Study type Taught

Summary

This research-based course has a taught component that is the same as an MSc. It provides a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research.

The course is designed for graduates with a BSc in the life sciences or other science disciplines, and for intercalating and fully qualified MBBS or BDS students. It can be taken either as a stand-alone qualification or as an entry route onto a PhD or MD.

The taught component of the course includes subject-specific content in the area of stem cells and regenerative medicine. You have the flexibility to develop your own bespoke course by selecting additional, complementary modules. You will also participate in training in general research principles, and other professional and key skills.

The subject-based modules focus on interdisciplinary research that seeks to convert stem cell research and technologies into cost-effective, ethically robust 21st century health solutions that will ameliorate degenerative diseases, the effects of ageing and serious injury. This strand is delivered jointly with Durham University, with project opportunities in both universities.

Your research project comprises the major element of the course. This project will involve 24 weeks of research in an area of stem cells and regenerative medicine under the supervision of an expert academic researcher in the field.

The course allows you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry.
