The Personalised Medicine degree offered at Ulster University is the right treatment, for the right person, at the right time, is at the cutting edge of a new era for medicine. Our ability to understand how genes, lifestyle and environment can influence disease promises to revolutionise healthcare practices.


Stratified Medicine relies on using biomarkers (e.g. genes or protein) to stratify (or split) patients into specific groups for diagnosing or treating diseases. The ideals of Stratified Medicine will be realised with the development of technologies and systems to predict disease, select the best treatment, and reduce side effects for individual patients. This approach to streamline healthcare provides more accurate clinical decision making tools to identify ‘the right treatment, for the right person, at the right time.’

The University regularly ‘refreshes’ courses to make sure they are as up-to-date as possible. The University calls this process 'academic revalidation’. This  Personalised Medicine degree offered at Ulster University is currently being ‘refreshed’, with changes being put in place for students entering from September . Module selection may vary, for the most up-to-date course/ module information, please contact the Course Director.
