MSc News

All the latest news on the MSc front.



We are committed to offering a high-quality experience to all our students. We are working to minimise the impact of COVID-19, but we have reluctantly decided that we will be unable to offer this programme for entry in 2020.
Following the suspension of the programme in 2020-2021, we are pleased to confirm that the MSc by Research in Reproductive Sciences will be running again in the 2021-22 academic year.  Although we hope to be able to offer laboratory-based projects by the start of the programme in September 2021, the possibility remains that we may be restricted to “dry” non-lab-based projects that can be carried out remotely. This will depend on Government and University policy regarding the Covid-19 pandemic at the start of the Autumn semester.


Q&A Sessions: Preparing for the 2021-2022 Academic Year.

Online sessions for campus-based new starts in 2021 and will cover relevant topics to find out about studying at the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine (CMVM), University of Edinburgh.
