Course content

Imaging has contributed to some of the most significant advances in biomedicine and healthcare and this trend is accelerating. This MSc, taught by leading scientists and clinicians, will equip imaging students from all science backgrounds with detailed knowledge of the advanced imaging techniques which provide new insights into cellular, molecular and functional processes, preparing them for a PhD or a career in industry.

UCL offers a world-class environment in medical imaging and hosts several medical and biomedical imaging centres of excellence.

This MSc is run by the UCL Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging, one of the world’s most advanced imaging centres. With 11 state-of-the-art imaging technologies, it is dedicated to developing the imaging techniques of the future. Biomedical imaging is an interdisciplinary field drawing together biology, medicine, physics and engineering. It is a rapidly expanding field central to all aspects of biomedical research.

The MSc is linked to University College London Hospitals (UCLH), including Great Ormond Street Hospital, the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre and National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. This will provide an ideal training for further research and applications for a PhD at UCL's Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging.
