Biomedical Science MSc


Course Description

This course is designed for biology, medicine, biomedical and life sciences graduates, keen to develop their knowledge in a city renowned for its medical landmarks.

About this course

You will carry out studies of biomedical science, develop a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of disease processes and enhance intellectual development throughout research projects.

The team delivering the course have an exceptional research profile, particularly in oncology, molecular medicine, immunology and virology. Specialist guest lecturers will add their own enlightenment and passion to a fascinating schedule.

The course aims to:

‌• provide you with advanced study of biomedical science, which underpins professional progression and development
‌• provide a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of disease processes
‌• develop an informed and critical appreciation of recent scientific developments in relation to diagnostic laboratory pathology
‌• enable you, where options are available, to gain additional specialist knowledge in areas such as ageing, epidemiology and medical genetics
• enhance your intellectual development throughout the research project and dissertation

Assessment

Students undertake a variety of assessment methods including case studies, literature evaluations, self diagnostic testing, debates, group work, presentations, coursework, essays, and cumulative exams.

Practical skills are summatively assessed through the coursework assignments, including those in the final Project module.

Data handling skills are assessed by, practical reports, problem solving exercises, information abstracting and reviewing exercises, poster presentations, exams and seminar presentations.

Professional accreditation

Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the professional body of Biomedical Scientists.

Modular structure

The MSc is a one year, full-time course involving 30 weeks of taught modules divided into two 15-week semesters. The part-time mode follows a similar pattern over two years. You take four taught core modules and two optional taught modules.

Core modules:

‌• Advanced Immunology
‌• Biomedical Diagnostics
‌• Integrated Pathology

Pravin Poddar

3157.jpg “I completed my bachelor's degree in Medical Lab Technology in 2003 and was awarded a Distinction with 80% from the College of Allied Health Sciences, Manipal University, Manipal, India. I was active in indoor sports and I organised a "Lab Med 2002" workshop focused on laboratory medicine.

I started my own pathological lab in Kathmandu which offers various diagnostic tests. I am also a member of local NGOs working in the health sector and I've worked as a volunteer with them, helping people with medical problems and helping them in laboratory set ups. I became inspired to study biomedical sciences further because of the available facility in the diagnostic field in Nepal is very poor and knowledge at a higher level is required to upgrade the field.

I found London Met's Biomedical Sciences MSc course online. I required assistance with the fees so I applied for a scholarship and was delighted when I was awarded one. I feel fortunate in that there are many really good professors who are always around to help and will spend time with you and also I am very pleased with the resources in the new Science Centre. I am going to do my final research project on the study of stress genes and their effects on vascular inflammatory markers in a large twin cohort at St. George's Hospital, London.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies, listening to music and cooking food. After I finish my Masters course I hope to take the PhD and implement the knowledge back in Nepal to improve the health facilities there and help my countrymen and women. Also, I aim to set up a research laboratory in Nepal.”

Peter Ngomba

3158.jpg Peter Ngomba was selected by the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) as a Biomedical Scientist, after completing the Biomedical Science MSc at London Met.

"My father was a policeman and my mum is a nurse, so I had always imagined myself working in this sort of environment, halfway between the uniformed services and the medical profession," said Peter.

"The selection [for the RAMC] was really tough - they really put you through an intense programme, both physically and emotionally and I am the one chosen from 47 candidates. I will spend around three months at Winchester doing military and leadership training before being posted somewhere, which might be Afghanistan or anywhere else in the world. My fiancée is currently working in Shenyang, China, teaching English, so we are going to be something of an international couple for the foreseeable future!

My long term aim is to specialise within the RAMC as a military haematologist, with emphasis on blood cancer and the poisoning impacts of military conflicts, particularly as they affect children."

Ndi Andre Ngwai

3159.jpg "I was formerly a Research Associate in the Malaria Research Laboratory of the University of Buea Cameroon. Faced with a lot of challenges in research techniques, my dream was to pursue an MSc in Biomedical Sciences in order to get acquainted with biomedical techniques that are fast, sensitive and accurate and of paramount importance in both research and healthcare. I applied to London Metropolitan University for it has the necessary financial and human resources to make my dream come true.

The MSc programme is academically rigorous and professionally relevant with students trained to be able to meet up with the demands of the job market. All lectures are complemented with practical sessions and the laboratories are very well equipped. Just a few months into the programme, my research skills as well as diagnostic acumen have significantly improved. I enjoy a cordial relationship with all the teaching and administrative staff.

London Metropolitan University has given me the opportunity to live and study with students from other nationalities and different cultures in an atmosphere of peace, love and international friendship. This is required of all the future leaders of this global world. I shall forever be indebted to London Metropolitan University."
