Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine

Open days for prospective students

March 2015 taught Master’s introduction and taster session

On Wednesday 4 March, there’s an opportunity to find out more about taught Master’s (MSc) study on our three interconnected pathways in Science communication, History of science, technology and medicine and Medical humanities. You will be able to talk to current and former students and find out more about the wide range of career pathways available, from hands-on science communication to academic research. CHSTM staff will also be on hand to answer your questions about course structures, the application process, and funding.

The session will be held from 2pm till 4pm in Room 2.57 Simon Building, Brunswick Street, Manchester (see Maps and travel).

There is no need to book your attendance in advance, but please let us know you will be attending so that we can estimate numbers.

To register attendance, or for any enquiries, please contact the relevant co-ordinators:

The session will also be recorded for those who can’t attend in person.

The March session does not cover postgraduate research: for more details, see the second video from the November session below, and visit the postgraduate research pages.
