Master of Clinical Research

This Master of Clinical Research (MClin Res) focuses on the production of a substantial piece of work in a chosen specialist area of interest which is negotiated upon entry to the course.

The programme will equip you with extensive knowledge and understanding of the research process, research methods and methodologies. You will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate a deep and advanced knowledge of your specialist topic of study and evidence-based practice while engaging in independent research practice to a high standard.

This will ultimately translate into you designing, delivering and evaluating a research project from inception to successful completion, with the support and guidance of experts in clinical practice.

Entry requirements

MClinRes: To join this programme, you should have a first class or upper second class honours degree in a cognate subject area or discipline. In exceptional circumstances, students with a lower second class honours degree classification may be admitted. Overseas applicants will be expected to demonstrate IELTS 7.0 or equivalent.

Each applicant will be required to submit a 500-word research proposal outlining the intended focus of their studies and demonstrating their enthusiasm and commitment towards the proposed subject. A formal registration interview/viva will be held for each candidate. The interview will be conducted by at least two members of staff, including the likely MClin Res supervisor.

Assessment methods

The taught research modules are assessed by critiquing a clinical research paper (written and oral presentation) and by the development of a research proposal. This proposal can then feed into the dissertation which is assessed through completion of a 25,000-word thesis and a viva voce examination.
