Course summary

There is increasing demand for high quality clinical research to underpin practice, and exciting new career pathways are available for suitably qualified practitioners to lead and develop this research provision.

This course is based in the vibrant research environment of the School of Health Sciences and provides extensive clinical research training for allied health professionals, midwives, nurses and other professionals working in a clinical environment.

The course is suitable for clinicians wishing to pursue a clinical academic career and conforms with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) framework for this level of study. Clinicians will be prepared for a leadership role in research and may be able to progress to doctoral-level studies.

Note this course is based at either Falmer or Eastbourne, depending on your supervisor and chosen modules. If you have questions or need more information, the course team will be happy to help.

Course structure

As a research degree, the research component is greater than the taught part of the course. The course is made up of four taught modules in the early part of the course, and a supervised clinical research project.

The taught component involves a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops, and the research component is supported by a series of workshops and individual tutorials.


The course gives you the opportunity to develop your clinical research career by developing your research leadership skills. Many of our students go on to join the NIHR Clinical Academic Training Pathway. The course also acts as a platform for progression to doctoral-level research for some graduates.

Students can exit with PGDip & PGCert.
