Course content

Designed in close collaboration with an international team of clinicians and research specialists, this focused MSc provides an understanding of the causes and treatment of cancer from 'bench-to-bedside'. You study both theory and practice to gain the specialist knowledge and skills required to pursue an academic career in cancer research or move into the more applied fields of cancer treatment, hospital pathology or industry.

The University has an international reputation for medical research and places a strong emphasis on cancer. This MSc is taught by a team of cancer research-focused staff from the School with internal and external expert guest lectures and seminars. We enjoy close collaborative links with NHS clinicians, clinical researchers and oncology staff who also deliver aspects of the programme.

Students are immersed in an excellent research environment and infrastructure, specifically the recently completed £6 million, state-of-the-art, cancer research facility housed in the Allam Building. The University has invested in preclinical optical and radiological imaging and radiotherapy research. Students engage in research in cutting edge facilities employing these and other technologies used for the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer, both on campus and within the Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital.
