Course summary

Cancer poses a significant health and socio-economic burden to society. In this unique degree you will be taught by researchers working at the forefront of basic, translational and clinical cancer research. Knowledge of cancer is widely relevant to careers in biomedical research, health science, allied health professions and the pharmaceutical industry.

Your learning

Teaching is delivered through formal lectures, small tutorials, group and independent work. Year two includes laboratory practicals, and in year three you will undertake a research project and produce a dissertation.

Lectures are both face-to-face and online, which gives you the opportunity to review topics at your own pace. There are also more intensive, creative sessions of tutorial-based problem-solving and learning which take place in small groups.

Assessment

Formative and summative assessment methods include: examinations (some of which are in multiple-choice or short-answer question format); coursework; poster presentations; practical skills assessment (OSPE); and online participation. There is a project dissertation which is produced as part of the research project in year three.

Careers

Graduates will be capable of critical thinking and complex problem-solving and becoming highly skilled scientists. They will have developed excellent verbal and written communication skills. These competencies and this acquired knowledge will equip our graduates to excel in laboratory or clinical research careers, or flourish in other professions where a keen understanding of science and clinical medicine is crucial.

We expect our graduates to be capable of working at the highest levels and have the ability to make a significant contribution within all fields of biomedical sciences, research and associated professions.
