Module overview

As part of the one year MSc Biomedical Sciences by Research programme, all students will undertake two, 18-week research projects in different laboratories. This offers students the opportunity to develop a broad range of research skills and to develop a well-rounded understanding of the field. Students will be offered as much choice as possible for the project, with information on project availability being provided by the module lead. Students will be encouraged to develop a wide range of skills in order to gain as much from the programme as possible.

Each student will have a clearly identified supervisor who will provide guidance and support in both the practical and theoretical elements of the project. Students will need to utilise appropriate research techniques to address a clear research question. In addition, students will be expected to develop a good understanding of the published literature within the specific field.

Assessment of the project will be through an oral presentation and a written research report. In addition, students will undertake a viva voce on their project as a formative assessment. This will provide the students with experience in the discussion of their research and its wider implications.
