What will I learn?
Students gain a robust understanding of the scientific basis of Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine, alongside the ability to identify translational applications. They develop key clinical and research skills such as management of data, analysis and statistics and molecular and cellular laboratory techniques.
Why should I study this degree at UCL?
The Division of Surgery and Interventional Science is part of one of the most prestigious medical schools in Europe, with a team of nearly 400 people, from surgeons and oncologists to clinical trials specialists and researchers. Our aim is to understand the causes of human disease and develop innovative therapies and technology to improve quality of life.
The Division, reaching across four London campuses (Royal Free, Bloomsbury, Whittington, and Stanmore) brings together four major research departments; Sports Exercise and Health, Surgical Research, Urology, and the Institute of Orthopaedics and Musculoskeletal Science. Within these departments are world-class research centres.
Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of six core modules (90 credits), and a research project (90 credits).
All students undertake an extensive laboratory-based research project in translational research which culminates in a dissertation of 10,000 words and an individual viva.
Teaching and Learning
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, workshops, group discussions, practical sessions, and demonstrations. Assessment is through presentations, problem-solving workshops, written practical reports, coursework, unseen written examinations and the dissertation.
