For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via This one-year, full-time, taught course leads to an MSc in Radiation Biology, which comprises a five-month theoretical lecture-based syllabus followed by a six-month research project. The five-month core theoretical course covers the emerging areas of fundamental radiation biology for oncology and its treatment by radiotherapy, along with the hazards associated with radiation exposure. Lectures will also introduce students to key areas of research and innovative developments in treatment. The modules are: Each module is delivered over a period of one or two weeks and together the 12 modules comprise the core content of the course. Lectures will be led by local, national and international experts, with time allocated for questions and informal discussion. These lectures are supported by additional tutorials, practical sessions and demonstrations given by local staff to provide a wide knowledge and understanding of radiation biology. The high-quality laboratory research project in basic or clinically applied research lasts approximately six months and projects are hosted by active research groups. Specific training and guidance is provided to enable students to complete the research project. To complete the MSc you need to submit the following summative assessments that contribute to your final degree: Full details of the syllabus, schedule and assessments can be found on the course webpage on the Department of Oncology's website. This MSc is designed for individuals who are interested in a career in academic research in radiation biology, radiation oncology or a career in professions that require knowledge of radiation biology (eg academic personnel associated with radiation protection issues). The MSc provides excellent training and experience for students interested in studying academic research at a PhD/DPhil level and forms the first year of training for students enrolled on the DPhil in Radiation Oncology (1+3). Applicants are recommended to visit the Department of Oncology website to review the range of radiation research undertaken within the department before they apply.
