No. The MSc Oncology course is a stand-alone discrete course aimed at specialist registrars who are on their UK training rota. It is a part-time, one-day-a-week course.
You would not be discouraged from applying. However, as this is a part-time, one-day-a-week course you might not be eligible for an appropriate study visa. One of the course requirements is that you have a clinical post in the UK for the duration of the course. We are generally unable to accept your application if you do not have such a post, although we are more than happy to discuss your individual application. Unfortunately we cannot provide any funding assistance for overseas students and you will be required to pay your own fees.
Fees for the part-time MSc Oncology course can be accessed on the Tuition Fees page.
Course dates for Part A are as follows:
Start date – Friday 5 October 2018
End date – Friday 25 July 2019
Course dates for Part B are as follows:
Start date – Thursday 27 September 2018
End date – Thursday 3 July 2019 (TBC)
The course is currently taught at:
CCT Venues-Barbican Aldersgate House 135-137 Aldersgate Street London EC1A 4JA
The MSc Oncology is not specifically designed as a preparatory or revision course for FRCR exams, although it does cover the curriculum needed to sit the Royal College of Radiologists’ Part One and Part Two examinations in Clinical Oncology. Registration for the FRCR exams is the student’s responsibility. You are asked to contact the Royal College of Radiologists for further details.
