MSc Bioinformatics: One-year course

Applications are invited from students with backgrounds in biological 
sciences, medical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, computing sciences, 
information sciences, mathematics, engineering, chemistry or physics for 
this exciting course which is delivered in a collaboration between the 
Faculty of Computing Sciences and Engineering and the Faculty of Health and 
Life Sciences.

The aim of this course is to provide students with knowledge of the various 
types of problems addressed in bioinformatics, skills in the computational 
techniques used and insight into their theoretical basis. On the completion 
of the programme, students are ready to embark upon a PhD in Bioinformatics, 
or to take up a position in a bioinformatics related group, either in 
industry or in academia.

This programme provides a bridge for students with different backgrounds to 
cross over their existing disciplines and come into this exciting new field; 
it is not necessary for students to have a background in more than one 
relevant discipline.  Part time mode is also available for this programme.
