Entry requirements

Applications are accepted all year round, but there are limited places to ensure high-quality training, so please apply early to avoid disappointment. At a minimum, students are required to have an undergraduate degree in science or medicine from a recognised academic institution. Students are required to submit a statement of purpose with their application. International applicants Students from outside of the UK help form a global community here at Queen Mary. For detailed country specific entry requirements please visit the International section of our website. If English is not a student's first language, they will be required to meet the following standards in one of these English language examinations: Examination Academic Level Required IELTS 6.5 TOEFL 580 IBTOEFL 92 PTE Academic 68 If you do not meet language or scholarly requirements it might be possible for you to undertake foundation or pre-sessional programmes that will prepare you for the masters programme.

Course content

Regenerative medicine is an interdisciplinary field, which aims to repair diseased or damaged tissues using biological or cell-based technologies. It is a rapidly growing area of biomedical research that encompasses stem cell biology, tissue engineering, drug delivery, and nanotechnology. Launching in 2014, this new MSc course aims to provide the next generation of scientists and medical professionals with the skills and knowledge required for successful careers in regenerative medicine. The multi-disciplinary programme is based within Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and delivered jointly with the School of Engineering and Materials Science.

Taught modules will develop a strong scientific foundation in the biology of stem cells and regeneration and the fundamental principles of biomaterials, tissue engineering and cellular reprogramming. The course then will explore how these concepts can be applied in academic and industrial settings, towards the development of novel regenerative technologies and the treatment of disease. Students will also receive practical training in research methods, translation and commercialisation, and ethics.

The MSc course will culminate with an intensive research project where students will have the opportunity to put the concepts learned in the taught modules into practice, working within internationally-renowned research teams and state-of-the-art laboratories. In addition to technical experience, the research project will include training in experimental design, effective collaboration, data analysis, and presentation skills.

Upon completion of the MSc in Regenerative Medicine, students will be well placed for further training at the PhD level or professional careers in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. As a multi-disciplinary course, the MSc is appropriate for a wide range of students. Graduates with degrees in biological sciences or medicine will gain an in-depth understanding of the cellular and molecular aspects of regenerative medicine as well as an introduction to the interdisciplinary fields of biomaterials and tissue engineering. Similarly, students with a physical sciences background will have the opportunity to broaden their experiences and acquire new skills in the biological sciences.
