The team delivering the course have an exceptional research profile, particularly in oncology, molecular medicine, immunology and virology. Specialist guest lecturers will add their own enlightenment and passion to a fascinating schedule.

The course aims to:
-Provide you with advanced study of biomedical science, which underpins professional progression and development
-Provide a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of disease processes
-Develop an informed and critical appreciation of recent scientific developments in relation to diagnostic laboratory pathology
-Enable you, where options are available, to gain additional specialist knowledge in areas such as ageing, epidemiology and medical genetics
-Enhance your intellectual development throughout the research project and dissertation

Students undertake a variety of assessment methods including case studies, literature evaluations, self diagnostic testing, debates, group work, presentations, coursework, essays, and cumulative exams.

Practical skills are summatively assessed through the coursework assignments, including those in the final Project module.

Data handling skills are assessed by, practical reports, problem solving exercises, information abstracting and reviewing exercises, poster presentations, exams and seminar presentations.

Moving to one campus

Between 2016 and 2020 we're investing £125 million in the London Metropolitan University campus, moving all of our activity to our current Holloway campus in Islington, north London. This will mean the teaching location of some courses will change over time.

Whether you will be affected will depend on the duration of your course, when you start and your mode of study. The earliest moves affecting new students will be in September 2017. This may mean you begin your course at one location, but over the duration of the course you are relocated to one of our other campuses. Our intention is that no full-time student will change campus more than once during a course of typical duration.

All students will benefit from our move to one campus, which will allow us to develop state-of-the-art facilities, flexible teaching areas and stunning social spaces.
