The MRes is a research-based Masters degree that offers specialised training in specific areas.
The difference between the MRes and an MSc is that you'll spend more time on a lab-based project, and the final assessment (a thesis) and final award is closer to that for a PhD.
This degree is delivered by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences and offers a vibrant research environment for postgraduate training.
The taught part of your degree will increase your understanding of general scientific skills like statistics, ethics, and effective communication, while also increasing your knowledge in your specific subject through lectures and workshops.
You'll then move on to work on your project in an active research laboratory with a Principal Investigator and, potentially, with post-doctoral fellows and other postgraduate students.
This is an excellent way to find out about what a career in science is really like. You'll also develop vital technique and project management skills that will prove highly attractive to future employers.

Living in Glasgow: Ellie Kissel, MSc Information & Library Studies
I have always wanted to study in the UK and when searching for programems on the American Library Association website, the course at Strathclyde stood out as the one which would enhance my professional career. I love living in Glasgow and it reminds me of the southern hospitality of my home state of Kentucky.
Skills for cutting-edge research: Manto Chouliara, MSc Applied Physics
The course has provided me with a wide range of experimental physics skills and the opportunity to use them in a cutting-edge research project. The multicultural environment on campus supports the collaboration of students from the world, and through numerous group-work projects prepares us for our future jobs.
Course flexibility & further study: Shouyue Wu, MSc Optical Technologies
I've enjoyed the flexible nature of the course which allowed me to choose classes and projects to suit my interests. There's always guidance from staff, not only about studying, but also about living in Glasgow and your future career. I am planning to do a PhD project on optical fibre to prepare me to work in the industry.
