RVC Master of Research (MRes) may be for you if you do not wish to commit to undertaking a PhD but want to try a sizeable research project and get the generic skills applicable to research. You can do this over one-year full time, or over two years part-time while you are continuing your career.
The MRes is designed to equip you to acquire the experience and the skills needed to enter a PhD programme or to move on to careers where advanced research experience will help you. It is an excellent training opportunity for both biological and veterinary graduates and addresses both basic and clinical problems in the biosciences, with applications in veterinary and human medicine. Research areas span cell and molecular science, whole animal physiology and population medicine.
An RVC MRes will develop you as a scientist who is capable of working across interdisciplinary teams and who can tackle problems of practical relevance to veterinary and medical science. You will:
- Learn from experts who produce cutting-edge research in a range of subjects and are published in the top academic journals
- Join an international team of staff and students
- Benefit from close proximity to other international centres of excellence in biomedical and biological sciences.
We have seven fully funded MRes projects are available as part of the OIE Veterinary Education Twinning between the Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) and the Royal Veterinary College
(RVC). The aim of the twinning is to share best practice and facilitate long term engagement of RVC and JUST in veterinary public health training and research in the Middle East. Find out more about the initiative and the projects on our web page.These MRes projects are open Home/EU students only. Tuition fees are covered and a stipend provided. The deadline for applications is 17th July 2016, starting in October 2016.
There is a further fully funded MRes project - Serological Profiling of Autoantibodies in Canine Hypoadrenocorticism. You can find the details on the web page. Deadline for applications is 17th July 2016.
We also have a range of exciting self-funded projects to offer starting in October 2016. You will join the RVC to undertake a specific piece of work under the direction of two supervisors, working within one or more of the RVC’s research groups. We offer a range of specific MRes projects which you can apply for or you may have your own area of research in mind.
Your MRes will culminate in a research dissertation of 10,000-15,000 words and an oral presentation. To underpin the research you are undertaking you will participate in training skills workshops, courses and seminars alongside other post-graduate researchers and you will be supported by your supervisors and the Graduate School.
