About Cellular Pathology
Masters degrees in Cellular Pathology equip postgraduates with the skills to detect, study and treat the effects and nature of diseases within cellular structures of the human body.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Biomedical Science and Clinical Oncology. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Medicine or Biology.
Cytopathology covers a whole realm of diseases within many parts of the human body. As such, the training you’ll receive on these courses provides you with a wealth of career opportunities.
For example, you may want to specialise in the treatment of cancer cells within the body, ultimately practising within specialised treatment units to detect and treat cancer. This could include undertaking research in a research institute, or practising clinical medicine.
Alternatively, you might focus your studies on the treatment of certain infectious diseases such as STIs (particularly HIV). Knowledge developed within this area of the field may open opportunities within medicine, community care and charity work.
You may also wish to specialise in certain kinds of cell collection for sampling, research and diagnosis purposes. These include exfoliative cytology, intervention cytology and sediment cytology.

Cellular pathology is the study of structural and functional changes in cells, tissues and organs that underlie disease. It is a dynamic, fast-evolving specialism which saves many lives by providing rational clinical care and therapy in the fight against many serious diseases, particularly cancer.
This course is delivered by specialists, who are engaged in cutting-edge research, and a variety of visiting specialist lecturers, ranging from Hospital Consultants to Senior Biomedical Scientists.
This programme equips you with both an advanced theoretical understanding of the subject and the practical skills that you’ll need for tackling cellular pathology in a research or clinical context at higher specialist level.
Develop your scientific skills and explore new specialisms. If you’re a working biomedical scientist take a step towards being a Chartered Scientist status by studying on our Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited distance-learning course.
Biomed Online is aimed at employees across the health sector who want to keep abreast of the latest developments in biomedical science, healthcare management and related subjects.
The MSc Biomedical Science course is aimed at students who want to take their biomedical science skills and knowledge to a higher level.
The course is primarily designed for career advancement for those working as Biomedical Scientists in the hospital sector or working in the wider discipline of biomedical science, including bio-pharmaceutical and bio-industries.
We offer taught MSc courses in civil and environmental engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, engineering management, oil, gas and shipping, and mechanical engineering. You can also study an MSc by research or an MPhil/PhD.
