The programme encourages cutting-edge cross-disciplinary research. It offers an opportunity for students to become global leaders in the biomedical industry. There is a rapid and exponential rise in the amount of genomics sequence data in all its forms , and UK research councils have identified the bioinformatics sector as a key driver for growth in the industrial and medical biotechnology, pharmaceutical and health markets, and have made it a key priority area for investment.
Our staff are research active and embed outcomes of their world leading research into the design of our courses, ensuring that you are equipped not just for the job market today, but are well prepared for the future. University of Bradford Courses Postgraduate Bioinformatics. Bioinformatics MSc.
Attendance mode Full-time Full-time. Entry year Duration Start date Location. Apply now. Overview Bioinformatics is a branch of the life sciences that focus on analysing and integrating big data acquired in biomedical experimentation. Entry requirements.
A medical degree would also be appropriate. The scholarships above are specific to this programme.
For more funding opportunities search the scholarships database. Normally an upper second-class Honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject. Professional experience may be taken into account. Applicants with a lower second-class Honours degree in a relevant subject will be considered on a case by case basis. For all other degree backgrounds, please consult the programme director for advice before applying. You do not need to have previous experience in computer programming, but you should be numerate as part of the programme is spent learning programming and many of the courses involve statistical analysis.
We may admit you if your background is outside molecular biology and we are confident that you can develop your understanding of the biology background in a timely manner. If you have a degree in a molecular bioscience and want to specialise or enhance your skills in biological computing, this programme is designed for you. If your background is in a non-molecular life science or in another discipline such as computing science, please apply anyway, or enquire see the contact listed above , as we do often take students with other backgrounds.
International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College , who offer a range of pre-Masters courses. For applicants whose first language is not English, the University sets a minimum English Language proficiency level. For international students, the Home Office has confirmed that the University can choose to use these tests to make its own assessment of English language ability for visa applications to degree level programmes.
We therefore still accept any of the English tests listed for admission to this programme. The University of Glasgow accepts evidence of the required language level from the English for Academic Study Unit Pre-sessional courses.

We are proud of our diverse University community which attracts students and staff from over different countries. To apply for a postgraduate taught degree you must apply online. We cannot accept applications any other way. You may save and return to your application as many times as you wish to update information, complete sections or upload supporting documents such as your final transcript or your language test. These notes are intended to help you complete the online application form accurately; they are also available within the help section of the online application form.
Reference : Please provide one reference. This should typically be an academic reference but in cases where this is not possible then a reference from a current employer may be accepted instead. Certain programmes, such as the MBA programme, may also accept an employer reference. If you already have a copy of a reference on letter headed paper then please upload this to your application. Classes start September and you may be expected to attend induction sessions the week before.

Academic contact: mvls-bioinformatics glasgow. Why this programme TOP 20 in the UK for Biological Sciences Complete University Guide The aim of this programme is to equip students with understanding and hands-on experience of both computing and biological research practices relating to bioinformatics and functional genomics.
Benefit from being taught by scientists at the cutting edge of their field with intensive, hands-on experience in an active research lab during the summer research project. Emphasis is placed on understanding core principles in practical bioinformatics and functional genomics, then implementing that understanding in a series of practical elective courses in semester 2 and a summer research project.
Gain practical experience of working with large molecular datasets, with semester 2 courses built around real research scenarios, enabling you to see why each scenario uses the particular approaches it does and how to go about organising and implementing appropriate analysis pipelines.
Learn computer programming in courses run by staff in the internationally reputed School of Computing Science, in conjunction with their MSc in Information Technology.
Scientists here have pioneered the 'polyomics' approach, in which new insights come from the integration of data across different omics levels. In addition, we have several world-renowned research centres at the University, such as the Wellcome Centre for Molecular Parasitology, the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research and the Wolfson Wohl Cancer Research Centre, whose scientists do ground-breaking research employing bioinformatic approaches in the study of disease.
Programme structure Bioinformatics helps biologists gain new insights about genomes genomics and genes, about RNA expression products of genes transcriptomics and about proteins proteomics ; rapid advances have also been made in the study of cellular metabolites metabolomics and in a newer area, systems biology. The programme has the following overall structure: core material of 60 credits in semester 1, made up of 10, 15 and 20 credit courses. Project of 60 credits over 14 weeks embedded in a research group over the summer.
Core courses include: Programming Java Database Theory and Application Foundations of Bioinformatics Omics and Systems Approaches in Biology credit summer research project lasting 14 weeks; normally this will be in one of the research laboratories in Glasgow associated with the programme, but there is also the opportunity to study in suitable laboratories in other parts of the world.
