MSc Med Exposure Science by research only (Programme code MRA05):
Applicants with proven research experience in an appropriate field will be considered for the MSc Med Exposure Science research track. Although no coursework is required, students can choose to attend any of the courses for credit, at an additional cost. Alternatively, modules can be undertaken by observation only (non-credited) at no charge. The latter option depends on availability of space on the Programme, and is not guaranteed. Depending on prior experience, students will be required to register for particular courses, to ensure that they gain the required relevant knowledge and skills.
