The MSc tissue engineering course is a fantastic course teaching the ethical, social, clinical and bimolecular aspects of modern tissue engineering and translational research with a final six month dissertation project in a world class laboratory. The course attracts students from all over the world and provides many opportunities to engage in a supportive and friendly environment. For me, this course was vital for my progression to becoming an independent researcher. I found that the lectures were really engaging, allowing me to develop my knowledge of tissue engineering. I was then able to apply this to my laboratory project. For me the project was the best part of this course, as it allowed me to develop key laboratory skills and undertake novel research on wound healing in a world class facility.

Mae'n rhaid i ymgeiswyr sydd angen fisa Haen 4 i astudio yn y DU gyflwyno cymhwyster iaith Saesneg derbyniol er mwyn bodloni gofynion UKVI (Fisâu a Mewnfudo y DU).

The CITER MSc Programme commences in September each year with Stage 1, a 6-month, taught component.

Stage 1 is taught almost entirely at a small group teaching level, supported by laboratory sessions, interactive workshops and tutorials, in addition to visits to relevant hospital clinics and local companies involved in producing tissue engineering and repair therapies. Modules are assessed by various written assignments, presentations and formal examinations.

On completing Stage 1, students undertake a 5-month, laboratory-based research project within the CITER network, between April-September (Stage 2). Projects are chosen by students from topics supplied by academic supervisors within CITER. Previous student projects have been in research areas such as embryonic or mesenchymal stem cell biology; cartilage, bone, skin or oral tissue repair; fibrosis; and biomaterials and drug delivery. Stage 2 culminates in the submission of an MSc Dissertation, based on MSc Project findings.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2019/20. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2019.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.
