The programme takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of diabetes, allowing the integration of key discipline areas in the understanding of the biology of the disease, its diagnosis and the understanding of the complications of diabetes, their prevention and management.
It emphasises the importance of research and development in the subject area and exposes you to the latest advances in the understanding of health and disease, equipping you with the competencies to take part in active research.

The programme is aimed at medical doctors and allied health professionals who want to improve their knowledge of diabetes care and management. It will be of particular interest to overseas students for whom this specialist field of study is often not available in their country of origin. The programme runs as a one year, full-time modularised programme. The MSc dissertation / research project during trimester C forms part of the course and aims to develop students research skills, scientific writing skills and consolidate their knowledge base in diabetes care and management.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
