MSc by Research in Reproductive Sciences

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. While we anticipate that the programme will run as described in 2021, restrictions currently in place at the Edinburgh Bioquarter as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic may extend to the 2021-2022 academic year. Arrangements will need to be reconsidered if restrictions affect this programme's structure. We will communicate detailed information on this to applicants if necessary.
