Students on the programme come from a variety of countries and background; all have an interest in reproduction, infertility and development or wish to pursue careers in these areas. The vast majority of our clinician students on the Master's degree follow the programme for training purposes - for progression and promotion in their chosen discipline, or as a foundation qualification allowing them to specialise in IVF and infertility or obstetrics and gynaecology.
Our clinical graduates use their knowledge and skills to gain research skills to aid publication, develop their medical practices and enhance their expertise in reproductive medicine. Our science graduates have used this Master's degree as a springboard into non-clinical or clinical research, including PhD studentships, or for clinical/diagnostic positions, such as clinical embryology.
The way the course is structured means that both part-time and full-time students all study together and there is a nice balance between practical sessions and lectures.
The department is a really supportive environment. Staff go out of their way to help you and answer your questions, whether they are study related or about life at the University.
An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in either medicine, a biological or related science, nursing or midwifery. Basic computer skills including word-processing and email. Computer with internet access (preferably broadband) for the duration of the programme. All students will need to provide evidence of Hepatitis B immunity if they wish to perform laboratory practicals. A blood test showing antibody levels to the Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAb) of >10 IU/L will fulfil this requirement.
