An additional English module (English for Academic Purposes) will be offered for non-native English speakers if required. This module will not form part of the overall award, but successful completion is required for progression to the Masters programme.

Modules:
- Biomedical Science and Pathology (30 credits):
The module provides the student with the knowledge and understanding of the pathobiology of human disease associated with Cellular Pathology, Clinical Immunology, Haematology, Clinical Biochemistry, Medical Microbiology and Clinical Virology. It also examines the analytical and clinical functions of three more of the major departments of a modern hospital pathology laboratory, including Haematology, Clinical Pathology, Clinical Immunology, Blood Transfusion, Clinical Biochemistry and Medical Microbiology. In addition, the module will give an accurate insight into the role of Biomedical Scientists and how they assist clinicians in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of disease.

- Biochemistry Research Project (non-experimental) (15 credits):
This module aims to introduce students to some of the key non-experimental research skills that are routinely used by biochemists and biomedical scientists, such as in depth literature searching, analysis of experimental data and the use of a computer as tool for both research (bioinformatics) and dissemination of information (web page construction). The student will research the literature on a specific topic, using library and web based resources and will produce a written review. In addition, the student will either process and interpret some raw experimental data provided to them.

- Advances in Medicine (15 credits):
This module will describe and promote the understanding of advances in medicine that have impacted on diagnosis, treatment, prevention of a range of diseases. It will highlight fast emerging areas of research which are striving to improve diagnosis including nanotechnology and new biochemical tests in the fields of heart disease, cancer and fertility investigations which will potentially improve patient care.

- Clinical Pathology (15 credits):
The majority of staff that contribute to the module are employees of the University Hospital of North Staffordshire (UHNS). Students will benefit from lectures and expertise in Clinical Diagnostic Pathology, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Genetics and Inflammatory Diseases. Students will gain an insight into how patients are managed, from their very first presentation at the UHNS, from the perspective of diagnosis and treatment. The course will cover both standardised testing options and the development of new diagnostic procedures with a particular emphasis on genetic and epigenetic aspects of disease. Students will also gain an appreciation of the cost benefit of particular routes for diagnosis and treatment and the importance of identifying false positive and false negative results. Finally, the students will have the opportunity to perform their own extensive literature review of a disease-related topic that is not covered by the lectures on the course.

- Case Studies in Biomedical Science (15 credits):
This module aims to give you an understanding of the UK health trends and the factors that affect these trends. Through clinical case studies and small group tutorials, you will explore why the UK has some of the highest incidences of certain diseases and conditions in Europe and consider what factors contribute to making them some of the most common and/or rising health problems faced by this country. This will include understanding the relevant socioeconomic factors as well as understanding the bioscience of the disease process and its diagnosis and management. You will also focus on what is being done by Government and the NHS to tackle these major health problems.

- English for Academic Purposes (EAP ):
For non-native English speakers if required

Teaching & Assessment

In addition to the lecture courses and tutorials, problem based learning (PBL) using clinical scenarios is used for at least one module. Students will also be given the opportunity to undertake an independent non-experimental research project, supervised and supported by a member of staff. Web-based learning using the University’s virtual learning environment (KLE) is also used to give students easy access to a wide range of resources and research tools, and as a platform for online discussions and quizzes. Students will be given many opportunities to become familiar with word processing, spreadsheets and graphics software as well as computer-based routes to access scientific literature.

All modules are assessed within the semester in which they are taught. Most contain elements of both ‘in-course’ assessment (in the form of laboratory reports, essays, posters) and formal examination, although some are examined by ‘in-course’ assessment alone.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines we do not anticipate any additional costs for this post graduate programme.

- Applied Clinical Anatomy 1 (core) worth 15 M Level credits. This module will cover histology, embryology, identification of prosections, gross anatomy of various systems, radiology, preserving, and embalming. The gross anatomy will be linked to functional and clinical relevance

- Applied Clinical Anatomy 2 (core) worth 30 M Level credits. Through student-led tutorials, theoretical and practical studies including dissections, the student will cover in-depth, the theoretical and practical aspects of knowledge relating to the student’s chosen anatomical focus

- One option module to the value of 15 credits at Masters Level

There are many Masters Level modules available within the Faculty and the wider University. The Academic Year starts in September, and is divided into two semesters; one core module will be available in each semester. This allows the student the freedom to select an optional module within either semester.

Teaching & Assessment

The programme of study will be delivered through block teaching sessions and self-directed study (See individual modular specification for details of hours etc). Teaching format will be lecturers, seminars, discussions, problem-solving sessions, tutorials, and dissections to address theoretical and practical aspects of applied clinical anatomical knowledge. The student is expected to complete at least double the amount of self directed study.

A variety of modes of assessment are offered. For the Applied Clinical Anatomy 1 module – the student can choose their own mode of assessment from the selection given, for example, assignment, presentation or an interactive practical examination. For the Applied Clinical Anatomy 2, the student will present a portfolio of evidence of their experiential learning during the process of exploring in-depth the theoretical and practical aspects of clinical anatomical knowledge relating to the students chosen field of knowledge. This will include a 4000-word assignment, 4 laboratory reports including such activities as dissections, clinical meetings etc, a 2500 word reflective piece demonstrating experiential learning and finally the evidence of experiential learning.

Additional Costs

Apart from additional costs for text books, inter-library loans and potential overdue library fines we do not anticipate any additional costs for this post graduate programme.

MSc Neuroscience Research Training with International Placement

T he Faculty of Natural Sciences offers a range of MSc programmes in Scientific Research Training which includes an option to undertake an international placement at a institute/industry in which an extensive 8 month research project is undertaken.

Masters in Research Training with International Placement are available in a range of disciplines (see wbesite).

Keele University has developed collaborative relationships with a number of European research institutes and industries which has enabled well qualified students to develop their scientific training and employment skills within an international context. We believe that this will help to develop future employees with an international outlook, competent in a foreign language in addition to English.

Neuroscience Placements‌

All students will spend the first part of the course at Keele, and either remain at Keele to undertake their approximately eight month research project or will undertake a placement in a European research institute/industry as laboratory research assistants, working on projects in the host institution and pursuing a programme of research training. We have links in several countries including Sweden, Poland and Germany. Financial support for example through the EU ERASMUS Scheme may be available to support students undertaking their project/placement outside the UK in Europe. International students may opt to undertake their placement within the UK or at Keele University, and further English language training can be provided.

Entry Requirements

Usually applicants will hold an honours degree in a scientific discipline appropriate to the project area and final postgraduate award, although consideration will be given to related programmes. The minimum degree category for entry is 2:2 (or international equivalent), although consideration will be given to candidates who do not meet these criteria, but can evidence appropriate, alternative professional qualifications and/or experience.

Applicants who are not fluent in English are expected to have attained the equivalent of an IELTS score of at least 6.5. Candidates who do not meet these criteria, but can evidence appropriate, alternative professional qualifications and/or experience will be considered.

Distinctive Keele Curriculum

MSc programmes at Keele offers the added value of the Distinctive Keele Curriculum (DKC), which develops students' intellectual, personal and professional capabilities (Keele Graduate Attributes) through both subject-specific and generic workshops and activities.
