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.
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.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology is taught mostly online over 10 months. Students take three online modules and attend a short residential weekend in nanoscale materials characterisation in Oxford.
