Course summary


Practice in the clinical professions will be transformed by genomic technologies and information within the next decade.

Our innovative fully online programme can be studied either as individual modules or as a Postgraduate Certificate PgCert in Genomic Medicine. This online programme has been developed from our successful and well-established MSc Genomic Medicine, as part of the ambitious 100,000 Genomes Project. There is also the flexibility to combine modules from the traditional MSc with this fully online version.

These options for online study are designed to equip you with the skills to succeed in a wide variety of contexts. The modules offer a rich curriculum examining theory, research, policy and practice in the field of genomic medicine, and provide a unique student experience, where you will gain an insight into applying genomic medicine for patient benefit.

How you’ll learn

You will learn from world-leading experts in genomics and from the outset you will be encouraged to become an independent and self-motivated learner. You’ll be learning through an exciting mixture of video, animations, quizzes, tasks and webinars you will be supported by the module lead, a personal tutor, peer discussion forums and you will have full support from allocated module-specific tutors.


The course is especially designed for healthcare professionals across the world, to improve their capabilities, their ability to work across international healthcare systems and within healthcare related industry and to support career progression.

Students who are not healthcare professionals would acquire knowledge, understanding and skills that should help them gain employment or PhD positions especially in the expanding fields of genomics, bioinformatics, or other medically-related research and development in either academia, pharmaceutical or biotech industries.
