Course summary

The MSc by Research in Surgical Sciences is a full time research programme offering research training for both clinical and non-clinical graduates in your chosen area. The MSc by Research programme is of shorter length than a doctoral programme. As an MSc by Research student you will focus on a specific research project. Projects can be chosen from across all areas of research in the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS), for example: ageing and degenerative diseases; cancer; cardiac/cardiovascular sciences; cell biology and genes; clinical trials and epidemiology; diabetes; evidence-based medicine; immunology; musculoskeletal science; neurosciences; oncology; stem cells; translational medicine and medical technology. You will work closely with an academic supervisor who oversees your studies, and you will produce a thesis that represents a significant and substantial piece of work. If you are a student in the experimental sciences you are also likely to collaborate with your supervisor on shared laboratory work as part of a research team. There is usually no required coursework. However, the Medical Sciences Division skills training programme offers opportunities to develop your research and professional skills over the duration of your MSc by Research. It is recommended that you spend at least ten days a year on your graduate skills training. After successfully completing an MSc by Research in Surgical Sciences, students typically progress to either further studies for a DPhil/PhD and an academic career or, for clinically qualified individuals, to further clinical training and/or clinician-scientist posts.
