Teaching

The MPhil course in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is exclusively research-based. The research area and supervisors will be confirmed during the application process. 

One to one supervision

All students are assigned a principal supervisor and an adviser, and day-to-day supervision will take place in the laboratory alongside regular progress meetings.

The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University’s expectations regarding supervision.

Seminars & classes

Students will attend research group meetings where research results are presented and discussed. They will also be expected to attend journal clubs and research seminars within the University.

Lectures

Students will attend University lectures relevant to their area of research.

Journal clubs

Students will be expected to attend journal club meetings organised by the Centre for Trophoblast Research (CTR).

Literature_reviews

Students may be asked to review literature and present to their research group or CTR journal club.

Posters

There are conferences in the UK and overseas throughout the year. If a student has developed their research to a sufficient level to coincide with a relevant conference, then there could be the opportunity to present their work.

The student will be expected to deliver a presentation of their research to the departmental or research group prior to submitting a thesis.

Feedback

The supervisor will provide feedback to the student at their regular meetings. The feedback will relate to the progress the student has made as well as specific comments on their research project, following which a termly report will be submitted to the University. These reports are accessible online to students.
