MSc Regulatory Affairs (Medical Devices)

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

The TOPRA Medical Devices MSc will begin in February 2018. To join the programme, please contact Kay, our postgraduate administrator.
