    Course Summary

    The University of Glasgow’s Cardiovascular Sciences MSc(Med Sci) degree program was created to address a particular need in the UK and around the world. Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death today, and is expected to remain so for at least the next 20 years. Naturally, there is a grave need for specialists in this field, to develop the treatments or preventative measures which will reduce the deadliness of this type of illness.

    Glasgow’s Masters degree program in Cardiovascular Sciences gives students the highly specialised training and conceptual knowledge they need to address this issue head on. As such, many will become a part of any number of world research institutes or the medical, pharmaceutical and biotech industries’ efforts to combat cardiovascular disease.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This course will involve the in-depth, highly specialised study of cardiovascular disease’s epidemiology, and the analysis of its inherent mechanisms on both the molecular and cellular levels. You will take a wide range of taught modules, including:

    • Basic Science (Diabetes and Vascular Disease)
    • Clinical and Research Audit
    • Clinical Aspects of Cardiovascular Disease
    • Established & Novel Research Techniques
    • Evidence-based Research in Medicine
    • Medical Statistics
    • Pharmacogenomic & Molecular Medicine: Applied Pharamcogenomics and Molecular Medicine
    • Pharmacogenomic and Molecular Medicine: Fundamentals of Molecular Medicine
    • Topics in Therapeutics: Commonly Used Drugs
    • Topics in Therapeutics: General Topics & Cardiovascular Disease

    In addition to the taught modules, you will participate in a uniquely student-led critical review program. This will focus on understanding and analysing cutting edge research papers published in the field of cardiovascular science.

    You will also undertake a dissertation or a similar large individual research project in your last term(s). This will be an excellent opportunity for you to display your talents, as you will be personally supervised by an established researcher in the field of cardiovascular science. In addition, you will have the full resources of the University of Glasgow at your back.

    Learning & Teaching

    S well as standard lecture and seminar classes, you’ll conduct your own research and work closely with established names in the field. The University of Glasgow’s Cardiovascular Sciences program is enriched by their commitment to research-based learning and teaching methods and the strong connections they have with the NHS and other stakeholders in the field of cardiovascular science.

    Career Possiblities

    The University of Glasgow’s Cardiovascular Sciences degree program prepares students to take up well-respected roles in the field of cardiovascular research. After graduation many find roles in education, clinical programs which apply the latest research, commercial ventures in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology spaces, or of course the NHS.

    Entry Credit

    Entry Requirements for UK and EU-nationals

    The University of Glasgow’s Cardiovascular Sciences program typically requires applicants to have earned an honours degree in pharmacy, a bioscience or a medical field.

    Entry Requirements for overseas (non-EU) students                         

    International students must be fluent in written and spoken English. This can be demonstrated by an IELTS score of 6.5 or better overall, with no less than 6.0 in any of its modules.

    International students must also have undergraduate accreditation equivalent to that required for UK and EU students. Again, the requirements can vary, and are found here.
