The MRes has been specifically designed to bridge this gap.

About

The purpose of the MRes is to provide a Masters-level programme that will equip students from the medical and dental sciences with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a research-based career in academic medicine. It focuses on medical research rather than biological science research.

Students interrupt their clinical training after Year 3 or 4 to undertake the programme.

Applications are also welcome from other eligible candidates.

            English Language Requirements

            You only need to take one of these language tests:

            • Minimum required score: 6.5

              The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.
