Masters courses

Our 12-month masters courses are focussed on understanding human health and disease, unlocking new treatments, improving care and prolonging life. They have been designed to respond to fast-moving areas of research, where there is a growing demand for skilled, multi-disciplinary bioscientists.

Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities and get specialist training from world-class scientists. They are a great way to build on on your existing scientific knowledge and practical skills, to equip you for a career in academia or industry. All of our courses can also lead straight on to a PhD through our PhD with Integrated Masters programme.
