Master’s Degrees

Our high quality MSc programmes are led by researchers and clinicians with expertise across the whole spectrum of women’s health. The objective of the Institute is to make a difference to the health of women in the UK and internationally by creation of a leading centre of excellence for research, clinical care, education and training. This provides a lively and exciting environment in which to undertake a Master’s degree. A Master’s degree at the Institute demands time and commitment; it will challenge your expectations and enable you to develop a wide range of key skills.

The UCL IfWH runs two MSc and Postgraduate Diploma Courses. The MSc and Postgraduate Diploma in Prenatal Genetics and Fetal Medicine were set up in 1996, and the MSc and Postgraduate Diploma in Reproductive Science and Women’s Health in September 2009.  The programmes offer a comprehensive theoretical understanding of these specialised topics, taught by clinical and scientific research leaders in the field.

There are also opportunities for clinic or laboratory-based project work, and for observation days following specialists in fetal medicine, reproductive health, and IVF clinics.  A variety of key skills essential for your future career will be taught, such as peer-assessment, critical evaluation of papers, written and oral communication skills, basic laboratory techniques, and patient case studies.

Both MSc and Postgraduate Diploma programmes can be taken as one-year full-time or two to five year flexible-time degrees. Further information on the structure and focus of each of the programmes is provided in the introductory video below and in the programme specific pages.
