What students have said: 'Choosing to study the Masters in Clinical Research at King’s is a decision I won’t regret! I previously completed my BSc in Mental Health Nursing here and was very excited to return to the fun and friendly faculty. The teaching and academic staff have always encouraged me to take my ideas further, and supported me to publish a paper in a peer reviewed academic journal. Following on from the MRes, I was successful at gaining funding for an NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship. The MRES greatly influenced my success in gaining this fellowship. The fellowship will support me to study an PhD level here at the Faculty, while also maintaining my clinical links through working one day a week at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust" Sarah McAllister, Masters in Clinical Research
