The HYMS MPhil is a research programme open to people from a wide range of backgrounds, both clinical and non-clinical.
The MPhil programme is three years long, or six years part-time.
To successfully complete your MPhil, you will conduct a substantial independent research project which will lead to an original contribution to knowledge. You can work in a wide range of areas – our current students are researching topics as diverse as the molecular mechanisms of cardiovascular disease and how dietary stresses and strains affect skull shape.
Your project should be in an academic area that's covered by one of our research centres.
As a MPhil 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.
