The Cardiovascular Biology module will consist of taught lectures and Journal Clubs where you will further develop your skills in critical analysis and presentation of research data. The Research Project will be supported by regular tutorials with the programme leads. All the taught modules will run within the first term of the course.
- Research Methods (Distance Learning)
- Cardiovascular Biology
- Theory of Laboratory Research Methods
- Research project
After consulting with potential supervisors you will select a 6 month research project which will begin in January and end in July. The project will generally be laboratory-based within one of the research groups in the Institute of Cardiovascular Science.
Being an integral member of an active research group will give you the opportunity to contribute meaningfully to ongoing cardiovascular research in Newcastle, and provide you with a real insight into how this research is conducted.
Considering postgraduate study, but unsure whether you meet the entry requirements for a Masters-level degree? Postgraduate admissions guidelines vary by course and university, but can be quite flexible.
Your existing qualifications will be important, but you don’t necessarily need a great Bachelors degree to apply for a Masters. Your personal circumstances and experience may also be considered during the admissions process.
This guide explains the typical entry requirements for a Masters, which include:
- An undergraduate degree in a relevant subject – Depending on the programme and institution, you may need a 2.1 in your Bachelors, but this isn’t always the case
- Language proficiency – If English isn’t your first language, you’ll need to display a certain ability level, usually through a language test
- Professional experience – Some postgraduate programmes may require you to have some professional experience (this is usually the case for PGCEs and Masters in Social Work)
- Entrance exams – These are only required in certain subject areas and qualifications, including some MBAs
