ABOUT

This flexible course gives you the chance to choose specialist modules from the pathway that interests you most. You’ll carry out a five-month research project, which gives you invaluable laboratory experience. Our graduates go on to PhD study or work in related industries.
 

Course description

Lead academic: Dr Martin Nicklin

Designed for both animal/human biology and clinical graduates, this flexible course focuses on the molecular and genetic factors of human diseases. Understanding those factors is crucial to the development of therapies.

You’ll be brought up to date with the latest technical and scientific advances in biomedical science and therapeutic design and learn how to use the latest technology to answer research questions for yourself. Core modules cover the fundamentals. You’ll choose specialist modules from the pathway that interests you most.

You’ll also receive practical lab training to prepare you for your research project. The project is five months of invaluable laboratory experience: planning, carrying out, recording and reporting your own research.

Two-year post-study work visa

The UK government has announced a two-year post-study work visa for international students.

Your research project

We also give you practical lab training to prepare you for your research project. The project is five months of invaluable laboratory experience: planning, carrying out, recording and reporting your own research.

Examples of research projects

This list shows projects that students chose in 2017–2018. To protect intellectual property we haven’t displayed the most recent projects as they are likely to relate to current research in the investigator’s group. We usually generate a surplus of at least 30 per cent of projects. Students are guaranteed one of their top five choices and usually get their first or second choices. These projects are grouped by pathway title but almost all projects were available across more than one pathway.

Cancer
Experimental medicine
Microbes and infection
Genetic mechanisms

How we teach

We use speakers from the pharmaceutical industry to put our teaching into a commercial context. Practising clinical colleagues from the Medical School also contribute to this course.

The taught part of the course provides you with an understanding of the background and scientific methods that are used to investigate human diseases. We emphasise how experiments and experimental programmes are designed and interpreted. We aim to present the most recent scientific developments in each subject area, and we keep our course up to date to reflect changes in the emphasis of biomedical science.

Intercalation

We accept medical students who wish to intercalate their studies. 

 

Modules

A selection of modules are available each year – some examples are below. There may be changes before you start your course.

The course begins with six core modules that are appropriate to all specialities. These core modules cover the fundamentals.

You’ll then choose from one of four specialist pathways. Students decide on their pathway before the optional parts of the course begin in February. You only need to decide 10 weeks into the course when you choose your project, which will also be associated with a particular pathway. You’ll choose specialist modules from the pathway that interests you most.

Medical graduates may also be interested in our clinical applications pathway.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it’s up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we’ll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption. We are no longer offering unrestricted module choice. If your course included unrestricted modules, your department will provide a list of modules from their own and other subject areas that you can choose from.

 

Duration

1 year full-time. We are unable to offer a part-time or distance learning study option for this course at present.

Our expertise

The University of Sheffield is ranked number one in the UK for the world-leading quality of our biomedical research and in the top ten for combined world-leading and internationally excellent research outputs in clinical medicine.

The impactful, high-quality research that we undertake influences how we teach across all of our postgraduate courses. In many areas, our research activity spans the spectrum from basic science up to practical clinical applications. We pride ourselves on collaboration between  clinicians and non-clinicians, and many of our courses include teaching from practising clinicians as well as research-active academics.

 

Teaching

Your modules are taught intensively over a two-week period, generally starting on a Wednesday, which gives you the weekend to catch up.

Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratory demonstrations, computer practicals and student presentations.

Semesters and holidays

This MSc is an intensive programme, which means it doesn’t follow the standard University semester dates and main holidays. We don’t have a break during the Easter holiday and you’ll be expected to write the literature over the winter holiday.

There are two scheduled breaks: between December and January, and between August and September.

You’ll need to make sure that any breaks you intend to take don’t disrupt your research project (check with your research project supervisor).

Assessment

Assessment is continuous. Most modules are assessed by written assignments and coursework, although there are some written exams. Two modules are assessed by verbal presentations.

Your research project is assessed by a thesis, possibly with a viva.

Your career

A high proportion of students from this course progress to study for a PhD, while others go on to work in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical industries. Our graduates have gone on to work for many prestigious institutions throughout the world, including Cambridge Bioscience, Covance and ADC Biotechnology.

There are a wide variety of roles you can pursue, including:

  • PhD Studentship in Medical Science
  • Research work in Pharmaceutical/Biotech Industry
  • Laboratory management
  • Clinical trials management
  • Laboratory Research Assistant
  • Medicine
  • Clinical Scientist
  • Teacher of Science
  • Scientific Writer

 

Entry requirements

A 2:1 degree with a substantial element of human or animal biology. Medical students can intercalate after completion of three years of their medical degree. We also welcome medical graduates and graduates in other scientific subjects such as biotechnology.

 

Clinical applications pathway:

Overall IELTS score of 7.0 with a minimum of 6.5 in each component, or equivalent.

All other pathways:

Overall IELTS score of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or equivalent.

accommodation

The international undergraduate and postgraduate students at this university can use different types of accommodation options and live in a safe and vibrant environment to focus entirely on their studies and get the best result, also the students can use the cafes and bars gyms, and other living facilities, on the other hand, they can have an accommodation tour and Sheffield city tour to become familiar with their living environment and make the most suitable decision, as we said, this university offers various accommodation options with different fees like £6,782.58 to £10,210.62 for a rental place in the city for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and they can choose to have a private or shared room.

After Graduation

The international students can work up to 20 hours in part-time jobs in the UK, however, they must refer to their visa to see whether they have study and work permits or not, we recommend you to focus only on your education to get the best results and be able to find the most suitable jobs in the UK or the global market right after graduation, on the other hand, if the international applicants need extra financial help to pay for their tuition fee, living, and study expenses, they can find part-time jobs under some conditions, also if the students find related jobs to their educational fields (with the help of the university), they will obtain more real experience and skills aside from the theoretical knowledge that they acquire during their study period.
