    The Musculoskeletal Science MSc covers a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal topics, including basic science and clinical aspects. It aims to give students, in a multidisciplinary setting, a holistic view of musculoskeletal science, orthopaedic bioengineering and medicine, and provides an in-depth knowledge of specific areas appropriate to each student's individual interests.

    Students on this MSc programme acquire essential scientific knowledge, improve their basic research skills, and are equipped with the ability to solve the musculoskeletal problems emphasised within the NHS framework. The programme emphasises the four major areas as identified by the Bone and Joint Decade - arthritis, osteoporosis, trauma and spinal disorders, and transferable skills and research methodology in orthopaedic bioengineering.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of eight taught modules (120 credits), and a research project (60 credits).

    Students will be awarded an MSc on successful completion of all taught modules and research project; a Postgraduate Diploma on successful completion of eight taught modules (all core modules plus any four from options); and a Postgraduate Certificate on successful completion of four taught modules.

    A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time nine months and flexible study up to five years) is offered.

    A Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits, full-time three months and flexible study up to two years) is offered.

    Core modules

    • Clinical Aspects of Musculoskeletal Medicine and Surgery, Part I
    • Musculoskeletal Tissue Biology - Form and Function
    • Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Biomaterials, Part I
    • Research Methodology and Generic Skills

    Optional modules

    Up to 60 credits of optional modules (4 modules) drawn from the following:

    • Clinical Aspects of Musculoskeletal Medicine and Surgery, Part II
    • Musculoskeletal Tissue Biology - Disease and Dysfunction
    • Musculoskeletal Biomechanics and Biomaterials, Part II
    • Research Governance
    • Clinical Experience in Musculoskeletal Surgery
    • Surgical Skills in Orthopaedic Surgery

    Dissertation/report

    All MSc students undertake an independent research project that will contribute to cutting-edge scientific, clinical and industrial research, and culminates in a dissertation and oral examination.

    Teaching and learning

    The programme is delivered through a combination of taught lectures, seminars, tutorials, group project work and workshops. Assessment is through online MCQs, coursework, and the dissertation and viva voce. Candidates are examined in the year in which they complete the programme.

    The programme will be taught mostly at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, London. Some teaching will also take place in Bloomsbury.


    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.
