The UCL Institute of Ophthalmology is one of the premier centres in the world for the study of vision and the mechanisms, diagnosis and therapy of eye disease. We embrace fundamental research, through the entire spectrum of translational medicine to clinical trials. This MSc programme draws upon the extensive basic and clinical research experience available at the Institute and at Moorfield's Eye Hospital. Students gain expertise in basic cell biology, genetics, neuroscience and physiology, specialise in the biology of the eye as an integrated biological system and conduct a six month research project within a world-class research environment. Your future career The programme aims to train first-class basic and clinical scientists in the field of Ophthalmology. It provides excellent preparation for a PhD programme or a successful research career in either academia or industry. Entry Requirements Applicants must have a minimum of a second-class UK Bachelor's degree in a relevant subject, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. How to apply The closing date for applications is 31 July for the year of entry. Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? The programme is suitable for students with either a science, biomedical or medical degree who wish to specialise in the eye as an integrated biological system. Students undertake a substantial research project making this MSc an excellent preparation for anyone wishing to embark on a career in vision research.
