This course enables you to study cutting edge molecular methods employed for the understanding of molecular mechanisms of diseases and for their diagnosis and treatment. Your studies will be underpinned by essential knowledge in genetics, cell signalling and molecular medicine.
You will be offered the flexibility to select option modules that reflect your own interest in molecular biology and these will be combined with core modules and an independent research project.
The course is suitable for newly qualified graduates, those employed in related work and those with medical qualifications.
The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course. For more details on course structure and modules, and how you will be taught and assessed, see the full course document on the masters website.
- Molecular and Cellular Therapeutics
- Molecular Science and Diagnostics
- Principles of Molecular Medicine
- Postgraduate Research Methods
- Postgraduate Project
- Cell Signalling and Genetics
- Extended Postgraduate Project
- Molecular Bioinformatics
- Systems Biology
You must have at least a BSc Honours in Biomedical Sciences or a closely related subject, a professional qualification of equivalent status and associated work experience or an equivalent qualification deemed suitable by the course team. If you are applying for part-time study, you may be working in a relevant area and in which case you will require written support from your employer including confirmation that facilities will be available in your workplace for you to carry out your research project. For those not employed in related areas or for whom a work-based project is not available we can provide projects at the University.
If your first language is not English you should have an IELTS score of at least 6.5, with 6.0 in each element. During the induction stage of the course, if you do not have English as your first language, you will need to complete Academic English screening and any resulting recommended Academic English support activity.
You will develop a range of course-specific and transferable skills that will enhance your employment prospects, career progression and research opportunities in the UK and/ or overseas. It is anticipated that a significant number of graduates will go on to pursue a career in research after registering for a higher degree. Others will seek employment in healthcare laboratories, industry, research laboratories, government laboratories or academia in the UK or worldwide. One of the strengths of this degree is the mixture of backgrounds/ experience and career aspirations of the students recruited.
