Description

Advertisement

The School of Medicine conducts a very active and successful academic programme. Most of the teaching takes place on the Hartshill campus, which is ideally located adjacent to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, providing access to workshops, offices and seminar rooms and the all-important direct connection with the full range of clinical activities. Our students and staff members therefore have the opportunity to work directly with nursing and clinical staff. The Guy Hilton Research Centre offers a patient treatment facility alongside state-of-the art equipment for translational research, which includes cell therapy suites, genomic facilities and advanced laser and diagnostic laboratories.

The School embraces specialists working in the University Hospital of North Staffordshire and RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital Oswestry,
covering the key medical and surgical subspecialties. A number of successful interdisciplinary research programmes are being carried out, and the postgraduate culture is very evident and ideally suited to the development and delivery of postgraduate courses.

Grant income is from the Research Councils, the Department of Health and major charities, as well as non-UK based organisations,
including the EU and the NIH (USA). Excellent library and study facilities are available at the Clinical Education Centre and at the University Library on the main campus.

The aims of the courses are to provide multidisciplinary Masters Level postgraduate training in biomedical engineering and cellular engineering. These will involve building on existing undergraduate knowledge in basic sciences and applying it to clinical applications of bioengineering and cell/tissue engineering relevant to the health care environment.

The overall objectives are:

* To provide courses at a postgraduate level leading to professional careers in biomedical engineering and cell/tissue engineering in a wide range of health care establishments such as medical organisations, medical research institutions and NHS Trust hospitals
* To provide an opportunity for in-depth research into specialist and novel areas of biomedical engineering and cell/tissue engineering
* To expose students to practical work in a hospital environment with hands-on knowledge of patient care
* To introduce students to exciting new fields within medical and cell/tissue engineering such as molecular techniques in tissue engineering and novel technologies for physiological monitoring

Contents

These taught Masters courses require satisfactory completion of at least 180 M Level credits, made up of 120 credits from taught
modules (90 credits core and compulsory, 30 credits options) plus a project and dissertation for 60 credits. The module structure is set out below.

Requirements

Students holding a first or second class honours degree in engineering, physical or biological sciences, or other professional qualification acceptable to Keele University, are encouraged to apply.

English Language Requirements

If English is not your first language, we will usually ask you to take one of the internationally recognised English language qualifications for entry to Keele, such as IELTS, Cambridge ESOL Examinations or the TOEFL examination.

The minimum score for entry to most courses is IELTS 6.0 (with at least 5 in each sub-test)

or

TOEFL (paper test 550, computer-based 213 or Internet-based (iB) 79/80 minimum)

or

Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE)

or

Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE)

or

GCSE English Language grade C

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6
CAE score: (read more)

Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever.

60 (Grade C)
TOEFL paper-based test score : 550
TOEFL iBT® test: 80

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.
