Course Description

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/healthcare 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.

PhD with integrated master's

If you're planning to undertake a PhD after your master's, our Integrated PhD programme will enable you to combine your postgraduate taught course with a related PhD project in biology, medicine or health.

Accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) in order to progress to pharmacist pre-registration training and then to register as a pharmacist. Please note, the 5-year integrated MPharm degree programme includes pre-registration training.
