The Cancer Biology course provides you with an understanding of:
the disease processes involved in malignancy; and
the scientific rationale for therapeutic options.
It links your academic knowledge to practical applications, particularly in relation to modern diagnostic methods.
The MSc research project gives you the chance to study an area of interest in greater depth and gain valuable research skills. You can carry it out with one of our life science research groups (read more in the Research areas section) or in your place of work if you are a part-time student. Our students often find this an excellent selling point when looking for a job or promotion.
The taught modules aim to prepare you for the job market. Alongside your academic studies, you gain skills in:
problem solving and organisation;
data collation, review and synopsis;
communication (oral, written and electronic);
co-operation and teamwork.
We regularly review our courses to make sure they remain up to date and that you graduate as a marketable industry professional.
We offer flexible timetables and part-time options to help you fit your studies around other commitments.
