Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine

There is national demand for specific interdisciplinary training to develop problem-solving strategies in the area of Tissue Engineering for Regenerative Medicine. Through our MRes, we will give you a comprehensive insight into topical issues such as stem cells, polymer technology, surface fabrication and gene delivery. The focus of your learning will be on strategies to repair, replace and ultimately regenerate various tissues and organs to solve major clinical problems. Many of our graduating students go on to pursue a PhD and carry out further research in this area, although others enter the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, as well as specialist clinical training.

Entry requirements

Home students require an honours degree (minimum Upper Second) from a British university in an appropriate biological or medical subject, including biomedical materials, dentistry, veterinary medicine and pharmacology.

Applicants with a Lower Second will only be considered if they hold a master¿s or have comparable research experience (i.e. in industry).

Overseas students are only accepted with an equivalent honours degree or similar in a biological or biomedical subject from an established university and should refer to entry requirements from your country for further information.

For MBChB students, the minimum student criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in Years 1 to 4. Students can fail, but must pass the resit, i.e. progress through the MBChB course. There should be no failure in the year before intercalation.

Sponsorship information

The course has a number of BBSRC Master's studentships available for UK/EU applicants.
