Course Summary

This course will bring you up to speed with the post-genomic era that has followed the game changing breakthrough from the sequencing of the human genome. The data now being generated is producing insights at an amazing rate, and personalised medicine is just around the corner. Skilled and talented biologists capable of analysing, processing and innovating are in growing demand by employers. If you're a science graduate who wants to specialise and gain employment in this area, then you can be part of the new golden age in medical genomics with this master's degree.

On this course, you’ll enhance your knowledge of genomic science from a health perspective. As genetic testing becomes part of routine medical evaluations and more geneticists are needed to perform the tests, we can help develop your skills through unique research projects, outstanding teaching and high-quality facilities. You’ll be tested through a wide variety of assessments. You’ll write laboratory reports, give presentations, sit written exams, take part in debates, answer quizzes, experience virtual labs via online learning, make posters and defend your work in presentations. With your training in human genetics, many opportunities will be available to you upon graduation. As genetics becomes a recognised part of all biological sciences, there will be an increasing demand for individuals with expertise in this field.
