Life Sciences - MRes

Course Description

The programme provides training in research methodology starting with student-centred modules in statistics and project planning.

The major activity of the programme is a focused research project which can be taken in the areas of biological sciences, food sciences or vision sciences. You will have the opportunity to select your project from a list approved by our highly experienced research supervisors. The projects pose cutting-edge research questions relevant to the work in which staff are currently engaged.

You will receive training in the skills required to support research but the majority of your work (75%) will be devoted to research through experimentation and hypothesis testing. Many projects feature the use of newly-developed technologies relevant to the investigation in biological or vision sciences.

The programme is deliberately flexible to provide additionality and enable attendance at lectures in subjects that underpin and support your research.

Progression Opportunities

Graduates from this programme may go on to study PhDs and progress to positions as academic researchers or consultants. Many opportunities also exist in subject-related industry.
