An MCh requires candidates to attend and carry out research under appropriate RCSI supervision for a minimum of one year full time. Applications to register are made through the School of Postgraduate Studies.
In order to register for an MCh at RCSI, candidates must have obtained the degrees of MB BCh BAO, and must carry out research over a period of not less than one year.
For award of the degree, a period of at least three years must have elapsed from the time the candidate obtained the above degrees.
Candidates must have an RCSI supervisor with whom they have agreed the topic for their thesis and the logistical details for their candidature, for example start date, location for initial research training and so on.
Candidates pay fees each year until they submit their thesis. All MCh candidates complete a written thesis on their project which is submitted to one external examiner and one internal examiner for examination.
Following the recommendation of the examiners, the MCh degree may be awarded.
