Course content

One in three individuals will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and it therefore represents a leading cause of mortality globally. Researchers and clinicians with expertise in this area are therefore in high demand. This MSc has been designed to help meet this demand by providing graduates with an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the causes and treatment of cancer from bench-to-bedside. Designed in close collaboration with clinicians and research specialists, this programme takes both a theoretical and practical approach to ensure it provides graduates with the specialist knowledge and skills required to pursue an academic career in cancer research as well as moving into the more applied fields of cancer treatments or hospital pathology. This MSc is studied full-time over one year, starting in September, and comprises two semesters of structured taught modules followed by an individual research project.
