MRes Life Sciences

Course Description

The programme provides training in research methodology starting with student-centred modules in statistics and project planning. The major activity of the programme is a focused research project which can be taken in the areas of biological sciences, psychology or vision sciences. You will have the opportunity to select your project from a list approved by our highly experienced research supervisors. The projects pose cutting-edge research questions relevant to the work in which staff are currently engaged.

You will receive training in the skills required to support research but the majority of your work (75%) will be devoted to research through experimentation and hypothesis testing. Many projects feature the use of newly-developed technologies relevant to the investigation in biological, psychological or vision sciences. The programme is deliberately flexible to provide additionally and enable attendance at lectures in subjects that underpin and support your research.

Some of the modules of this programme are:
Planning a Research Project
Research Methods for Biomedical Science
MRes Research Project
