- Entry requirements
Candidates are selected from the students admitted to the MBChB undergraduate course of The University of Manchester. The minimum criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in years 1 to 3 / 4 of the undergraduate medical programme.
For University of St Andrews students, this includes their three-year degree programme and the following one or two years spent in Manchester (years 3 and 4 of the Manchester programme).
We also accept intercalating medical students from other UK Universities including home medical and dental graduates and international medical graduates who can demonstrate relevant experience and commitment to biomedical research.
- How to apply
Note: The deadline for external applications for September 2014 entry is the end of February 2014.
Manchester Medical students intending to intercalate also need initial approval to do so from their Hospital Dean and must satisfy the Medical School's separate regulations for intercalation. Candidates will then be interviewed by the MRes panel. The online application should only be made if the interview process is successful.
Please note the Programme content is constantly under review, which includes some changes to course content and module structure. Therefore there MAY be some changes to content and delivery of the Programme for the September 2014 entry cohort.

It is recognised by the Research Councils, universities and employers that a gap has opened up between the skills possessed by new medical graduates and the skills normally expected on entry to a research degree or an industrial research career. The MRes in Medical Sciences has been specifically designed to bridge this gap.
The purpose of the MRes is to provide a Masters-level programme that will equip students from the medical and dental sciences with the skills and knowledge they need to pursue a research-based career in academic medicine. It focuses on medical research rather than biological science research.
Students interrupt their clinical training after Year 3 or 4 to undertake the programme.
Applications are also welcome from other eligible candidates.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:
- MRes (full-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): £8,850
International students (per annum): £20,100
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.
