This is a new, innovative program to educate students from a wide range of backgrounds (from basic scientists to all levels of healthcare professionals) to interpret and understand genomic data that increasingly impacts on service delivery to patients and the community. The programme is flexible and modular and includes full- and part-time MSc options, delivered over one or two years respectively. There are also full-time and part-time Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) or Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) options. In addition, students can select individual modules to study as a short course for CPPD purposes. Our aim is to enhance knowledge and skills in this rapidly evolving, expanding and clinically relevant field by providing a flexible, multi-disciplinary and multi-professional perspective in genomics applied to clinical practice and medical research.
The MSc programme also includes a core research module with opportunities to access the emerging data from the 100,000 Genomes Project through the Genomics England Clinical Interpretation Partnership (GeCIP) training domains. The programme is one of the preferred providers for Health Education England and our course values and upholds the NHS Constitution.
The programme includes collaborations with the Institute for Cancer Research, Buckinghamshire New University and Brunel University London.
The course is flexible and modular and is available as a full- or part-time MSc, delivered over one or two years respectively. There are also full-time and part-time Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) and Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) options.
Full-time students should register for the qualification they wish to exit with, either PG Cert, PG Dip or the MSc. Part-time students should register for the PG Cert in the first instance and may progress to the other awards should they so wish.
Applicants who are funded by HEE will have their fees paid in full. To be eligible for HEE funding, you must be an NHS healthcare professional working in England, with the support of your employing institution. To apply for HEE funding, see the Genomic Education Programme full-time/part-time application guidance.
