Master Forensic Toxicology by Research (Full-time, Part-time) - Máster en Toxicología Forense para Investigación
This new degree program has been designed specifically to provide you with an opportunity to widen your range of skills in a broad range of science specialism’s. You will gain and develop practical skills beyond those that are normally available within a first degree and will be required to engage in a large scale laboratory or fieldwork research project. You will produce a final piece of work that is publishable and/or presentable at a scientific meeting. Students completing the course should therefore have the confidence that they can demonstrate achievement, independent thinking and laboratory / fieldwork skills to a prospective employer.
You will undertake a double weighted research project in conjunction with just three taught units chosen from a wide range of units offered within the Applied Sciences Postgraduate Framework. The choice of units will be selected by students with guidance from individual course tutors.
A good Bachelors Honours degree, 2:2 or above in a relevant subject area or equivalent professional experience
This course allows you to tailor your study to your specific requirements or career aspirations. It is popular with students wishing to develop their research skills before tackling a PhD and provides a perfect introduction to research. Applicants from all fields of Applied Sciences relevant to existing staff expertise are welcome.
We welcome students on this course for both full-time and part-time study. For those wishing to complete the course on a part-time basis, the course is over two years. Students will be expected to study a minimum of three units per year, plus their dissertation (usually towards the end of their second year). The timetable of when the units take place vary each year, however, the units are timetabled during daytime hours, and will be studied with fellow full-time students.
