The Master of Research (MRes) in Biosciences is a one-year programme designed to provide a valuable postgraduate qualification that enables individuals who wish to improve their research skills to undertake a research project in the laboratory of an internationally renowned scientist. The programme would be ideal for someone thinking of undertaking a PhD but wishing to learn more about research. It also offers the award of a postgraduate certificate thus maximising accessibility to individuals working in industry or higher education, both at home or abroad.

Funding

Course Structure

The programme consists of 2 Stages:

Stage 1 (October – January)

Students complete taught modules totalling 60 credits, which can lead to the award of a Postgraduate Certificate in Biosciences. All modules are compulsory.

Modules

Research Techniques in Biosciences (20 credits)
Data Handling and Statistics (20 credits)
Key Skills in Research Practice (20 credits)
Stage 2 (February to September)

Students complete a practical project (100 credits).

The overall project structure for the Practical Project in Biosciences is a single piece of work held over 8 months of the MRes programme starting from February and finishing in September. The project will be selected by the student in combination with academic staff in one of the School’s Research Divisions. Students present a poster and give a talk on their research (20 credits).

This well-established MSc Sport & Exercise Physiotherapy course aims to develop sports physiotherapy practitioners to work at a specialist level within their field.

The course is suited to individuals working in a wide variety of sectors that involve managing people with sport or exercise related injuries, whether at high performance sport level or in a physiotherapy clinic.

The course has evolved thanks to input from national organisations such as the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports Medicine (ACPSM) and international organisations such as the International Federation of Sports Physical Therapy (IFSPT).

It is designed to help you develop towards ACPSM Gold standard level, using competencies defined by IFSP, as well as developing the knowledge, skills and behaviours that could help you pursue a career in sport and exercise.

The course aims to develop your evaluative, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and to increase your practical and theoretical knowledge of sports science and injury, so that you can apply these skills in the further advancement of your career.

This 12-month full-time MSc course explores the interdisciplinary field of oral biology, for those from either a scientific or clinical background. It provides the opportunity to develop a systematic understanding of knowledge and a critical awareness of current problems and new insights around the subject.

The course involves four taught core modules and a five-month laboratory research project leading to a dissertation. It encompasses a wide breadth of biomedical research that is also applicable to clinical dentistry and medicine, derived from the research strengths available within the School of Dentistry. The course has a strong research focus in the taught element, as well as the laboratory research projects, and it is envisaged as an entry for postgraduate research.

Distinctive features

The distinctive features of this course include:

This is a hybrid course, which provides taught components and a laboratory-based research project.
The taught part of the course has a strong focus on research methodology and modern experimental design/approaches, as well as the relevant Oral Biology background, thus laying a good foundation for the research project.
Students will develop laboratory research skills.
Training is provided to enable students to use research equipment independently.

This full-time MSc course is designed to provide graduates with advanced knowledge, understanding and skills in the rapidly advancing field of Cancer Biology and Therapeutics.

The course offers advanced teaching in the cellular aspects of cancer biology together with the molecular mechanisms underlying cancer development and progression. It provides in-depth training in cancer therapeutics, encompassing biomarkers and diagnosis, therapeutic targets, drug discovery and clinical trials and chemo/radio therapy, as well as aiming to develop your theoretical and practical research skills. This postgraduate programme offers a balanced combination of theory and practice that would serve as preparation for doctoral research or as a self-contained advanced qualification in its own right.

Graduates from this course should gain a breadth and depth of cancer-focused training that will make them highly attractive candidates to start or continue a career within the healthcare sector and research establishments.

The course offers research skills training and a laboratory-based research project that can provide you with the skills required to develop research hypotheses and critically evaluate translational approaches with respect to the development of contemporary cancer therapeutics.
