Health Sciences Research

This programme aims to provide you with a firm foundation in biomedical research by enhancing your knowledge, understanding and critical awareness of the scientific method, and practical experience in an area related to your interests. Taught units provide intensive training in research methodology, experimental design, statistical analyses and data interpretation. Skills training in verbal and written communication is also emphasised. The core of the programme is an 8-month research project, conducted within one of the University of Bristol's internationally recognised research groups in either the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry or the Faculty of Medical and Veterinary Sciences. Opportunities will be available in laboratory or clinical-based investigations. The programme is suitable for medical, dental and veterinary students interested in pursuing a research-intensive intercalation option after three years of study. It is also suitable for graduates in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science and bioscience subjects who wish to develop their research skills.

Entry requirements

For intercalators and graduates in medicine, dentistry and veterinary sciences, a mark of at least 60% is required. For science graduates, the requirement is an upper 2nd Class Honours degree (or international equivalent).
