What qualifications do you need?
For entry to the programme, you will need the equivalent of a UK first or second-class honours degree in a relevant subject (e.g. biology, medicine, nursing, dentistry, or pharmacy) from an acceptable institution.
We may consider degrees of the same standard in other scientific subjects if we believe they will offer suitable training for the programme. We will also consider applicants with an appropriate technical qualification and work experience.

If you do not meet the above, we can still consider your application on the basis of your qualifications, experience and references.
