Student publications based on Research Projects and Research Placements

The MSc provides teaching in conducting excellent quality research

Students are encouraged to explore their academic interests and many students will publish a paper as a result of their work during the course. Research work has impact not only in terms of publication in peer-reviewed journals but can also have an impact in application of research findings to clinical work or in dissemination to a wider audience. Below we highlight some examples of some of the wider publicity surrounding MSc research projects.
