Course Summary

Who this course is for

If you want to reposition yourself as a leader in oncology, but don't want to take time out from your important work to study, this fully online MSc course will allow you to learn flexibly while still working.

Whether trainee doctor, clinical nurse specialist or another clinical care professional, studying this course will empower you to specialise and branch out professionally and upskill, transforming clinical outcomes for patients with cancer in the process. Whichever pathway you choose, studying Transformative Oncology will give you the tools to lead the next wave of cancer specialists and revolutionise the oncology field to effectively transform clinical outcomes for patients with cancer.

What you will learn

Develop new interdisciplinary approaches to expedite the early detection of cancer.
Learn from world-renowned cancer specialists and researchers, understanding cutting edge technology and embracing diversity to meet whole-population needs.
Understand the patient pathway to develop personalised strategies for cancer treatment.
Develop critical insight into the physical principles underpinning radiotherapy, medical imaging for radiotherapy, treatment planning and future developments of radiotherapy.

Where and when you will study

This fully online, part-time MSc means you can study from anywhere in the world and fit it around your day-to-day life. You will be expected to learn while you continue to work, and to use examples from your work throughout your study.

You can take 1-3 years to complete the PGCert, 2-4 years to complete a PGDip and up to 3-5 years to complete the MSc. You'll learn through a mix of interactive teaching and have plenty of opportunities to work collaboratively with your peers.
