Graduate Admissions

One year of supervised laboratory-based research examined by thesis and oral. This is not a taught course. Applicants are typically science graduates and clinically qualified doctors undertaking scientific training. Research is in the areas of clinical transplantation, transplant immunology, orthopaedic, urology and vascular research and covers basic biology through to clinical therapies. Specific research training relevant to your own project is provided in the laboratory in which you work.

Further training is provided within the Addenbrooke's campus and elsewhere in the University and includes graduate workshops on research techniques, research seminars, and graduate student education seminars on generic subjects such as intellectual property rights, statistics, bioinformatics, communication skills, writing a thesis or paper, entrepreneurship.

The course introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge. Its main aims are:

  • to give students with relevant experience at a first-degree level the opportunity to carry out focused research in the discipline under close supervision; and
  • to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme, students will have:

  • a comprehensive understanding of techniques, and a thorough knowledge of the literature, applicable to their own research;
  • demonstrated originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in their field;
  • shown abilities in the critical evaluation of current research and research techniques and methodologies;
  • demonstrated some self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and acted autonomously in the planning and implementation of research.

Continuing

Graduate students registered on the MPhil course and intending to apply to continue to a PhD will need to pass the MPhil degree in a satisfactory and timely manner, and have the required funding in place for further study.
