Academic and Language Requirements

Minimum criteria for eligibility

Students will be expected to have at least a 2:1 Honours degree in the biological sciences (or the equivalent to a 2:1 degree from non-UK universities) or a degree in Medicine or Veterinary Medicine.

Students with a good background in molecular biology, laboratory training and experience in cellular biology will be preferred, though this is not essential, as appropriate laboratory training is given.  Due to current limitations on bench space and personnel, intake to the MSc course is capped at 10 students.
