Entry requirements

We require an honours degree (minimum Upper Second) or overseas equivalent :

  • biological sciences
  • medical sciences
  • biomedical materials
  • dentistry
  • veterinary medicine
  • pharmacology.

We will only consider a Lower Second degree if you have a master's or comparable research experience in industry.

This course is also available for intercalating medical students, both from the University of Manchester and other UK universities. For intercalating MBChB students, we require satisfactory achievement in Years 1 to 4. You can fail, but you must pass the resit and progress through the course. There should be no failure in the year before intercalation.

Course content

Our MRes Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine course gives students from biological, engineering and/or medical-related backgrounds the specialist knowledge and research skills to pursue a career in this field.

You will focus on strategies to repair, replace and regenerate various tissues and organs to solve major clinical problems, gaining insights into topical issues including stem cells, polymer technology, biomaterial fabrication/characterisation and gene delivery. You will learn how to identify major clinical needs and formulate novel therapeutic solutions.

This course has both taught and research components and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience. You will learn practical skills through two research placements.

Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine as a discipline shows enormous potential for future health and, economically, there is a national demand for specific interdisciplinary training in this area.

We have a vast research network in this field comprising international experts from multiple disciplines and, as such, this course is a collaborative degree from the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health and the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
