Biomedical Sciences [MRes]

  • 12 months

Program Description

Crucial for clinical diagnosis of diseases and appropriate treatment of patients, Biomedical Science is vital to the operation of the NHS and related health industries. Largely based on individual research projects rather than coursework, the MRes allows you to specialise in a particular area of study. Especially useful if you want to proceed to a PhD.

  • The aim of this programme is to complete two different extensive research projects of your choice allowing you to acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills directly relevant to the study of human disease.
  • Receive excellent training in a wide range of modern molecular biology techniques required to enter the pharmaceutical / biotechnology industries or to pursue a career in research.
  • Experience the opportunity to specialise in a particular discipline or area. 
  • Gain valuable practical research experience to complete two extensive research projects.
  • If you are aiming to study for a higher biomedical science degree, this programme is designed for you.
  • The Mres is also an ideal introduction for overseas students who may wish to proceed to PhD biomedical science studies in the UK.

 

Main Campus Location

Mainly undertaken at the Gilmorehill Campus in the West End of Glasgow, with secondary teaching locations being the Garscube Campus to the north west of the city and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital on the southside of the city. Both are easy to get to by bus, subway or car.
