Instrumental and environmental analysis

Students will learn a variety of instrumental analysis techniques suitable for ecologists interested in environmental analysis and those studying a wide variety of aquatic and terrestrial habitats – not just wetlands. The theory, practical use and basic maintenance of the instruments will be covered, along with sample collection and analysis.

The lab and field based techniques covered include:

pH, conductivity and Redox potential
Greenhouse gas (GHG) collection and analysis using a gas chromatograph (GC) and infra-red gas analysis (IRGA)
Cation and anion concentration analysis using ion chromatography (IC)
Stable isotope analysis with an isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS)

Wetland-based research project

The research project comprises a third of the MSc and is supervised by research active staff with excellent publication record and experience in their field.
Career Options

Students choosing this MSc will enjoy a modular course that will teach both the practical and theoretical aspects of wetland science and conservation. Successful students will therefore develop the skills and experience required to enable progression onto PhD studies in a wide-range of biological, biogeochemical, environmental and conservation based subjects.

The course will also allow students to seek employment in areas related to wetlands, soil science, water treatment and quality, conservation and environmental consultancy.

This MSc is for biomedical scientists registered with the Health and Care Professions Council wishing to undertake flexible, part-time study towards a masters qualification in a specialist area of clinical pathology.

The degree programme has been informed by consultation with laboratory managers and NHS training staff. It consists of specialist modules in the cellular sciences that explore the theoretical, applied and professional aspects of clinical histopathology and cytopathology.

Designed to complement the professional qualifications of the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the course allows you to expand your knowledge and skills in diagnostic laboratory medicine; to apply these skills to clinical diagnosis, laboratory management and research; and to develop as a reflective practitioner, all within the context of the Modernising Scientific Careers (MSC) initiative.

Course structure

You will attend university for a maximum of one day per week. A typical week consists of six hours of teaching time (lectures, seminars and workshops) and a further six hours of student-centred learning, for example directed reading and assessment preparation.

Assessment methods vary between modules, but all contain coursework assignments such as essays and presentations, while only some have examination components.

The course is designed to be flexible and to fit in with your personal and professional circumstances. For example, you can study the blood sciences modules alone to qualify for a PGCert, take additional modules for a PGDip or commit to the research project for the full MSc.

The MSc qualification is normally achieved after three years of part-time study.

Areas of study

You will study:

• two cellular sciences modules: exploring theoretical, applied and professional aspects of clinical histopathology and cytopathology
• two modules that focus on the professional area of practice and work-based learning to deepen your knowledge of biomedical science. These modules are only available to part-time students who are employed in clinical pathology departments
• applied molecular biology modules
• service delivery in clinical pathology modules
• a special topic option: you can select a topic from a range available in the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences; examples include diabetes, biomedical statistics, and oxidative stress and human disease
• research methods module: you will focus on research methods and project design. This module includes preparation for the research project
• a laboratory-based research project: so you can explore the discipline of blood sciences in depth. The project is based on a topic within blood sciences and includes work conducted in the clinical pathology laboratory workplace.

You will study some of the listed modules with students from the Infection Sciences and Blood Sciences masters, allowing for a multidisciplinary environment where different perspectives on clinical pathology can be shared.
