We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Despite these uncertain times, we can be certain that the need to advance our scientific knowledge will never cease. Tackling global pandemics is part of a science field where brilliant minds are unlocking genomic codes, finding cures for major diseases and discovering more about life. As we readjust to a different world, we’re going to see more research invested into science as we seek novel ways to protect and preserve life.
Taking a leading approach to biomedical and life science teaching and research, Salford has invested in advanced facilities that support pioneering research and knowledge exchange. We’ve developed a range of professionally-accredited postgraduate courses for science graduates and professionals that can expand knowledge of global health challenges or provide a focus for specialist parts of life science.
Learn more about Parasitology, explore Biotechnology, go deeper into Biomedical Science, or make breakthroughs in Drug Design and Discovery. If the pandemic has sparked your interest in how we manage a response, consider Health and Global Environment. However you choose to enhance your science skills, it will be will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
At Salford, we nurture science postgraduates with high levels of academic ability, strategic thinking and a global perspective. Driven by industry, we’re guided by real-world health challenges to ensure that we shape degree courses that build the skills and knowledge needed by the science and health professions to make a difference.
Our biomedical and life science postgraduate programmes are informed by research-active staff, with expertise in heart and lung disease, cancer biology, drug development and infectious diseases. Learning approaches integrate with health care providers (NHS) and industrial real-world environments, to equip you with the confidence and ability to apply new knowledge.
From our advanced Bodmer Laboratories, you’ll have access to instrumentation including cell culture facilities, FACS, MALDI-TOF, LC and GC mass spectrometry, FTIR and FTNMR spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. In gaining familiarity with industry-standard technology, you’ll be better prepared for your new career role.
As the first UK university to introduce sandwich placements on degree courses back in 1949, we know all about the benefits of combined work and study. If you’re thinking about this pathway, we offer part-time study for up to three years across all of our science-based postgraduate courses, so you can reach your learning goals whilst you keep your current commitments.
