The course content of this MSc programme comprises five core modules; advanced bio-analytical techniques, ethics, leadership, research methods and research project modules. Additionally, there are four 15-credit specialised cancer modules, covering cancer diagnosis and treatment.
The specialised modules are arranged as follows: you will take two modules in Term 1, which will provide you with the basic concepts of cancer, biomarkers, and general principles of cancer diagnosis and management and haemato-oncology. Then you will progress to Term 2 with a further exposure to the advanced knowledge and techniques in cancer diagnostic theories and laboratory practices along with drug delivery systems using nanotechnology. Finally, the research project that takes place in Term 3 will be based around the theme of cancer and your supervisor will be drawn from the University’s research active staff with the appropriate expertise in cancer research.
