This course allows you to plan your own taught programme to match your interests and experience by selecting modules from a diverse range of option modules from a diverse range offered by the biosciences masters course in the in the Faculty of Science and Technology, with the advice of the Course Leader. For example, you could combine modules on microbiology and molecular biology or those on haematology and clinical chemistry.
Alternatively, you can combine basic science with study of the communication or commercialisation of science. We also offer the opportunity to consider the increasing role of automation in diagnostic laboratories. Those studying part time are free to develop their module choices as they progress.
Whatever the combination, you will be able to expand your understanding of human diseases, their investigation and therapy, and develop your competence in the design and execution of a laboratory-based project.
The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course.

You will develop a range of transferable skills that will enhance your employment prospects and your research opportunities in the UK or overseas. This course has a diverse intake pf both full and part-time home/EU students range from recent graduates top those working in diagnostic laboratories who wish to gain additional qualification while our international students often have experience in biomedical science laboratories and following completion of their studies will return to their home countries pursue promotion or research opportunities.
The course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). However students interested in gaining professional registration should consider our Applied Biomedical Science MSc.
