During this course students will undertake a 9 month research project, with a 3 month write up of their dissertation. We will train students in how to design, conduct, analyse and write up a medical sciences-related research project. Supervisors will be drawn from our academic staff. Depending on the project this may also involve partners from a local NHS trust. Students will learn to design and report independent and original research, to critically evaluate relevant literature, to develop problem solving skills, to analyse research data, to communicate the results of research, to understand scholarly conventions in the discipline area, and to have respect for intellectual integrity and the ethics of research.
Applicants must hold an upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or its equivalent, in a relevant subject area. Candidates with a lower 2nd Class degree may be invited to interview to assess suitability. Applications from intercalating medical students are welcome also. For international students: IELTS 6.5 score overall (with no less than 6.0 in each element), or equivalent qualification.
Original research and thesis, viva voce.
