Our Public Health MRes programme provides an innovative distance learning research degree that meets the need of researchers in all public health settings, from local authorities to non-governmental organisations in both the UK and worldwide.
The modular nature enables you to design the taught component around your own training needs, and to study this at a distance.
Our programme provides an introduction to research development, mainly for those currently in the healthcare workforce who wish to become researchers or pursue a research pathway within their profession.
This is done through a combination of coursework and research training.
After completing the taught component, you will be supported in carrying out your own research project or full systematic review.
Most of the staff teaching and/or supervising on this programme are from the Institute of Population Health, giving you the opportunity to work alongside international experts in this area.
We offer two MRes programmes, one in Public Health and one in Primary Care. Distinction between the two is based on the course units taken and the research topics chosen.
Our programme is ideal for Academic Clinical Fellows (ACFs) who wish to gain research experience in the field of public health.
You should have a minimum of an Upper Second honours degree or the overseas equivalent. Significant relevant research or professional experience may be considered in place of an academic qualification lower than an Upper Second. Applicants who fail to meet the required entry criteria for the programme will be considered on an individual basis, but may be required to enrol initially on another route of the programme such as a postgraduate certificate or diploma. These people may be allowed to progress to the full MSc course if they pass the course at the required, MSc level.
