Course content

The MSc in Biomedicine at Lancaster offers an intensive, 12-month programme in a world-class environment with teaching and supervision by research-active staff. We aim to develop your intellectual, practical and transferable skills as you obtain a highly sought-after postgraduate qualification.

We are passionate advocates of academic curiosity and lifelong learning. The programme combines taught modules with a substantial dissertation research project, each making up half of the required points for assessment. This dual approach consolidates crucial skills whilst offering the flexibility to pursue a semi-independent research agenda.

The MSc lectures and workshops are aligned with the Division of Biomedical and Life Sciences core research themes and showcase the wide diversity of biomedical research; we use them to explore its application to human health and disease.

The course focuses on several hot topics in biomedicine including global health, cancer biology, diseases of the brain, infectious disease, drug discovery and biomedical ethics – these provide a springboard for your independent research project. Your dissertation provides you with the opportunity to produce a robust scientific argument, to formulate and test hypotheses and to assess contrasting scientific theories.

As well as obtaining practical experience of cutting-edge techniques during your research project, you will improve your autonomous problem-solving and decision-making skills. Throughout the degree, you will be applying the principles of biomedical ethics, and learning techniques that will enable you to experiment during scientific problem-solving exercises. Our academic staff will also encourage, support and guide you to ensure that you graduate with increased competence and confidence.

Our graduates are highly-regarded for their communication skills, analytical ability, confidence in critical evaluation, and their competence in interpreting data in a biomedical context. This opens doors to careers in the NHS, industry, government, and charities. Our MSc programme also provides an excellent grounding for those who wish to pursue further academic research at PhD level.
