Course overview

In December 2020, the World Health Organisation (WHO) stated that diabetes-related deaths increased by 70% globally between 2000 and 2019. Diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke, and lower limb amputation.

In this MSc, you will acquire deep knowledge and comprehensive intellectual integrity on the different types of diabetes and associated complications, the pathophysiology and diagnosis, as well as understanding up-to-date therapeutic approaches. The course is suitable for healthcare professionals, researchers and intercalating medical students.


You will be assessed via coursework assignments, which may include literature reviews, systematic reviews, case studies, posters, or oral presentations.
