The HYMS MSc by thesis is a one-year research programme (or two years part-time). The programme is ideal if you want to
get involved in postgraduate research without immediately committing
to a lonhger project such as an MPhil or PhD.
About the MSc by thesis programme
To successfully complete your MSc, you will conduct an independent research project. You can work in a wide range of areas -- our current students are researching topics as diverse as
lung disease, cystic fibrosis, care of the newborn infant, and
the development of new methods for analysing cell-to-cell
interactions in tissue using a micro-fluidic based approach.
Whatever you choose, your project should be in an academic area that's covered by one of our academic centres.
As an MSc student at HYMS, you will also
take part in our postgraduate training scheme, which
provides you with extra opportunities to develop both specialist
and transferable skills.
