Take advantage of one of our 100 Master’s Scholarships to study Nanomedicine at Swansea University
, the Times Good University Guide’s Welsh University of the Year 2017. Postgraduate loans are also available to English and Welsh domiciled students. For more information on fees and funding please visit our website.
Recent years have witnessed an unprecedented growth in research in the area of nanoscience. There is increasing optimism that nanotechnology applied to medicine will bring significant advances in the diagnosis treatment and prevention of disease. Increasing demand and awareness of applications of nanotechnology in medicine has resulted in the emergence of a new discipline, namely nanomedicine.
This 12-month course (starts in October) is suitable for graduates with experience in disciplines of biology, life sciences or engineering who wish to develop their understanding of the application of Nanotechnology in healthcare and to undergo training in experimental design and experimental practice in a novel research topic.
Key Features of the Nanomedicine Programme
This innovative programme in Nanomedicine combines a multidisciplinary approach of nanotechnology and medical science that promises to bring significant advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease.
- The opportunity to study specialised modules including Bionanotechnology, Bioinformatics, Diagnostics, Molecular Medicine, Regenerative Medicine, Nanomedicine, and Nanotoxicology , taught by leading researchers in the field
- Develop research skills by working with an interdisciplinary research team
- Use state-of-the art laboratory equipment in the Centre for NanoHealth
- Engage with clinicians through established links with local hospitals and Health Board
Carry out collaborative research with Industry, including hi-tech medical device companies based in the College of Medicine‘s Institute of Life Science.
The Nanomedicine programme is modular and structured in three levels, each building on the next. You can elect to take either the full Master's programme or the Postgraduate Certificate or Diploma, depending on need and circumstances.
The programme is designed to allow you to complete either as full time or part time study. For part-time students, each of the three components are scheduled to take a year each to complete.
The Nanomedicine programme will give you generic evidence based practice training with additional modules exploring:
Principles of Nanomedicine
Diagnostics and Imaging
Physiology and Disease
Nanomedicines and Therapeutics
Research Design and Ethics
The Medical School offers the following M Level modules as standalone opportunities for prospective students to undertake continued professional development (CPD) in the area of Nanomedicine.
You can enroll on the individual modules for this programme as either an Associate Student (who will be required to complete the module(s) assessments) or as a Non-Associate Student (who can attend all teaching sessions but will not be required to complete any assessments).
