Course content

The Master of Research (MRes) in Biosciences is a one-year programme designed to provide a valuable postgraduate qualification that enables individuals who wish to improve their research skills to undertake a research project in the laboratory of an internationally-renowned scientist. The programme would be ideal for someone thinking of undertaking a PhD but wishing to learn more about research. It also offers the award of a postgraduate certificate thus maximising accessibility to individuals working in industry or higher education, both at home or abroad.

The programme’s overall aims are to provide postgraduates and individuals from industry, from both home and overseas, with the opportunity to undertake research training at two distinct academic levels. This will enable the acquisition of essential skills, techniques and experience necessary to become a more competent, employable researcher.

Bioscientists have a vital role to play in finding solutions to the world’s biggest challenges – and with our world-leading research, innovative teaching, and a supportive and welcoming atmosphere, there has never been a better time to join our School of Biosciences.
