Research students will become our future academic and clinical leaders so we support a career structure from undergraduate to postgraduate to early career researcher and onwards.
Our MRes programme is designed is designed specifically to develop and support preparation for PhD fellowships and studentships.
Early career researchers are supported to apply for fellowships and projects grants to develop them towards becoming independent researchers.
Masters in Clinical Research
Masters in Clinical Research (MRes)
The MRes programme is multidisciplinary and is designed for practitioners who wish to develop a research or clinical academic career. Students will join experienced research teams to work on a specifically designed project from the outset. Successful students will also have the opportunity to develop their work into a PhD fellowship application.
For further information on the Clinical MRes programme please see the postgraduate prospectus.
The MPhil/PhD programme is designed to develop the healthcare researcher leaders of the future. Students will receive training in advanced quantitative and qualitative research methods as well as undertaking a research project designed to develop those research skills.
Projects will be expected to fit within the Faculty's programmes of research and be linked to the supervisors own area of research interest. Prospective students are encouraged to work with prospective supervisors to develop a suitable project linked to the work of an established research team.
We encourage potential applicants to apply for funding to cover fees, research costs and to provide a salary or stipend. We can advise on potential sources of funding and will work with high quality applicants to develop doctoral fellowship applications, in particular to the NIHR fellowship programme and clinical academic training programme for nurses, midwives and AHPs.
Visiting research students
We work with research students and researchers at all levels to develop fellowship applications to further develop their research skills and experience and progress along the academic/clinical academic career pathway.
