The world is looking for new ways to treat disease and repair damaged organs. Stem cell and regenerative medicine is driving the search. The industry is embracing new technologies. Specialists are in demand.
This course will give you the theoretical background and the skills you need for a career in the field.
You'll learn from leading researchers and hone your skills with a research project of your own, based in our world-famous Centre for Stem Cell Biology.
There are lectures, practical classes, tutorials and seminars. In small groups, you'll discuss, debate and present on scientific and ethical topics. You'll get one-to-one time with staff and training to support your research project.
Between October and May, you'll take modules and work on the literature review for your research project. From June onwards, you will be working full-time on your project.
You're assessed by a combination of exams, coursework, debates, presentations and a dissertation.

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.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
University guides confirm our position as one of the UK's leading universities. The Virgin 2008 Alternative Guide to British Universities, for instance, says that “Sheffield is a top university across the board”.
