Group Project (20% of MSc award)
This innovative learning approach allows the students to apply the knowledge and skills gained during the taught course to prepare a substantial dossier of required documentation for a clinical research programme. The student will need to be able to do this as a member of a team, contributing to the overall project and taking responsibility for a particular area.
Individual Project (40% of MSc award)
A four month personal research project undertaken in industry or academia to allow each student to demonstrate their independent learning ability and interest in advancing their knowledge through the pursuit of independent research and/or development work in an area related to clinical research. The research project is undertaken either in a pharmaceutical company, CRO, clinical research site, hospital or an academic facility. During the research project you will be supported by your ICRI tutor to help you through the critical months establishing yourself as a clinical research professional.
