Medical Sciences MRes


Course Description

It is recognised by the Research Councils, universities and employers that a gap has opened up between the skills possessed by new medical graduates and the skills normally expected on entry to a research degree or an industrial research career. The MRes in Medical Sciences has been specifically designed to bridge this gap.

The purpose of the MRes is to provide a Masters-level programme that will equip students from the medical and dental sciences with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a research-based career in academic medicine. It focuses on medical research rather than biological science research.

Students interrupt their clinical training after Year 3 or 4 to undertake the programme.

Applications are also welcome from other eligible candidates.

This programme has both taught and research components and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience.

Visit the Medical Sciences MRes page on the University of Manchester website for more details!

Entry Requirements

Candidates are selected from the students admitted to the MBChB undergraduate course of The University of Manchester. The minimum criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in years 1 to 3 / 4 of the undergraduate medical programme. For University of St Andrews students, this includes their three-year degree programme and the following one or two years spent in Manchester (years 3 and 4 of the Manchester programme). We also accept intercalating medical students from other UK Universities including home medical and dental graduates and international medical graduates who can demonstrate relevant experience and commitment to biomedical research.
