Overview

Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine is an ever-emerging interdisciplinary field of biomedical research; which combines life, engineering and materials sciences, to progress the maintenance repair and replacement of diseased and damaged tissues. The Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine programme from Cardiff University aims to provide graduates from life sciences and clinical backgrounds with an advanced knowledge, understanding and skills in the science and practice of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; from theoretical science, through to research translation and clinical application. The Programme provides in-depth training in this branch of biomedical science, including stem cell biology, biomaterials and tissue/organ engineering. The MSc offers a balanced combination of theory and practice; and can serve either as preparation for a PhD or as a self-contained advanced qualification in its own right. The MSc in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine is both lecture- and laboratory-based, and includes a number of opportunities to visit relevant clinical settings and local industrial partners. Graduates from this Programme will have a broad spectrum of knowledge and a variety of skills, making them highly attractive both to potential employers and research establishments.

The programme further benefits from affiliation and close involvement with the Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER).  CITER is an interdisciplinary research network between the Schools of Biosciences, Chemistry, Dentistry, Engineering, Healthcare Studies, Medicine, Optometry, Pharmacy and Social Sciences. Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine MSc students will therefore study within a multidisciplinary community with internationally excellent academic, research and clinical expertise.  

Students will acquire and develop a range of valuable skills, both specific to tissue engineering and regenerative medicine as well as generic ‘employability skills’. Through the Programme, students will develop technical laboratory skills and will be presented with a number of opportunities to extend their communication and presentation skills, both written and orally. Students will acquire a number of specific skills, such as the ability to collect, analyse and interpret a range of complex quantitative and qualitative data. They will also develop a number of valuable laboratory research-based skills, through the completion of a dissertation, which will be presented as a poster at the annual CITER scientific meeting.

Distinctive features

  • The first course of its kind in the UK, created in response to demand in the field of tissue engineering for interdisciplinary teaching.
  • Excellent clinical, academic and research facilities.
  • High probability of further research study and careers in tissue engineering and repair, relevant to MSc Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine and CITER remit.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Lower Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Lower Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

  • The Programme is suitable for Life Sciences and clinical graduates, interested in acquiring multidisciplinary skills in this expanding area of biomedical research.
  • Applicants are required to have a minimum 2:2 undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline and may come from either a biosciences or clinical background.
