Career opportunities

Institutions are increasingly being called to account for their decisions and procedures, and reflection on the ethical principles that underlie practice is an important part of continuing professional development for healthcare professionals.

An MA in Bioethics and Medical Law is therefore a very flexible and useful qualification to have. It offers a unique and distinguishing asset to have on your CV: our students find the course not only interesting in itself, but also a unique distinguishing asset when applying for jobs in medicine, nursing and allied health care professions as well as in education and law.

The degree sharpens your ability to critically engage and contribute to the world around you: the study of a contemporary and universally relevant subject such as medical ethics and law is an excellent preparation for any profession that requires graduates with high levels of human understanding, critical skills and knowledge of current affairs.

The MA also provides a strong foundation for those wishing to pursue further postgraduate research at PhD level. Previous MA graduates have gone on to study for doctorates at St Mary’s and other universities in the UK and internationally. Several past students are currently on the national bioethics bodies for their home countries.

Many of our students study for the MA as a form of professional development and advancing their career prospects. Through one-to-one sessions, interaction with MA graduates and careers workshops held in conjunction with the Careers Service, we aim to help students explore the full range of opportunities that are available to them once they have completed their MA.
