University of East London
The programme aims to produce postgraduate students with a sound knowledge of both practical and theoretical aspects of the specialist area of toxicology and the necessary skills to undertake individual and collaborative research in this field; it has been designed for students wishing to make a career in the pharmaceutical industry, medical and academic, forensic science or any field where a knowledge of toxicology is desirable; it offers a mix of traditional toxicology with an introduction to the cutting edge of research at the molecular level; the focus of the programme is not simply on the state of current knowledge but also the methodology used in obtaining that knowledge, making use of recent research papers to inform class discussion.
Applicants are required to have qualifications equivalent to an Honours degree from a UK university in a relevant subject or experience. For overseas students there is a requirement for an IELTS score of 6.0 or higher (or equivalent). Applicants whose qualifications do not conform to these criteria may be admitted to the programme at the admission tutors discretion which will normally involve an interview.
Modules include: Toxicology; applied toxicology; research skills; research project; plus options.
Assessment is through laboratory work; data analysis; essays; oral presentations; written theory examinations.
