The MRes in Biosciences enables students to customise their course according to their needs and future career ambitions by selecting diverse topics and projects under the guidance of the Director of Studies who advises on suitable taught units and laboratory projects.
The MRes provides a unique mix of taught components, extended laboratory projects, literature reviews and preparation of a grant proposal based on a research dissertation. The programmes also address the scientific, ethical and commercial context within which the research takes place.
All of the MRes programmes can be studied as the first year of our Integrated PhD programme.
