Recruiter: Newcastle University
Level: Masters courses
Course Fee: UK/EU: full time £5,500 International: full time £14,750
The MRes in Epidemiology is one of a suite of MRes programmes. It provides a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research, particularly both clinical and academic epidemiology and public health. It is designed for graduates with a BSc in the life sciences and is also suitable for graduates from other science disciplines and for intercalating and fully qualified MBBS or BDS students. The MRes can be taken either as a stand-alone qualification or act as an entry route onto a PhD or MD.
The MRes is a research-based qualification with a taught component that is of equivalent standard to an MSc. It provides training in contemporary medical and molecular biosciences through three subject-knowledge modules related to and including those in epidemiology (60 credits), professional and key skills training (20 credits), and a 24-week research project (100 credits). The programme enables you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry. If you register for an integrated MRes/PhD, MRes/MD or MRes/DDS you will be allocated projects that are relevant to your proposed PhD or MD, or DDS programme.
A subject-specific module in clinical epidemiology provides theoretical and practical understanding of the value, theoretical basis and practicalities of epidemiology and approaches to epidemiological research and covers the basic epidemiology of cancer, children's health and adult onset diseases, with an emphasis on practical application.
