The exit award of MSc is dependent on successful completion of 180 credits. Full-time students study three 20 credit modules in both Trimester 1 and 2 and a 60 credit research project in Trimester 3.

Core modules include:
• Genetic Analysis and Cancer
• Clinical Immunology
• Research Advances in BMS
• Disease, Detection, Monitoring and Therapy
• Research Design

You will also study a module in your chosen specialist discipline from:
• Blood Sciences
• Cell & Tissue Pathology

A taught module in the chosen discipline offers advanced understanding of the major systems and diseases with particular emphasis on laboratory diagnosis and research advances.

MSc

Upon successful completion of the taught modules you will undertake the MSc research project.

Professional recognition

Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science.

Our Careers Adviser says

The MSc is a good qualification for careers in bioscience research, or for those wishing to progress to further study (PhD). However, it is primarily aimed at those wishing to work or already working as biomedical scientists in the NHS, where an accredited MSc is integral to career progression.

Note: To obtain the MSc, students will usually take 9 months to gain the Postgraduate Diploma and then normally an additional 3 months of study to gain the MSc, from the date of commencement of the project.

Please note a February intake is available for students studying on a part-time basis
