Each unique structured Masters of Science (MSc) project is carried out over a minimum of one year and a maximum of two years (full-time).
Within this time you will be guided through your research project with the support of your supervisors and the RCSI School of Postgraduate Studies.
Develop your skills as a researcher at RCSI
You will have a range of resources, research development opportunities and training at your disposal during your structured MSc, including:
- Core and optional modules as part of our Professional Certificate in Research Practices. All MSc scholars are expected to complete Research Ethics and Integrity (PC04) core module as part of their degree.
- Access to the Vitae Researcher Development Framework, which allows you to map your competencies, identify areas for improvement and develop transferable skills
- Dissemination of your research. The perfect starting point for this is our annual Research Day; apply for a poster or oral presentation and practice key presenting and communication skills.
- Dedicated write-up space in our Postgraduate Suite in our new Library.
