Biomedical Sciences MSc

Course Description

Course overview

Our masters degree in Biomedical Sciences aims to enhance your knowledge of the scientific basis of pathological processes and resulting disease states, and insight into laboratory diagnostic processes.

You will develop an informed and critical appreciation of recent scientific developments in relation to a range of subject areas within biomedical science. As well as biomedical science, the core modules contain an element of Pharmacology, as a cognately related area. Options are available to gain additional further knowledge in areas such as Diabetes, applied Immunology and medical genetics.

For the final part of the course you will have the chance to put your skills into practice and undertake a substantial research project.

Course structure

This course is one calendar year, full-time, involving 30 weeks of taught modules divided into two 15-week semesters, and a project which is largely carried out during the remaining time.

Subjects taught will include:
• Topics in Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacology
• Topics in Cell Pathology
• Applied Molecular Biology

Examples of optional modules include;
• Diabetes
• Oxidative stress in disease
• Diet and Disease

Specialist disciplines within the field of Biomedical Science include;
• Microbiology
• Haematology
• Clinical Immunology
• Medical Genetics

To qualify for the MSc award you will need to carry out a Research Project during the UK summer period and then submit a 10,000-word dissertation. This is supported by a Research Methods module.

Who is this course for?

This course is designed for those students who wish to further their knowledge of the Biomedical Sciences, without necessarily committing to a career in the hospital laboratory service, although the degree is expected to gain IBMS accreditation so that parts or all of the course can be used for professional purposes.

Entry requirements

The normal academic standard for entry is a good UK honours degree or an equivalent overseas qualification, in biomedical sciences or appropriate life science (e.g. biology, pharmacy), though applications are welcomed from other related subjects and will be considered on an individual basis.
