Hi everyone,I am an overseas intercalating medical student about to commence MRes in Epidemiology. I noticed that the MRes is relatively less busy compared to medical school as per testimonies of past medical students upon completing their MRes. So I was really pursuing the idea of doing a secondary degree in a field I am interested in at the PGCert level. Since the course will be distance learning, I would expect that there wouldn’t be much clash between doing both an In-Person MRes and an Online PGCert. The course would also be related to what I plan on doing in MRes, so they will most likely complement each other at the end of the day. There’s this one program I’ve been eyeing that gives out full tuition fee waivers for selected students in their PGCert, so I wouldn’t necessarily be spending more £££ for the additional load by taking up a certificate.
Would this be manageable or should I look the other way? Any one with experience or comments are welcome to pitch in. Thanks!
