Study Details

MSc by Research 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

Population Health Sciences is part of the Bristol Medical School. Staff in the school have extensive national and international research collaborations, with several providing health policy advice for government organisations and international bodies. Staff and students in the department are also members of the cross-faculty Bristol Population Health Science Institute.

Our staff are multi-disciplinary and include statisticians, epidemiologists, geneticists, sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists, health economists, public health physicians, medical ethicists, computational biologists, neuroscientists, and various community-based physicians and nurses. We are keen to attract graduates from all these disciplines to carry out postgraduate research. In the 2017 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey, 90 per cent of our students were satisfied with their postgraduate experience. Ratings for quality of supervision, resources, research culture, progress assessment, research skills training and professional development all exceeded sector averages.

Entry Requirements

An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) or a master's degree in a subject relevant for the proposed research.

Student Destinations

Most of our final-year research students express a wish to continue in the field of research. The vast majority of recent PhD graduates now work in the academic sector, with many others working in the health and private sectors. In addition to excellent research training, our students develop a range of transferable skills to ensure they have the best possible opportunities whatever their chosen career.
