More about this course

The Blood Science MSc course at London Metropolitan University is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to practice biomedical science at the highest level in the emerging multidisciplinary area of blood science.

This increasingly popular field within pathology is a merger of three previously separate fields: clinical biochemistry, medical immunology and clinical haematology.

This course is ideal for your career advancement or CPD. For example, you may currently be working in a biomedical science environment, in either the health service or other related industry, and wish to progress further in your career.

You can study either part-time or full-time starting in the autumn or spring, allowing you to fit your studies around your working life. You'll be supported by our Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) Weblearn and Collaborate, which are accessible from home at all times.

All modules are taught by experts in their field with research interests and qualifications in relevant topics at a PhD level. You will learn in lectures, tutorials, seminars and practical workshops.

The completion of an IBMS-accredited course such as this Blood Science MSc is an essential prerequisite to attain the Chartered Scientist (CSci) professional qualification.

Assessment

You'll be assessed through self-diagnostic testing, debates, group work, computer-based analysis, lab reports, presentations, coursework, essays and cumulative exams.

Practical skills will be assessed periodically through the coursework assignments, including those in the final Research Project module.

Data handling skills will be assessed through practical reports, problem solving exercises, information abstracting and reviewing exercises, poster presentations, exams and seminar presentations.
