    One year of supervised laboratory-based research examined by thesis and oral. This is not a taught course. Applicants are typically science graduates and clinically qualified doctors undertaking scientific training. Research is in the areas of clinical transplantation, transplant immunology and orthopaedic research and covers basic biology through to clinical therapies. Specific research training relevant to your own project is provided in the laboratory in which you work.

    Further training is provided within the Addenbrooke's campus and elsewhere in the University and includes graduate workshops on research techniques, research seminars, and graduate student education seminars on generic subjects such as intellectual property rights, statistics, bioinformatics, communication skills, writing a thesis or paper, entrepreneurship, etc.


    Continuing

    Graduate students registered on the MPhil course and intending to apply to continue to a PhD will need to pass the MPhil degree in a satisfactory and timely manner, and have the required funding in place for further study.

    The MPhil course in Medical Science (Surgery)  is exclusively research-based.  The research area and supervisor will be confirmed during the application process.  Students will conduct their research with both University and NHS specialists in their field of study and may be co-supervised by someone on the Addenbrooke's staff.

       
    One to one supervision

    Students should expect to receive regular supervision from their principal supervisor, and to attend regular lab meetings, both on a weekly basis.

    Seminars & classes

    Students are likely to attend research group meetings where research results are presented and discussed.

    Lectures

    The students are encouraged to attend research lectures and seminars on a range of biomedical subject areas, both on campus and in the wider University of Cambridge.

    Practicals

    Students are expected to spend the majority of their study time pursuing basic and/or clinical research in the laboratories and in the Department. Students undertaking clinical research projects may be involved in the recruitment of patients onto trials and help to monitor their progress. Depending on their training, students may also undertake some basic procedures, such as sample collection.

    Small group teaching

    There may be an opportunity to participate in small group teaching if this is relevant to the student's project. More general small group teaching may be available.

    Literature_reviews

    Students are expected to undertake a literature review relevant to their chosen research project.

    Posters

    There are relevant conferences in the UK and overseas throughout the year.  If a student has developed his or her research to a sufficient level to coincide with a relevant conference, then there could be the opportunity to present a poster.

    In addition, there are periodic student-oriented events throughout the Biomedical Campus, including poster competitions in which students are encouraged to participate.

    Feedback

    The supervisor will provide feedback to the student each term.  The feedback will relate to the progress the student has made as well as specific comment on their research project.  This will be discussed with the student in advance of the submission of the report to the University. These reports are made online and can be accessed by students.

    Assessment

    Thesis

    Examination for the MPhil degree involves submission of a written dissertation of not more than 20,000 words . This is followed by an oral examination based on both the dissertation and a broader knowledge of the chosen area of research. The dissertation should provide evidence that the student can design and carry out investigations, assess and interpret the results obtained, and place the work in the wider perspectives of the subject.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
