Where you'll research

Your faculty

The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.

We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.

We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.

Entry requirements

Main

All of our MD (Res) students must hold an undergraduate medical qualification and must be eligible to register with the General Medical Council (GMC). If you want to undertake hands-on clinical research you must be registered with the GMC. Applicants are normally clinicians undertaking research associated with their employment. 

Typically you’ll be a medical graduate at ST level. However, we do welcome applications from any medical doctor, including consultants, at any stage of their training and career.

You must be able to devote a substantial amount of time to research. This may mean taking time out from your clinical obligations to do a piece of full-time research, and then devoting further study leave during clinical training to complete the work.
