MSc Regulatory Affairs (Medical Devices)

TOPRA has developed an exciting new MSc in Medical Devices. It provides the opportunity for people to combine modules in both pharmaceutical and medical technology regulatory affairs, something that might be particularly beneficial for those interested in drug-device combination products, as well as consultants and members who are in the early stages of their career and wish to have a foot in both camps.

To join the programme, please contact Kay, our postgraduate administrator.
