To take into account

· What are the objectives of this course?

The course aims to enable understudies to: Demonstrate in depth knowledge and understanding of human genome structure and organisation and the molecular regulation mechanisms of gene expression Demonstrate in depth knowledge and understanding of the roles of molecular genetics in cellular homeostasis, cellular differentiation and development of 'genetic' human diseases Demonstrate in depth knowledge and understanding of the application of molecular genetics in clinical disease diagnosis and prognosis

· Who is it intended for?

Successful graduates from the Medical Molecular Biology with Genetics MSc will have developed subject specific theoretical knowledge, practical laboratory experience and a set of transferable skills required to independently adapt and optimize scientific methodologies, critically interpret and evaluate self generated and published scientific literature and data and undertake a predominantly self reliant approach to laboratory based work, study and research. These skill sets will greatly facilitate progression onto PhD level studies in medical molecular research or employment in molecular diagnostics/medical sciences industries.

· Requirements

English language: IELTS level of 6.0 (or equivalent) with no single element lower than 5.5. Academic: qualification equivalent to a UK 2(ii) BSc degree in a relevant subject area; e.g. molecular biology, biology, biochemistry, medical sciences or Biomedical sciences.
