Genomic Medicine

The course begins with a brief revision of DNA, genes and genetics and updates these concepts to the scale of contemporary, whole-genome information. It will introduce to you the technologies for generating genome-wide data, and how the resulting vast quantities of data can be approached and interrogated to generate meaningful information that can be useful for families affected by inherited conditions, or for patients with acquired diseases including cancer and infections.

Entry requirements

A minimum of GCSE grade C in maths and English and evidence of English proficiency from all applicants whose 1st language is not English (e.g. IELTS Level 7.0 with no less than 6.5 in any band). Applicants for the MSc (Genomic Medicine) without prior relevant experience working in healthcare should have a good Honours degree (or equivalent), in a relevant subject (e.g. biomedical science or medicine). Applicants with alternative academic qualifications are welcome, on the basis of professional qualifications and experience within the NHS (or other relevant organisations). The University considers a candidate's skills, attributes, motivation and potential for success when making an offer.
