Join the fight against cancer and learn more about the biological and molecular aspects of the disease as well as the diagnosis and treatment of oncology.

Taught by internationally recognised scientists and clinicians in cancer research, you examine everything from the cellular and molecular biology of cancer to the techniques used in cancer research before focusing on cancer treatment and novel cancer drug development.

You’ll deepen your knowledge in all areas of cancer research and choose a project in an area you are particularly interested in. You'll join a research group working in that area and conduct an in-depth six-month independent research project making use of some of the latest technology in oncology and strengthening your ability to successfully evaluate and interpret cancer research data.

For over 20 years our Oncology MSc has been providing up-to-date knowledge and training to students in clinics and labs, giving them a unique approach to the study of cancer.

At Nottingham, you'll receive a thorough grounding in oncology that will help you succeed in your career tackling one of the world's biggest killers.
