Our MClin Res Clinical Research course is aimed at health professionals and others working in a health setting who want to develop careers in clinical research, clinical and academic practice, or academic research with a strong clinical practice component. You will develop in-depth knowledge of the theoretical underpinnings of research and skills in research methods relevant to applied research in a range of contemporary health and social care settings. The course is mainly delivered online, but is complemented by two compulsory four-day campus-based introductory and winter study schools, and one mid-semester study day in Semesters 1 and 2. Most of the units that make up this course are shared with other students on master's and PhD programmes at Manchester. Please note this course is not designed to develop the knowledge and skills for a laboratory-based research career.
We require an honours first degree (Upper Second or above) in a relevant subject from an approved higher education institution. We may consider applicants with a Lower Second degree if you include documented evidence of exceptional innovative practice, practice leadership, service development, research projects and publications in your application. For part-time students, we also require written support from your employer to attend the course and complete any necessary requirements.
