Entry requirements

We welcome applications from intercalating medical and dental students from The University of Manchester and other UK institutions, as well as medical and dental graduates and international medical graduates who can demonstrate relevant experience and commitment to biomedical research.

Intercalating students at Manchester are required to have satisfactory achievement in Years 1 to 3 or 4 of the MBChB course. For University of St Andrews students studying at Manchester, this includes the three-year degree and the following one or two years spent in Manchester (Years 3 and 4 of the Manchester MBChB course).

International students must have an equivalent classification to the MBChB and should refer to entry requirements from your country for further information.

Course content

Our MRes Medical Sciences course has been designed to bridge the gap between the skills of new medical graduates and those required to embark on a clinical academic career.

This course equips students and graduates from the medical and dental sciences with the skills and knowledge you need to pursue a research-based career in academic medicine. We focus on medical research rather than biological science research, although our students' research projects have spanned the breadth of basic, clinical and epidemiological research across a wide range of medical specialities.

We welcome applications from intercalating medical and dental students who can interrupt their clinical training after Year 3 or 4 to undertake this MRes, as well as applications from other eligible candidates.

Our course has both taught and research components and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience. Many of our students have no previous research experience and the MRes Medical Sciences is seen as a first introduction into medical research.
