This programme is only offered by distance learning for both its full and part-time study formats. All students will need to come to Bristol during September for exams at the end of each year. The time spent in Bristol is one week per year for part-time students and two weeks for full-time students.
|Start date||September 2021|
This innovative distance-learning programme is taught online and will provide you with knowledge and understanding in the highly topical and exciting field of stem cell biology and regeneration. You will be guided from the origins of this field through to its application (and potential applications) in treating human disease, covering the latest tools and technologies available for study in this area. Programme content is delivered by researchers active in the field, giving you the opportunity to engage with the latest breakthroughs.
Lectures, online discussions and assessments are delivered over the internet. This offers you more flexibility than traditional campus-based courses as you can study in your own environment. You will only be required to visit Bristol for your formal examinations at the end of the academic year. This distance-learning model, together with a part-time study option, makes the programme particularly appealing if you want to combine full-time employment with study.
