Course content

The MSc in Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy is a one-year taught postgraduate programme offered by the School of Simulation and Visualisation at The Glasgow School of Art in collaboration with the Laboratory of Human Anatomy, University of Glasgow.

The course presents a unique opportunity to combine actual cadaveric dissection with 3D digital reconstruction, interaction and visualisation using state of the art virtual reality facilities. It allows students to examine human anatomy, and to reconstruct it in a real-time 3D environment for use in education, simulation, and training. This Masters programme provides an ideal opportunity for enhancement of research into human anatomy, diagnostics, simulation, and visualisation, and is accredited by the Institute of Medical Illustrators.

Programme Structure:

The MSc Medical Visualisation & Human Anatomy programme is delivered over one year (45 weeks) in 3 Stages. Students undertaking the programme will split their time equally between the University of Glasgow and the Glasgow School of Art. The programme is delivered as two core areas - digital technologies applied to medical visualisation (delivered by the School of Simulation and Visualisation in Stage 1) and human anatomy (delivered by the Laboratory of Human Anatomy in Stage 2). In Stage 3, students work towards a large-scale self-directed final project, supported by supervisors from both DDS and GU.

Stage 1

3D modelling and animation
Applications in medical visualisation
Volumetric visualisation
Core research skills for postgraduates

Stage 2

Introduction to anatomy

Stage 3

MSc Research Project

Part time study is also available. Please see the Part Time Study Guide for more information.

Scholarships and Funded Places:

A range of scholarships are available which cover partial or full fees. More information can be found here.

Entry requirements:

You should have a good Honours degree or equivalent in any of the following disciplines:

• Life sciences, medical or biomedical science, e.g. anatomy, physiology, dentistry or dental technology, forensic anthropology, molecular biological degrees and the allied health professionals
• Computer science, 3D visualisation, computer graphics, health informatics, mathematics, and physics
• Medical illustration, 3D design, product design, digital media, digital arts, 3D modeling and animation
• or equivalent professional practice

High calibre graduates from other disciplines may be considered if they are able to demonstrate an interest and ability in the field of medical visualisation.
