MSc Reproduction and Development
This innovative blended 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 is delivered mostly via distance learning, with a short period of time in Bristol (up to 3 weeks per year).
The programme consists of two intensive teaching workshops per year - one workshop online/distance-learning (usually in September/October) and one workshop face-to-face in Bristol (usually March). 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 equips international students for a range of challenging settings in reproductive medicine around the globe.

- Our students are also required to spend a minimum of one to three weeks in Bristol per year, for the March workshop depending on study mode. Some students choose to stay in Bristol for longer.
- You will study the physiological basis of gamete formation, fertilisation, implantation and pregnancy, and their endocrine control as well as the clinical management of infertility, assisted conception technologies and the diagnosis and management of common fetal abnormalities.
The programme is structured around six taught units and a research project, the outlines below show the part and full-time structures, please refer to the taught unit information where the outlines indicate RED01, RED04 etc.
