Anne Burns
Masters study type: Part time

The MSc in Genetic Counselling aims to:

- provide academic and vocational training for professional genetic counsellors to work in the UK and overseas

- equip students with the necessary skills to enable them to contribute to the research and development of the profession

- promote awareness of the importance of the psychosocial impact of human genetic technology among patients, health and social care professionals and the wider society.

The programme has links with the graduate programme in genetic counselling at the Murdoch Institute in Melbourne, Australia, and there are opportunities for student exchanges between the two programmes.

The course has 3 components. Taught modules are scheduled on two days a week, and placements and research carried out on other days.

- Taught course modules (120 credits)
- Research dissertation (60 credits)
- Placements

Graduates of the MSc in Genetic Counselling Programme fulfil the entry level criteria for UK professional registration as a Genetic Counsellor, and would usually be eligible to apply for registration after a further two years of employment as a Genetic Counsellor in the UK.

Graduates are also eligible to apply for US Genetic Counselor certification through the American Board of Genetic Counselors' International Genetic Counselor Certification Eligibility Programme.

Students are assessed via coursework, written examinations, research dissertation and clinical assessment.

The majority of graduates go on to work as genetic counsellors in NHS Regional Genetic Services. Other graduates work as genetic counsellors in other countries including Ireland, Canada and USA. Some students have gone on to research posts (including PhD studentships) particularly in psychosocial genetic counselling research, and in education and public engagement in genetics.
