Taught units include a research skills unit, tutorials focusing on critical appraisal and research publications, practical skills in biomedicine and a clinical masterclass unit which focuses on clinical research skills such as study design, ethics and academic career pathways.

Your research placement is spent with a single research group over the year, which has the advantage of allowing you to become an integrated part of the team and increases the depth and complexity of your research. The first ten weeks are spent undertaking a literature review and writing a research proposal. This is followed by six months of laboratory time, ending with submission of a final dissertation.

Each student will be allocated a personal supervisor within their research group and also attend a series of one-to-one meetings with the course director or deputy to ensure learning goals are being achieved.

Coursework and assessment

You will be assessed through presentations, written reports and a final report.

Course unit details

The course comprises five compulsory components - four taught components and one research placement:

  • research skills units
  • Clinical Masterclass
  • tutorials
  • practical skills in biomedicine
  • one full-time research placement.

Facilities

You will be able to access a range of facilities throughout the University.

Disability support

Practical support and advice for current students and applicants is available from the Disability Advisory and Support Service .

Career opportunities

Many of our students go on to join the NIHR Clinical Academic Training Pathway .
