About Reproductive Biology
Masters degrees in Reproductive Biology equip postgraduates with a working knowledge of the reproductive functions of advanced, multicellular organisms (predominantly humans). This can include looking at mating and fertilisation processes, as well as perinatal development and birth processes.
Specialisms and related postgraduate topics include Developmental Biology, Developmental Medicine and Clinical Embryology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Animal Science.
You will explore Reproductive Science at the cellular and molecular levels, from fertilisation right through to birth. Predominantly, you will acquire a working knowledge of genetics and genomics including chromosome theory, as well as advanced understanding of inherited traits and diseases.
This field will provide you with numerous transferrable skills including practices in laboratory techniques such as bioimaging, cell manipulation and chemical analysis, alongside computerised methods such as bioinformatics and 3D modelling.
Courses typically examine Human Reproductive Biology, but some may offer specialisation in Animal Reproductive Biology which would allow you to branch into veterinary practise. Other traditional careers include roles in clinical medicine and public health practise, but you would also be suited to managerial positions within governing bodies, medical research agencies and charities.

This course provides an opportunity for scientists and clinicians to specialise in reproductive and developmental biology. You gain detailed theoretical knowledge of reproductive and developmental biology, while gaining practical skills within a vibrant research environment.
This one-year, full-time MSc by Research programme aims to introduce students to modern up-to-date molecular and cellular biological research in the field of reproductive sciences, reproductive health and reproductive medicine in a stimulating, challenging and vibrant research atmosphere, at the interface between basic science and clinical patient care.
The Course provides the fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to understand and perform novel techniques in the areas of reproductive biology and biomedical research.
This vocational training course is for recent biology, biomedical, biochemistry and medical graduates who want to develop a career in the field of clinical embryology and assisted reproductive technology (ART) and/or the associated reproductive sciences.
This MPhil pathway is designed to give students a basic understanding of major themes and debates in the sociology of reproduction and new reproductive technologies.
This one year, residential, taught M.Sc.
This one-year, full time programme provides an excellent grounding for PhD or other academic study in the Biomedical Sciences. You will learn valuable research skills, biomedical laboratory techniques and a wide range of other transferable skills that will give you an advantage for the rest of your career.
This specialist pathway has been designed for those interested in reproductive endocrinology, fertility, assisted reproductive technology, prenatal development, birth defects, embryogenesis, molecular biology and genetics.
