Translational Medicine - ageing, immunology, diabetes, regenerative medicine, telehealth and healthcare operations management.
Food Security and Environment - food quality, plant science, nutrition, agriculture and soil science, water, air and building research.
Operating at the leading-edge of research and development continually informs our suite of teaching programmes, ensuring they meet the future requirements of employers and students.
Our taught MSc programmes comprise a maximum ten taught modules delivered by university academics and visiting industry experts, followed by a four-five month research project and thesis - often industry-based, providing students with the opportunity to make contact with prospective employers before even completing their degree. Some MSc programmes also comprise a three month group project or integrating portfolio. The practical nature of our MSc programmes enable students to apply the knowledge gained from taught elements of the course and also develop transferable skills including communication, presentation and project management.
