Master of Clinical Research

This Master of Clinical Research (MClin Res) focuses on the production of a substantial piece of work in a chosen specialist area of interest which is negotiated upon entry to the course. The programme will equip you with extensive knowledge and understanding of the research process, research methods and methodologies. You will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate a deep and advanced knowledge of your specialist topic of study and evidence-based practice while engaging in independent research practice to a high standard. This will ultimately translate into you designing, delivering and evaluating a research project from inception to successful completion, with the support and guidance of experts in clinical practice.
