Masters in Medical Technology Regulatory Affairs


The global Medical Technology industry is a highly regulated industry, to ensure that medical devices are manufactured to the highest quality and safety standards. As such, Medical Technology companies have grown their regulatory affairs teams to meet the growing global regulatory demands.

The programme design also develops complementary skill sets such as communication and research skills. The programme integrates legal principles, ethics and compliance issues.

Training takes place over typically two years, with two semesters per year. Participants will complete a dissertation during Year 2 of the programme.
