In addition you will undertake a dissertation/project.

The MSC (Med Sci) in Cardiovascular Sciences is a 12 month, full time programme. The Programme is made up of five compulsory courses totalling 120 credits plus a Dissertation/Project of 60 credits in order to fulfil the requirements of a Masters degree. The complusory courses are delivered during Semesters 1 and 2 and the Dissertation/Project work is carried out during the summer months.

In addition to the taught components of the Programme, students participate in Topic of the Week sessions. Each week, one or two students will take their turn to prepare and present material for Topic of the Week session. It is intended that each presenter will give an overview of the topic, including a summary of the pharmacological features of the subject, and then lead a discussion among their classmates to the key aspects/controversies of the topic. These sessions are designed to further develop the research, communication and critical appraisal skills of each presenter, and to promote engagement with current issues in pharmocology and medical science amongst the class as a whole.

The programme is open to medical, pharmacy and bioscience graduates. You should have an Honours degree or equivalent in your subject. In exceptional circumstances, other science graduates or bioscience graduates with an Ordinary degree may be eligible, on demonstration of appropriate postgraduate professional experience.
