University of Sheffield
This unique one-year programme is run by the Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) and funded by Medical Research Council and Arthritis Research UK. CIMA is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield, the University of Liverpool and the University of Newcastle. The course provides multidisciplinary research training on the musculoskeletal system as a whole in the context of ageing. The training has a strong focus on employability. Topics range from basic science to clinical aspects, from in vitro to in vivo models, and from the latest advances in the assessment of the musculoskeletal system to lifestyle interventions. Although you'll be based at Sheffield, the course involves exchange visits to the other universities. The taught element is online over 12 weeks and may be taken remotely (depending on student status, live interactions will take place between 9-5pm UK time). This includes live lectures, wikis and blogs, and tutor support. The research project involves hands-on laboratory or clinical work, and can be taken at whichever of the three universities holds the relevant expertise. You'll also have the chance to take part in seminars, workshops and networking events, with some events involving industry and funders. Please see our University website for the most up-to-date course information.
Master of Research - MRes: Minimum 2:1 in a biomedical science-related subject. English language requirements: Overall IELTS grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.5 in each component, or equivalent.
You'll be assessed through exams, coursework, a mock grant proposal and a research project dissertation.
