O que eu aprenderei?


Develop your research skills and learn about the latest innovations in cardiovascular medicine and science. Taught by experts from the BHF Cardiovascular Centre of Research Excellence, you’ll discover the latest ideas in the subject and take on your own research project. Study specialised modules on heart failure, acute syndromes, and inflammation. You’ll even learn about cross-cutting technologies, discovering the latest imaging techniques – some still in development.

Course detail

The Cardiovascular Research MSc course provides comprehensive theoretical and practical training in specialist technical skills taught by experts in their respective fields. You will explore fundamental and applied modules focusing on the heart and vasculature and state of the art techniques in cardiovascular medicine and science. You will also complete numerous Cardiovascular Skills Workshops before carrying out a research project and dissertation. Alongside your dissertation you will participate in an outreach event with the BHF centre. During your research project, you will become part of a research team for approximately six months where you will design, conduct and report on a project under appropriate supervision.

Teaching and assessment

You’ll study with renowned academics from our BHF funded cardiovascular Centre of Research Excellence. As well as expert researchers, you’ll hear from visiting clinicians and other professionals throughout the course. And with plenty of workshops and visits to inpatient and outpatient clinics, there are lots of opportunities to see the theory come to life. Much of your work will be assessed by coursework and you’ll also have some traditional exams as part of the course. We use lectures, seminars and group tutorials to deliver most of the modules on the course. You will also be expected to undertake 700 hours of independent study. Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written examinations. Forms of coursework assessment may typically include oral presentations, workshop write-ups as well as a project dissertation. Coursework contributes approximately 75% and examinations approximately 25% to your final mark.

Career prospects

We designed this course to help you develop strong research skills useful for your career, whether you’re a recent graduate from a related science subject or you’re a foundation or core trainee doctor looking to improve your specialist knowledge. Here at King’s, we offer a BHF PhD programme in Cardiovascular Science. While places are very limited, it’s a natural progression if you’re working towards a research role in academia or industry. If you’re more interested in the practical clinical aspect, many of our students use the course to boost their knowledge in the subject during their career journey to specialist training. Of course, it’s a competitive field, but the skills and contacts you’ll develop at King’s will be useful throughout your career.
