MRes in Drug Delivery Systems
A one-year research-based Masters degree offering training in research methods in Drug Delivery Systems.
This course is designed to provide students with intensive laboratory-based training in research methods, supported by in-depth understanding, in Drug Delivery Systems. The aim is to prepare graduates to make contributions, as individuals and members of a team, to research-oriented activities in the biomedical industries and related service sectors, or academia. The course is also well-suited to students wishing to upgrade a first degree, change field, or gain valuable laboratory experience before employment or a PhD.
The MRes degree is mainly focussed on research and students will spend around two-thirds of their time undertaking a laboratory-based research project, supervised by an academic member of staff. Outside the research project, students will be taught through lectures, workshops and practical classes in three areas:
- transferable skills training in data mining, interpretation and presentation; experimental planning; personal effectiveness, commercialisation and entrepreneurship
- advanced-level techniques, learning practical skills in formulation, testing and analysis
- advanced-level topics, gaining an in-depth understanding of drug delivery systems.
Students should normally have a second-class honours degree in a biology-related subject. Other qualifications may also be considered.
Tuition fees for Home and EU students are currently £3,400 full-time.
Tuition fees for Overseas students are currently £14,800 full-time.
Bench fees for Home, EU and oversease students are currently £1,500 full-time.
