About the course

Delve into the biological aspects of disease, specialist understanding and clinically relevant research that can shape new diagnostic procedures and aspects of therapy.

The best defence against disease isn’t a new therapy, wonder drug or technological miracle. It’s knowledge. With our MSc Biomedical Science course, you will gain the technical skills and in-depth understanding to explore, harness and add to that knowledge.

It’s a masters course that offers a broad base of understanding and the opportunity to investigate specialist areas of biomedical science. As well as units offering advanced analytical techniques and an in-depth understanding of different aspects of disease, you will explore areas that match your personal interests and career ambitions.

Student Profile(s)

Dr Nadia Ali

I was born in Iraq and moved to Jordan to complete my school and undergraduate education. I then travelled to the UK with my husband and settled in Manchester to continue my study at Manchester Metropolitan University.

I’ve enjoyed every minute. Manchester is a very good place to study and live. It is a multicultural city with all the wonderful facilities you would expect to find in a modern city: childcare, a diverse range of schools and places of worship, public libraries, healthcare facilities, sports and leisure centres, retail outlets, parks and public spaces. Equally, the University has excellent facilities: the labs and equipment here are first class.

The core subject of my study was about the effect of the drug simvastatin – an inhibitor of cholesterol – on advanced glycation, the main culprit in diabetes. Having completed my PhD, I am now working at the University as an associate lecturer supporting first year healthcare science students.

I have always wanted to work in academic and research fields. It is an exciting job with many opportunities to learn new skills. Next I would like to work as a postdoctoral researcher in biomedical science.

Working as a team is very enjoyable especially when it comes to assisting students and programme leaders. My preference is to stay in the training field at the University. Teaching is something I am passionate about. I enjoy teaching students and I learn from them everyday
