The course is designed to give graduates specialist knowledge (both theoretical and practical) of the strategies and techniques of clinical biochemistry as practised in research and clinical contexts. Graduates will gain up-to-date, relevant and applied experience of clinical biochemistry, acquire in-depth knowledge together with a broad knowledge of the subject base and acquire skills for practice at Higher Specialist Level. The completion of a research project enables the graduate to understand the process and communication of scientific enquiry.
Re-accreditation by the Institute of Biomedical Science is in progress.
- Analytical Techniques in Biomedical Science - Recent Advances in Biomedical Research - Research Methods and Ethics in Biomedical Science - Disorder Case Study - Research Project - Diagnostic Clinical Biochemistry - General Clinical Biochemistry - Specialist Clinical Biochemistry
You will be assessed by critical reviews, presentations, self-managed study, extended essays and examinations. Evidence based practice and a major research project complete the MSc.
The programme creates wide-ranging opportunities for employment in fields such as hospital science, biomedical and pharmaceutical industries or public health and transfusion laboratories. It provides preparation for the Higher Specialist Institute of Biomedical Science examination and Advanced Practice in Biomedical Science. You will also be well placed for careers in research or teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD.
At least an upper second-class UK Honours degree (or international equivalent) in biological or biomedical science is usually required. Alternatively, you may be admitted with an equivalent professional qualification or significant relevant proven professional experience. Existing Fellows of the Institute of Biomedical Science are eligible for exemption from certain units of study. Students applying with HNC medical laboratory science plus 10 years' experience will be considered on an individual basis.
Full-time UK/EU £6,930. Non-EU international £13,300. Part-time UK/EU £1,155 per 30 credit unit. MSc = 180 credits.
