Course summary

Overview

This MRes has been designed to provide you with an opportunity to develop your research skills in applied medical ethics. It provides an excellent stepping stone to PhD research.

You will begin in the first semester with intensive research methods training which will allow you to develop your skills under the supervision of expert tutors. You’ll gain a range of skills and valuable experience for a career in academic or professional research. You will then spend the remainder of the year writing an extended dissertation in which you can examine in depth an area of particular interest to you within the rich field of medical ethics, with the support of a research supervisor. You will meet with your research supervisor on campus in Leeds on a regular basis.

This course is available to study part time, and also to study both full time and part time through online distance learning. You can study this subject as an MA, which consists of more taught content and less independent research, both full time and part time either online or on campus. If you study for the MRes then you’ll be able to audit relevant modules from this MA course. You can also study this subject as a PGDip where you take fewer modules overall, both full time and part time either online or on campus.

Learning and teaching

The Research Methods module is delivered online through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), and will be available in that form to both campus-based and online students.

Of course, independent research is also vital to this programme to develop your skills and help you develop your own ideas and interests.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

The dissertation (20,000 words) will form the bulk of the assessment for the MRes. During the Research Methods module you will be guided through the process of preparing for the dissertation, through a range of assessments including an annotated bibliography, a reflective log, a research proposal and a poster presentation.

Career opportunities

The heavy emphasis on research skills means this course is excellent preparation for PhD study and an academic career. However, you’ll also develop important transferable skills including oral and written communication, analysis and problem-solving which are valuable across a wide range of roles in different sectors.
