The MRes is a web-based course, and is partnered by a separate course, the Master of Public Health (MPH) which has more taught units and a consequently, shorter dissertation. There are two streams to the MRes, one called Public Health and the other Primary Care. Distinction between the two is on the basis of the course units taken and the research topics chosen.
The aim of the course is to provide an entrance to research development, mainly for those who wish to become researchers, through a combination of coursework and research training.
Each year we recruit 4-5 Academic Clinical Fellows from Manchester and elsewhere in the UK. They study the MRes part time whilst completing their fellowships.
The programmes objectives are to provide a combination of coursework and research work to develop research skills in Public Health and Primary Care. The flexibility provided by offering coursework components online, allows those currently working to use this as a way of entering research training.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:
- MRes (full-time distance learning)
UK/EU students: £6,300
International students: £10,400
- MRes (part-time distance learning)
UK/EU students: £733 per unit, dissertation £2,002
International students: £1,333 per 15 credits, dissertation £2,402
The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees. Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.
Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.
