Birkbeck, University of London
This postgraduate course is an excellent introduction to protein crystallography. It is designed for those who are interested in pursuing a career in this exciting and rapidly expanding field, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, or for those who would like to expand and update their existing scientific knowledge. Up-to-date descriptions of the background, methods and techniques of protein crystallography are explained, and the programme gives the biologically orientated scientist a mainly non-mathematical insight into how protein crystal structures are determined and how results should be judged.
Postgraduate Certificate - PgCert: Degree in science, computing or mathematics, or equivalent qualification, or relevant work experience. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.

1 written paper, which may be taken at an examination centre close to you, and coursework.
A limited number of scholarships for the MSc Structural Molecular Biology from the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the United Kingdom may be available; applicants should note that this programme may be taken as a stand-alone Postgraduate Certificate or as part of an MSc Structural Molecular Biology (to gain the MSc students must earn 180 credits, part of which will involve an independent project; 60 credits are earned on completion of the Postgraduate Certificate and these can contribute towards the MSc credits).
