Course Summary

This vocational training course is for recent biology, biomedical, biochemistry and medical graduates who want to develop a career in the field of clinical embryology and assisted reproductive technology (ART) and/or the associated reproductive sciences.

It provides a detailed knowledge of the underpinning theory and practices and is a laboratory-based science degree not a clinically-based infertility treatment course.

Make an impact

Our course is designed to provide the breadth of practical training to prepare you for a career working in a field that gives you the chance to make a real difference to people’s lives. You’ll be instructed by leading experts who bring the latest research findings into their teaching.

Learning and teaching

The course is delivered using a blended learning approach, which combines lectures, seminars, tutorials, interactive group discussions, presentations and problem-based-learning sessions or case studies, and self-directed learning.

Theoretical training is complemented by the original research conducted by the student and by an extensive series of laboratory-based ART practical and skills training sessions.

The course content is enhanced by extensive online resources and the provision of printed versions of all module workbooks, as appropriate.


Course assessments will include essays, presentations, projects, practical log books, a research dissertation and examinations.

Career opportunities

The Clinical Embryology and Associated Reproductive Technology MSc equips graduates to pursue a career in human assisted reproduction (eg clinical embryology, infertility treatment) and/or research in the reproductive sciences. Students have also gone on to do post graduate research degrees (such as a PhD within our International PhD Academy in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease).

Careers support

We encourage you to prepare for your career from day one. That’s one of the reasons Leeds graduates are so sought after by employers.
