You’re looking to specialise in urology, and to be taught by some of the best urology practitioners and academics in the UK. This course will help you develop your clinical, leadership and research skills. You’ll learn to innovate and drive change, and to improve patient experiences and outcomes.

Already have an ARU degree? You may be eligible for our Alumni Scholarship for students starting postgraduate courses.

This is one of very few Masters programmes in urology in the UK. It was designed, and is taught, in partnership with consultant urologists at Cambridge University Hospitals Trust, which has an international reputation for excellence.

The course is intended for junior trainees before they begin a registrar programme in urology, although it is also open to urology registrars. It is theory-based, so you’ll be expected to do your hands-on clinical practice at your place of work. You’ll experience a mix of face-to-face and distance learning. The academic teaching for 2024/25 is ‘currently under review’ and with a pending move towards distance learning for Trimesters 1/2, in order to address the current service demands of the NHS.
