Taught Masters Courses
MSc(Res) in Translational Oncology
Our MSc(Res) programme will give both scientists and clinicians an in-depth understanding of the scientific and clinical challenges pertinent to the management of tissue-specific cancers and offers theoretical and practical training in fundamental aspects of contemporary translational oncology encompassing the cellular and molecular basis of cancer, tumour microenvironment, cancer epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment, cancer technologies and clinical research. The MSc(Res) course provides an innovative and progressive programme with teaching delivered by leading research scientists and clinicians including regular 'Keynote Lectures' by international clinical researchers on the topic of 'bench to bedside' in addition to the main modules. Students also undertake a 25-week individual research project in one of our laboratories to provide first-hand experience and training in hypothesis-driven research.
Molecular Medicine (MSc) - incorporating MSc in Molecular and Genetic Medicine
Through this flexible course, you'll develop an understanding of the underlying molecular and genetic factors in human diseases and their current and potential treatment. You can choose a subject pathway based on your interests.
You'll get experience in planning, carrying out, recording and reporting research. Your project will be hypothesis-driven, laboratory-based research in the field of molecular medicine. Your
skills and expertise in reading, writing and interpreting scientific literature will be useful in a variety of careers. Success in the MSc in Molecular Medicine is a good training for beginning a PhD and many of our students have chosen this route.
MSc in Translational Neuroscience
Students on our MSc programme study a range of modules that provide detailed theory and specific practical skills in translational neuroscience. Students undertake a 20-week individual research project in one of our laboratories to provide first-hand experience and training in hypothesis-driven research.
Human Nutrition (Masters & Postgraduate Diploma)
This course aims to establish a knowledge-base in a range of subdisciplines, from public health nutrition to molecular nutrition. An emphasis is placed on developing research skills.
MMedSci/Postgraduate Diploma (Vision & Strabismus)
A degree by distance learning for qualified orthoptists who wish to study for a higher level qualification.
Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education
This course provides the opportunity for those who work within a medical environment with a developing interest in medical education, to explore the theoretical principles underpinning medical education and consider how this relates to their practice. The aim of the course is to develop medical educators who are informed and understand the core principles and issues in medical education and reflect upon how these principles can be applied within their own teaching practice.
Msc in Reproductive & Developmental Medicine
This MSc course provides training in reproductive and developmental medicine for scientists, clinicians or anyone wishing to pursue an interest in this field. Through the taught modules you’ll develop a solid understanding of reproductive science with relevance to current clinical applications. A breadth of processes will be covered from gonadal development and production of gametes through to pregnancy and parturition - with each module taught by leading scientists and clinicians in their field. Finally, you’ll undertake a research project to develop a depth of knowledge in a specialist topic and become equipped with valuable transferable skills for a range of biological careers.
The course will commence in September 2013.
