Reproduction and Pregnancy

Fertility and pregnancy problems are still very common in both the UK and the rest of the world. Our MRes in Reproduction and Pregnancy (formerly known as Maternal and Fetal Health) is a unique course designed to equip you with the skills to pursue a research career in pregnancy or related disciplines to help solve these problems. You will have the opportunity to take part in research work at Europe's largest pregnancy research centre - the Manchester Maternal and Fetal Health Research Centre (MFHRC) - at an early stage in your career. You will also be able to contribute to public-domain research output and conduct an in-depth analysis of a specific area of pregnancy research over six months. This will enable you to gain hands-on experience of the latest pregnancy and research technologies.

Entry requirements

The course is open to medical or science graduates and intercalating medical students (after completion of the 3rd or 4th year of medical school). Normally a BSc (1st or 2:1) or MBChB or equivalent is expected from a British university in an appropriate biological or medical subject.

For intercalating MBChB students, the minimum criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in years 1-3 or 1-4 of the undergraduate medical programme with normally no failure at any examination, and research motivation.

Overseas students require a high class honours degree or equivalent in a biomedical subject from a high ranking university and should refer to entry requirements from your country for further information.

Applicants with other professional (including midwifery), or research-related, experience will be considered.

This programme has both taught and research components, does not require applicants to have already developed their own research proposals, and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience.
We ask for English language proof from applicants from non-majority English speaking countries.

Specifically, we require a minimum of:
IELTS- minimum 6.5 overall with 6.0 in writing
TOEFL: 90 internet-based (with 22 in each component)
