University of Sheffield
This one-year masters course will teach you the latest microscopy techniques, which can be used to answer biological questions ranging from how proteins interact and how cancer cells grow to how plant cells breathe and how photosynthesis works at the most fundamental level.
During your degree, you will be able to learn super-resolution and atomic force microscopy techniques from specialists in the University of Sheffield’s Biophysical Imaging Centre, and electron microscopy techniques from scientists in our dedicated £3 million facility.
- You need to have successfully completed at least three years of your current Medicine course before the start date of the intercalated masters degree
- You need to have a three year average GPA of 4.0 out of 5.0 (where your course is graded differently we will consider equivalent grades)
- If your GPA (or equivalent) is lower, we may still consider your application subject to successfully completing an interview
- If you are an international student, you must also meet the course english language requirements as specified in the prospectus.
As an external student, please ensure you are eligible to be released for an intercalated masters degree by your university. Timelines and processes will vary by university.
Most of our courses will accept applications up to May each year for intercalating students. This will vary depending on your circumstances and the capacity on our courses, therefore the sooner you apply, the sooner you could secure a place. You should also factor in any internal deadlines or processes with your university to confirm that you can be released to take an intercalated masters degree.
