Overview

This is not a taught course and does not require completion of specific taught modules. The MSc by Research is often a popular choice for those wanting a full-time research experience and can provide a valuable stepping stone to those wishing to embark on a PhD programme.

The Biomedical Science (by research) programme from University of York aims to bring students from all over the world to our first-class research facilities. Over a one-year period you will develop and execute  research in your chosen field.

Areas of research fall within, but are not limited to, the diverse biomedical portfolio of our academic staff, neuroscience, molecular and cellular medicine, immunology, haematology and infection.

Working under the supervision of world-leading, research-active supervisors, you will be encouraged to contribute  to the development of new techniques, ideas or approaches as you pursue research in biomedical science at an advanced level.

Special features

Training and cohort-building programme: A dedicated Biomedical Science training and cohort-building programme will draw on the training offered by the collaborating departments, whilst offering the students on the programme additional training and opportunities to promote collaboration and networking across the programme.

Cohort activities will include: a monthly journal club, an annual research symposium, and other cross-departmental YBRI seminars and events.

Mentoring: All new research students are offered mentorship from within the existing research student community. For those new to York, mentors work in the same research area. Those who have previously studied at York will be offered a mentor working in a different research area. The mentor partnership is a means to explore options and understand more about working as a research student at the University of York.
