    Students will become expert in linking and analysing large complex datasets, using techniques which are transforming medical research and creating exciting new commercial opportunities. Graduates will be equipped for roles in the pharmaceutical industry, the NHS and technology start-ups, as well as academia.

    Students learn how to design and carry out complex and innovative clinical research studies that take advantage of the increasing amount of available data about the health, behaviour and genetic make-up of small and large populations. The content is drawn from epidemiology, computer science, statistics and other fields, including genetics.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

    The programme consists of five core modules (75 credits), three optional modules (45 credits) and a dissertation/report (60 credits).

    A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) is offered.

    A Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits) is offered.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
