Undertake a Masters of Research (MRes) in the area of Veterinary Science at the Institutes of Infection & Global Health, and Ageing & Chronic Disease, University of Liverpool
as part of the MRes in Clinical Sciences Programme.
Liverpool is a vibrant, cultural city and the University, a member of the Russell Group, provides an excellent environment for undertaking a postgraduate research programme.
The MRes in Clinical Sciences programme is a structured 1 Year Masters Degree by research, organised around the research interests of the Institutes of Infection & Global Health, and Ageing & Chronic Disease, and consists of eleven Programme Pathways (listed below) reflecting the world-class research being carried out in these areas within both Institutes.
Clinical Infection & Global Health
Emerging & Zoonotic Infections
Eye & Vision Science
Obesity & Endocrinology
The programme is designed to provide the skills necessary to pursue a research-based career. It is suitable for science graduates wishing to pursue further studies at PhD level or for those wishing to gain research experience before moving into an industrial setting. It is also an ideal research-orientated degree for intercalating medical, dental or veterinary undergraduates.
To undertake your Masters in the area of Veterinary Science you will carry out three 10-week research projects with academics working in this research area (both clinical and non-clinical). You would then qualify with the award MRes in Clinical Sciences (Veterinary Science). Students in addition also participate in the lecture series and transferable skills elements offered as part of the wider MRes course.
Further details of the academic members of staff who contribute to the Veterinary Science research area within the MRes and their research interests can be found at the Institute of Infection & Global Health and Institute of Ageing & Chronic Disease websites [http://www.liv.ac.uk/infection-and-global-health/
]. In addition, examples of the types of research projects which were available in this area for the 2014-15 course can be found in the MRes Clinical Sciences Research Project Booklet (available upon request).
Overview of the course
The programme comprises a total of 7 modules. Students must complete all seven modules to obtain the 180 credits necessary to gain the MRes degree. In addition to the three research project modules, there are four generic taught modules providing training in Transferable Skills, Basic Laboratory Skills, along with two Lecture/Journal Club based modules highlighting recent advances in Clinical Sciences (including Veterinary Science). Further information is available in the course handbook, available on request.
