Cynnwys y Cwrs

The MPhil is available for full time (2 year) or part time (4 year) study on-campus or via distance learning from within the UK or internationally. The course requires the student to undertake a substantial piece of independent research at the cutting edge of health economics and medicines evaluation.

Research Thesis

Students will be able to choose a topic that suits their professional or organisational goals linked to the following broad categories supported by CHEME:

  • Pharmacoeconomics
    • Cost effectiveness analysis of medicines, pharmacogenetics, pharmaceutical services
    • Pharmaceutical policy
    • Methods of economic evaluation and health technology assessment
  • Public Health Economics
    • Valuing nature, public health and the circular economy
    • Behavioural economics, public health and health policy
    • Application of cost benefit analysis and social return on investment analysis in public health

Teaching, Learning and Assessment

The assessment will focus on the completion of a thesis consisting of up to 60, 000 word that will require a viva voce. The thesis may be completed as either a substantive narrative or ‘three-paper’ format. The ‘narrative model’ presents a traditional format of chaptered thesis which reflects the selected approach broadly consisting of an introduction, literature review, methodology, study design, findings or results, synthesis and discussion chapters. The ‘three-paper’ format consists of a thesis organised around three distinct elements that represent prospective or submitted papers for journals with additional introductory and discussion chapters.

Sut i Ymgeisio

Cyngor ar wneud cais

Mae ceisiadau ar gyfer graddau ymchwil yn wahanol i geisiadau am gyrsiau ôl-radd trwy ddysgu fel gradd Feistr. Er bod y ffurflen gais yr un ffurflen, mae’r ffordd y dylech fynd ati i wneud cais yn gwneud gwahaniaeth.

Gwneud cais ar gyfer PhD/Mphil wedi ei ariannu’n allanol neu gennych chi eich hun

Fel gydag ein holl gyrsiau, gallwch ariannu cwrs PhD/Mphil ym Mangor eich hun, neu efallai fod gennych gymorth ariannol allanol (er enghraifft gan eich cyflogwr neu gan y cynulliad), ac rydym yn croesawu pob cais am wneud hynny. Er hynny, yn hytrach na chwblhau ffurflen gais yn unig, gallwch gymryd camau syml er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr fod eich cais yn sefyll allan ac yn fwy tebygol o fod yn llwyddiannus.

Mae pob myfyriwr PhD/Mphil angen goruchwyliaeth gan o leiaf un aelod o staff y Brifysgol, ac os ydych yn ystyried PhD/Mphil mae gennych eisoes syniad o’r pwnc neu’r maes yr ydym am astudio ynddo. I wneud yn siŵr fod gan y Brifysgol arbenigedd yn y maes er mwyn darparu goruchwyliaeth, edrychwch yn gyntaf ar ein tudalennau staff.

Unwaith yr ydych wedi dod o hyd i aelod o staff sydd yn gwneud gwaith ymchwil yn y maes, gallwch gysylltu â hwy yn uniongyrchol gyda chrynodeb o’ch ymchwil sy’n amlinellu eich cais a gofynnwch a ydynt yn fodlon i oruchwylio eich project. Os yw’r aelod o staff academaidd yn dangos diddordeb, gallwch drafod ymhellach i ddatblygu cynnig ymchwil PhD/Mphil llawn.

Ar yr adeg yma, dylech wneud cais am y rhaglen PhD/Mphil gan ddefnyddio'r ffurflen sydd ar gael yma. Dylech gwblhau’r ffurflen yn llawn gan gynnwys cyfeirnodau academaidd, eich cais ymchwil ac enw’r aelod o staff academaidd sydd am eich goruchwylio.

Ymgeisio am ysgoloriaethau PhD a hysbysebir gan Brifysgol Bangor

Eich cynnig ymchwil

Mae cynnig ymchwil da yn hanfodol os ydych yn ymgeisio am PhD neu MPhil. Dylai’r cynnig gynnwys:

(i) Trosolwg - rhowch fraslun o'r maes pwnc yr ydych am ymchwilio iddo, a rhoddwch wybodaeth am y dadleuon damcaniaethol, polisi ac empirig y byddwch yn ymdrin â hwy.
(ii) Cynllunio – rhaid i chi ddangos eich bod yn ymwybodol o amserlenni ymchwil, a bod gennych gynllun i reoli'ch gwaith. Rhaid i chi ddangos ei bod yn bosib cyflawni'r ymchwil yn yr amser sydd ar gael.
(iii) Cyfeiriadau llenyddol – rhaid i chi ddangos nad yw'ch maes ymchwil arfaethedig wedi'i astudio o'r blaen. Rhowch gyfeiriadau at erthyglau a thestunau llenyddol sy'n berthnasol i'ch maes astudio chi.
(iv) Methodoleg – rhaid i chi ddangos eich bod yn ymwybodol o'r offer methodolegol sydd ar gael, a nodi pa rai fyddai'n addas i'ch ymchwil chi.
