  • Objectives
    The Master of Science by Research allows suitably qualified students to undertake supervised research studies in a selected and approved aspect of Health Sciences. Prior to formal application, intending applicants need to give consideration to the specific research topic they wish to investigate (view sample research topics). This should be determined in consultation with a Faculty academic staff member who will be the candidate’s primary supervisor. The Dean will advise Academic Senate whether an appropriate supervisor is available and whether the candidate if qualified to undertake the project.
  • Entry requirements

    Prior to formal application intending applicants need to give consideration to the specific research topic they wish to investigate. This should be determined in consultation with a Faculty academic staff member in order to see whether the Faculty can provide appropriate supervision and whether the candidate is familiar enough with the relevant research area to be able to undertake specialised study in that field.

    After consultation with a member of academic staff, the applicants for Master of Science by Research (Health Sciences) should write a brief statement (800-1200 words) indicating the area in which the research is to be conducted. This statement should include:

        * a proposed topic
        * prior research conducted by the applicant that relates to the proposal
        * previous publications by the candidate that relate to the proposal (PhD candidates)
        * literature references that provide relevant background
        * possible research methodologies (where relevant)
        * the name of a potential supervisor within the Faculty
