Description

Regenerative Medicine includes a range of pharmaceutical related approaches, where small molecules and biologicals are used to stimulate the bodys innate repair systems, as well as the use of cell based therapies, and bioactive scaffolds. The production of these new medicines and devices involves a chain of important stages in development, including laboratory based invention, preclinical testing, navigation of intellectual property issues and compliance with a range of regulatory requirements. It is a vibrant area of endeavour involving multidisciplinary interactions and strong employment opportunities for those trained in the field.

The MSc Regenerative Medicine will provide students with a multidisciplinary approach to gaining a critical knowledge and training in the biological and chemical basis of tissue regeneration, stem cell biology; as well as knowledge of the basics of intellectual property law, regulatory affairs, ethical issues, all of which are key components of the global regenerative medicine industry. It is a vibrant area of endeavour involving multidisciplinary interactions and strong employment opportunities for those trained in the field.

Ultimately, the course aims to produce postgraduates capable of making a significant contribution within the regenerative medicine industry. Graduates will be well placed to secure jobs in academic research however the transferable skills developed during the course will equip graduates for a wide range of careers outside the laboratory for example within biotechnology business. Additionally, the course prepares students for higher level study such PhD level study.

Duration: It is anticipated that the taught modules would be delivered over two days per week for one year for full-time students providing flexible learning time for structured independent study.

Part-time students would be expected to complete the course over a two year period with the taught component comprising one day per week.

This course begins in January and September.

Contents

The delivery of the course comprises a mixture of structured taught modules and self directed study and literature reviews. The programme culminates with a research project dissertation aligned to the ongoing research at UCS in cell therapies, regenerative medicine and healthy ageing within the new Biotechnology Research Unit. This provides students with the opportunity to fully engage with contemporary research in the field.

The curriculum covers a range of important topics from stem cell biology and applications in medicine, to the use of small molecules and biologicals in tissue engineering. The course also investigates the ethical and regulatory landscape involved in the translation of these novel therapies from bench to bedside.

Modules studied in the MSc Regenerative Medicine:

* Stem Cell Biology and Applications in Medicine
* Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering
* Biotechnology and Business Development
* Research Methods and Funding
* Molecular and Cellular Basis of Ageing
* Research Project Dissertation

Requirements

Entry requirements: We welcome applications from graduates with a 2:2 minimum classification (or equivalent) from their undergraduate degree. It would be expected that in most cases applicants should hold (or by the time of commencement of the course hold) a first degree in an appropriate subject such as those recognised as bioscience based courses by QAA for example biology, bioscience, nutrition, exercise science, human biology, health sciences, health promotion, cell biology and biotechnology.

Those with an interest in the course possessing a non-bioscience based degree are asked to contact the course leader below for guidance prior to application.

International students are welcome to apply, the minimum English requirement is the British Council International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) minimum score 7.0

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 7

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) 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.

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

Funding

UCS Bursary 2013 Entry

From September 2013, UCS is introducing a new bursary scheme for students living away from the parental home, to help with accommodation costs while studying.

Successful applicants will receive a £1,000 bursary in their first year of study and a £500 bursary in both their second and third years of study.

National Scholarship Programme

The National Scholarship Programme (NSP) has been created to offer support to students from lower income backgrounds. The Government has awarded a number of Scholarships to UCS for students starting an undergraduate degree in September 2013. UCS has committed to matching these Scholarships, providing fee waivers to a larger number of students.

Successful full-time applicants will receive a total fee waiver of £6,000; £3,000 in their first year of study and £3,000 in their second year of study.

Successful part-time applicants will receive a fee waiver on a pro rata basis for their first and second years of study. For example part-time students studying 50% of the full time equivalent course in their first year will receive a fee waiver of £1,500.

Suffolk Access Champion Scheme

The Suffolk Access Champion Scheme is open to students who have studied in Suffolk and are applying to study a full-time undergraduate degree programme at UCS in 2013/14.

Successful applicants will become Suffolk Access Champions and will work over two years mentoring Year 10 and 11 students to encourage progression on to higher education.

In return for their participation in the scheme, Access Champions will receive a total fee waiver of £8,000; £5,000 in their first year of study and £3,000 in their second year of study.

UCS Science Fee Waiver

UCS is introducing a new Science fee waiver for students starting one of the four year science programmes in 2013. This scheme entitles successful applicants to a fee waiver of up to £1,500 across years two and three of their degree.

Ipswich Borough Council and UCS Bursary

Ipswich Borough Council (IBC) is working in conjunction with UCS to offer a non-repayable bursary scheme to selected full and part-time students from lower income backgrounds to help with costs associated with their course of study.

A total of four IBC and UCS bursaries are available in 2013/14. Successful applicants will receive £1,000 in their first year of study. Awards are expected to continue into Year 2 of study on the condition that household income remains within the scheme threshold
