The MD(Res) degree is also awarded on the basis of a research thesis and the minimum length of registration is 2 years of full-time or part-time study.

Suitable subjects for an MD(Res) thesis are available in most academic units.

UCL’s MD(Res) regulations permit medical graduates from other universities to register for these higher medical degrees subject to certain conditions.

Arrangements similar to those for MPhil/PhD apply to those registering for MD(Res) degrees.

Progress is reviewed annually in the same way as for MPhil/PhD students and continuing registration is dependent upon satisfactory progress.
