Summary

This degree is designed primarily for students with no previous specialisation in marine science such as graduates with a degree in biological sciences, chemistry or materials science, physics, mathematics, environmental science, physical geography or related disciplines. The programme includes compulsory introductory modules that provide a foundation in interdisciplinary marine science, along with the opportunity to specialise in particular areas through an option of modules, as well as research project experience. To highlight the specialisations possible through the option modules of the programme, we have developed “pathways” of suggested module choices, which include:

– Marine Biology and Ecology

– Physical Oceanography and Climate Dynamics

– Marine Biogeochemistry

– Marine Geology and Geophysics

Students can either follow one of these ‘pathways’, or mix options from different pathways, where the timetable allows, to pursue broader interests.Graduates often pursue careers in the marine environmental sector or undertake PhD research in marine sciences.

Summary

This programme is a unique collaboration, jointly delivered by Southampton and Marwell Wildlife. Marwell Wildlife is a conservation charity with a zoological park as part of its conservation profile. It undertakes a broad portfolio of conservation research including managing individuals and populations of threatened species and restoration of endangered wildlife and ecosystems. This MRes is the only wildlife conservation programme currently available in the UK to offer such a high degree of interaction between a university and a conservation organisation. Its ultimate aim is to produce individuals with the skills, experience and academic credentials required for employment as conservation biologists. To provide an immersive experience for students and to ensure we have the scope to cover all that the MRes encompasses, the course is based on a full calendar year, running from October until late September. The MRes is a full-time course, with no provision for a part-time option at this time. Tuition fees will depend on which research project is undertaken.

Modules

- Wildlife Conservation: Disciplines and Principles

- Fieldwork- Before, During and After (10 day field course to Marwell Wildlife's conservation and research site in Kenya)

- Techniques in monitoring and surveying

- Advanced Quantitative methods

- MRes Wildlife Conservation research project (independent research in the UK or Africa)

Course Description

The MRes offers exciting opportunities to develop advanced scientific, research and transferable skills required to become an independent researcher.

The MRes is organised by the Centre for Human Development, Stem Cells & Regeneration (CHDSCR) which undertakes fundamental research into early development and stem cells, together with applied translational research targeting the NHS and patient benefit.

Through research projects totalling 32 weeks, you will develop a broad range of laboratory skills and work in different research environments. You will be supervised by internationally recognised academic researchers. In addition to providing broader training in scientific research, the course will develop your transferable skills including time and project management, public speaking, critical appraisal and scientific writing, thus aiding employability for a variety of careers.

Key Information

The intake for this MRes is 15-20 students.

What does this MRes provide?

During the one year, full time programme that commences in September/October, MRes students undertake taught modules in Research Skills in Biomedical Sciences, Stem Cells, Development & Regenerative Medicine, and Advanced Scientific Skills. Students also undertake two research projects totalling 32 weeks, to develop a broad range of laboratory skills and gain experience of working in different research environments. Students are supervised by internationally recognised Academic researchers in the CHDSCR.

Why study this MRes at the University of Southampton?

The University of Southampton is consistently ranked in the top 10 national and the top 100 international Universities. We are a world leading research intensive university, with a strong emphasis on education and are renowned for our innovation and enterprise. The CHDSCR is a Centre for excellence and strategic importance. Students work within vibrant and thriving interdisciplinary research programmes that harness the translational strength of the University, together with an outstanding clinical infrastructure and enterprise to translate pioneering developmental and stem cell science for patient benefit.

Who should apply?

High-achieving Biological/Biomedical Science graduates interested in developing further laboratory based research skills and subject specific knowledge before committing to a PhD programme, or a career in academia, industry, government policy or science journalism.

How will this MRes enhance your career prospects?

In addition to providing broader training in the intellectual basis of scientific research in Stem Cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine, the course will develop your transferable skills including time and project management, public speaking, critical appraisal and scientific writing, thus aiding employability for a variety of careers.

What will you learn in the modules?

i) Stem Cells, Development & Regenerative Medicine module
Students are introduced to core concepts through a series of facilitator-led workshops focussing on key research publications. Students critically appraise primary research papers and develop the skills required to understand, critique and interpret research findings. Integral to these workshops is the requirement for students to present their thoughts and participate in group discussions with both their peers and academic facilitators.

ii) Research Skills in Biomedical Sciences (RSBS) module
A combination of taught and practical sessions are used to introduce students to the core concepts underlying statistical analysis and study design that support students in handling their own data and critically appraising data published by others.

iii) Advanced Scientific Skills module
A series of taught and practical sessions introduce students to additional core concepts used in Biomedical Sciences such as the analysis and critical appraisal of large data sets. In addition, key principles required to relay research to both a scientific and lay audience are introduced. Students write both a scientific and lay abstract for a published primary paper and give a research presentation suitable for a lay audience. Thus, students develop the skills required to communicate their research to both scientists and non-specialists.

iv) Research Project modules
In the two research projects, students are introduced to a range of laboratory skills gaining valuable practical experience of research methodology, experimental design, data interpretation, viva voce, scientific writing, oral and poster presentations.

What teaching and learning methods will be used?

A variety of methods are used including lectures, research seminars, small group discussions, journal club presentations, analysis of large data sets and in depth research projects which incorporate the evaluation and presentation of research findings within the field of stem cell biology. A range of summative and formative assessment methods are used to assess student performance. These include oral presentation, poster presentation, written assignments/critical review, viva voce, laboratory proficiency, analysis of large datasets, lay/scientific abstracts and preparation of a research proposal.

What are the entry requirements for this MRes?

The minimum classification normally expected for a degree entrant is at least a second class upper division (1st or 2:1) in Biological/Biomedical Sciences or a closely related subject from any approved University.

Qualifications from non-UK institutions must be of an equivalent standard to those of UK Universities. Before commencing the course, non-UK applicants should obtain an overall IELTS score of 7.0, with a minimum of 6.0 in each component.

What are the fees for this MRes?

Home/EU: £5,900 tuition fee + £5,100 bench fee

Overseas: £18,800 tuition fee + £5,100 bench fee
