    This course can be taken in 12 months at full time, but many students choose the part time, 2 year route.

    The first of your three semesters will see you studying with top embryologists, clinicians, scientists and specialist of other types, focusing on the fundamental elements of reproduction. You’ll come to understand the science behind modern fertility treatments, and will have the opportunity to visit the assisted conception unit at Jessop Fertility where you’ll learn important techniques in embryo transfer (ET), intra-cytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and in vitro fertilisation (IVF).

    In the second semester, you’ll participate in lab-based research projects to improve your scientific skills and laboratory technique.

    Core modules:

    • Fertilisation, Implantation and Embryology
    • Foetal Development, Pregnancy and Parturition
    • Gonads to Gametes: fundamentals of reproduction
    • Law, Ethics and Policy in Reproductive Medicine
    • Reproductive Technology and Infertility
    • Research Skills in Reproductive Medicine

    You’ll learn in an active, engaging environment including collaborative learning and group projects, in depth case studies, seminars and of course traditional lecture classes during your first semester, as well as visiting a working fertility clinic. The second semester will be primarily laboratory based.

They aim to give their staff the time, resources and freedom they need to develop truly revolutionary modules and better cater to the needs of their students. Ideally, they seek to instil a love of learning itself as well as the ability for those students to self-motivate and self-direct.

It is a very inter-disciplinary environment, and every student brings a different career goal to the program.
