Our course is specifically designed to provide you with a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of clinical biochemistry as conducted within the modern health science laboratory.
In particular, the MSc will develop your academic, practical, professional and communication skills so you can seamlessly integrate into - and form a productive part of - a health service laboratory team.
The course is suitable for graduates in biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, pharmacy, medicine and other biological subjects that contain elements of biochemistry and/or physiology. Graduates in chemistry are accepted onto the programme, but do have to have studied significant elements of biochemistry and/or physiology during their undergraduate degree. An honours degree (Upper Second minimum) or overseas equivalent is required for direct entry to the programme. Flexibility on entry requirements will be considered for candidates with proven appropriate professional experience. Under these circumstances, candidates will be considered on an individual basis and may be required to enrol initially on the Diploma track.
