Nanotechnology and nanomedicine

Part-time postgraduate courses and training

Our flexible courses in nanotechnology and nanomedicine are designed for professionals working in industry, research, healthcare, business, commercialisation and regulation. 

Postgraduate programmes

The part-time MSc in Nanotechnology for Medicine and Health Care is an advanced master’s degree specifically designed for those who would value a part-time and flexible modular learning structure, for example those in full-time employment both in the UK and overseas. Students on the courses are full members of the University of Oxford and are matriculated as members of an Oxford college.
