Course content

The health and social care sectors are constantly changing in order to provide better treatment and access to care. Improving health and social care services would not be possible without the work of well-trained researchers.

Our Health Research Masters degree equips you to conduct high quality, rigorous research. You’ll benefit from our strong emphasis on both theoretical and practical skills and you'll be supported by a multidisciplinary team of experienced researchers.

The course is suitable for a diverse range of people, and our students include qualified nurses, pharmacists and occupational therapists – as well as others with a background in natural science, social science or the third sector. The entire course can also be studied online, giving you the freedom to work towards a Masters around your personal and professional commitments.

Course objectives

The objective of our MRes Health Research is to help you become a skilled multi-disciplinary healthcare researcher, able to understand and confidently use research techniques appropriate to your practice or subject area. We focus on equipping you with a combination of skills and experience, as well as placing an emphasis on developing confidence in both independent study and working as part of a team.

This MRes has been designed to be suitable for both novice and experienced researchers. No matter what your level of expertise may be, we will equip you with the necessary knowledge and abilities to prepare for a career in research or to study for a PhD.

Professional accreditations

This course meets the requirements for the ESRC 1+3 awards, which means prospective students are eligible to apply for a studentship providing funding for a one-year research training Masters linked to a three-year PhD. Read more at the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science website.

Work placements

You’ll have the opportunity to do a research placement – either virtually or on campus – with world-class research teams working on live projects.
