Biological Sciences

The one-year Master of Research (MRes) programme is an innovative route to starting out on a research career. The MRes will provide you with a unique opportunity to experience research projects over a broad range of disciplines and laboratory environments. Our MRes programme allows you to gain research experience and professional skills, sometimes in a different area to your first degree, before deciding on a future career in industry or academic research. This will allow you to make an informed choice about the research area you want to invest your scientific career in. You choose two laboratory placements which can be in any of our areas of research within the biological and biomedical sciences. As we have over 200 research active labs we can offer you a wide range of projects to choose from. The programme also helps to develop your transferable skills in essential areas such as experimental design, statistics, bioethics and science communication.
