This one year, residential, taught MSc aims to provide graduate students, scientists and clinicians with highly advanced theoretical and practical understanding of human reproductive biology, embryology, infertility and assisted reproductive technology (ART) along with intensive ‘hands-on’ practical training in essential laboratory skills and the sophisticated gamete micromanipulation techniques associated with ART. The department’s aim is to inspire, motivate and train a network of future leaders in clinical embryology throughout the world.
The Population Health MSc will provide the core skills needed to work in public health, as well as offering a wide range of optional modules which can be targeted towards a range of careers in or parallel to this area including: health policy, programme management, health inequalities, and urban and environmental planning.
Core Concepts in Population Health (to be confirmed)

This innovative MSc programme makes extensive use of the internet to provide a comprehensive theoretical foundation in the areas of human reproduction and development. The programme is designed to appeal to a wide range of postgraduate students including scientists, nurses and clinicians. Residential workshops will be held in Bristol, comprising lectures and seminars as well as journal clubs, practical sessions and assessments. Each distance-learning module will comprise online tutorials and lectures plus essays and assessment by email and conferencing.
Reproductive Physiology and Endocrinology
Gametogenesis to Implantation
Statistics and Research Methods
Human Development and Pregnancy
Statistics and Research Methods
Infertility - Diagnosis and Management
This innovative distance-learning programme is taught online and will provide you with knowledge and understanding in the highly topical and exciting field of stem cell biology and regeneration. You will be guided from the origins of this field through to its application (and potential applications) in treating human disease, covering the latest tools and technologies available for study in this area. Programme content is delivered by researchers active in the field, ensuring that the very latest breakthroughs are communicated. Using a creative distance-learning model, the programme delivers lectures, online discussions and assessments over the internet. This offers you more flexibility than traditional campus-based courses as you can study in your own environment. You will only be required to visit Bristol for the completion of your formal examinations at the end of the academic year. This distance-learning model, together with a part-time study option, makes the programme particularly appealing to those students who wish to combine full-time employment with studying towards a qualification.

This taught Masters course will provide you with a detailed understanding of human and primate evolution, focusing on anatomy and morphology and their interfaces with ecology and behaviour. Through membership of the interdisciplinary PALAEO Centre at the University of York, this MSc is an attractive option for those wishing to combine anatomical and archaeological approaches to the study of palaeoanthropology.
Human evolutionary anatomy
Hard tissue biology
Primate ecology and evolution
Functional and musculoskeletal anatomy
Special topics in musculoskeletal anatomy
Research project & dissertation
This is a one year (academic) full time course which, upon completion of a course of study, leads to an M.Med.Sci Degree in Assisted Reproduction Technology. This course provides an avenue for both scientists and clinicians to enter the field of reproductive biology; and for those already familiar with this area, an opportunity to gain greater appreciation of the biological processes of mammalian reproduction that are relevant to the manipulation of fertility and the treatment of reproductive disease. The course was established in 1993, making it the longest running taught masters in the UK providing full-time training in human ART, and aims to furnish graduates with the formal theoretical and practical training necessary within this highly specialised discipline. Designed to broaden knowledge of the underlying scientific principles and to enhance appreciation of the clinical management of infertility, it aims to encourage independent thought and a research orientated approach to the practice of assisted conception. A major feature and strength of the course is that the primary components, in terms of reproductive physiology, research methods, clinical embryology and clinical medicine are all provided by experts who are highly active within their own areas of expertise, giving the information provided to the students an immediacy and relevance that it would be impossible to achieve using a more static and established teaching base.

This course aims to promote the importance of an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to study fundamental physiological aspects of human health and disease. This approach combines state of the art physiological and metabolic methodologies with relevant molecular biology approaches to answer questions of clinical relevance. This course is aimed at (1) students with a background in Physiology, Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, Biology, Nutrition, Exercise Science, Medicine and other related disciplines, (2) graduates with work experience in health-related research groups in academia and industry, and (iii) health and exercise professionals who have interests in the physiology underlying health and disease.
