Program description

Medical Genomics - MSc (Full-time)

Our Medical Genomics MSc course will bring you up to speed with the post-genomic era following the game-changing breakthrough that is the sequencing of the human genome. The data now being generated is producing insights at an amazing rate, and personalised medicine is just around the corner. Skilled and talented biologists capable of analysing, processing and innovating are in growing demand by employers. If you're a science graduate who wants to specialise and gain employment in this area, then you can be part of the new golden age in medical genomics with this master's degree.

On this course, you’ll enhance your knowledge of genomic science from a health perspective. As genetic testing becomes part of routine medical evaluations and more geneticists are needed to perform the tests, we can help develop your skills through unique research projects, outstanding teaching and high-quality facilities.
