Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The study of medical genetics is an exciting and fast-moving field that is making an enormous impact on medicine, helping us to understand, diagnose, and treat many human diseases that have a genetic component.

The 4 year MSci is an advanced undergraduate degree, adding a further research-focused year to a 3 year BSc. This will give you an in-depth knowledge of the fundamental building blocks of all life on earth. The MSci programme follows our BSc in Medical Genetics course, but offers specialist training in a broad range of laboratory techniques. In the additional year you will develop an extended, research project.

This advanced undergraduate degree will give you an in-depth knowledge of the essential building blocks of human life. You will learn techniques for analysing gene expression, protein interactions, DNA structure and damage, image analysis of biomolecules and cells, and advanced computer analytical methods.

You will develop excellent analytical and project management skills and learn how to design experiments and plan work programmes.
