This is a web-based programme hosted within the School of Dentistry. The MRes programme provides a combination of interactive online learning and project work to help students to develop a critical evidence-based approach to planning services and improving oral health at a population level. The MRes will develop skills for health services research and be especially suitable for those who wish to study for a PhD subsequently but have limited experience of research.
The MRes comprises 6 course units and a dissertation [180 credits]: - Biostatistics [15 credits] - Epidemiology [15 credits] - Evidence Based Practice [15 credits] - Dissertation/project [90 credits] - Three optional course units [15 credits each] which must include at least one of the following units: ---Oral health and Disease in Populations ---Implementing Strategy in Dental Services
Qualitative Research Methods [15 credits] is a prerequisite for any students planning a qualitative dissertation.
Students are advised to take at least two core course units in the first year of the course for part-time students, or in the first semester for full-time students.
There are two routes of entry. 1) A recognised primary degree in a dental subject and a preferred minimum of two years post qualification experience. 2) A degree (minimum 2:2) in a non-clinical subject and preferably two years of working experience. Normally the degree will be in a science or social science subject and the individual will be working in some area with a link to oral health. In all cases, the degree held must be from a recognised institution.
Please refer to the course website for fee details.
