Master’s courses usually take one year full-time and allow you to specialise in a particular scientific area. There are many to choose from. For example, you might like to specialize in -
- molecular biology
Clinical Master’s courses are undertaken whilst working in a hospital and are advertised by the NHS.
Unlike your undergraduate degree, there is no central admissions system for postgraduate courses, although UCASs sister organisation, UKPASS does allow you to apply to courses at some universities.
Apply directly to individual universities for as many courses as you like. It is usual to apply anytime after the start of your final year, but you can apply later. If you can self-fund and obtain a good degree, you have a good chance of being accepted onto many courses.
