Course content

Cancer is a subject that embraces an ever-widening range of disciplines. The MSc Oncology is suitable both for scientists and other graduates who wish to learn more about the science as well as the practice of oncology, and for clinicians together with other health care professionals who require further training in the molecular aspects of oncology.

The course aims to:

Provide formal training for basic scientists and clinicians in the theoretical and practical aspects of the causes and treatment of cancer.
Through the project and dissertation, familiarise you with the research environment, and enable you to develop the skills necessary to undertake independent research.
The MSc Oncology draws on a unique blend of scientific and clinical expertise and experience, and benefits from strong ties that exist between the clinic and laboratory within the Department of Oncology.
