Course Summary

This master’s course provides an in-depth understanding of disease processes from the molecular to the body/systems level, alongside the practical applications of biomedical science and recent scientific developments in diagnostic laboratory pathology. The programme is composed of a combination of modules which progressively build to the award of a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) or master’s. Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), this Master’s course offers postgraduate training in a selected discipline – Haematology and Blood Transfusion Science, Clinical Biochemistry and Immunology or Infection science. You can advance your skills and knowledge in laboratory management, together with modern scientific developments, such as genomics and stem cell technology.

The course prepares you for a wide range of careers spanning government, academic, commercial, industrial and healthcare applications of biomedical sciences. Examples of possible career routes include working in laboratory quality assurance and management or becoming a researcher or biomedical scientists for the NHS, public health laboratories, commercial diagnostic laboratories, the Blood Transfusion service, university research laboratories and bioscience/life sciences private companies. Within the NHS, a master’s qualification is required for further career progression to apply for Senior Biomedical Scientist positions at Band 7 and above.
