Ageing and Health - MRes


Course Description

Our Ageing and Health MRes is a research-based course with a taught component that is equivalent to an MSc. It provides a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research.

This course is for students with a BSc in life sciences or another science discipline. It is also for intercalating and qualified MBBS or BDS students. You can study the course as a stand-alone qualification or as an entry route to a PhD or MD.

The taught part of the course includes ageing and health specific content. You have the flexibility to select complementary modules and develop a bespoke course. You will also have training in general research principles, professional and key skills.

Your research project is the major element of the course. Your project involves 24 weeks of research in an area of ageing and health. Supervision is by expert academic researchers in your field of interest.

Ageing and health is a competitive research area. Your studies will be mainly based in academia, though potentially in industry too.
