MSc in Science (F12) - Qualification withdrawal

The Open University will withdraw the MSc in Science (F12) on 31 December 2022. All students who wish to claim this qualification before it is withdrawn will need to satisfy all necessary academic requirements before this date.

Students should keep in mind that the following core modules will be withdrawn over the next two years:

  • Molecules in medicine (S807) started for the final time in February 2020
  • Concept to clinic (S827) will be available for the final time in October 2020
  • The MSc project module (S810) will be available for the final time in November 2021

Students who are considering taking S807 or S827 towards F12 must successfully complete one or both of these modules before the project module (S810), which we expect students to take as their final module within this qualification.

Please talk to your Student Support Team if you need any further information. You can find out how to contact them on Contact the OU.
