MSc Reproduction and Development
This innovative distance-learning programme delivers a comprehensive study of human reproduction, pregnancy and fetal development, alongside essential skills training in laboratory research and scientific method.
This programme combines online distance-learning with two intensive face-to-face workshops in Bristol per year. Workshops incorporate lectures, research seminars and an overview of the laboratory methodologies and clinical practices associated with this exciting specialism.
Our students are clinicians, scientists and researchers embarking on a range of careers in reproductive medicine and fetal development.
Clinicians use the programme either as an initial qualification or to develop further within this field. Scientists can use it as a springboard into non-clinical research, or clinical and diagnostic positions such as clinical embryologist.
The programme also equips international students well for a range of challenging settings in reproductive medicine around the globe.
The programme is structured around six taught units and a research project.
