Course Summary

This programme enables biomedical scientists currently employed in NHS pathology service labs to attain greater expertise and advance to the next stage of their careers. This course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). With part-time study, the programme takes two to three years to complete.

Through this programme, hospital laboratory employees can progress through Agenda for Change bandings and fulfil the required qualifications to become a Chartered Scientist (CSci). The curriculum uses an integrated systems approach to study disease. You'll build a strong foundation through broad inquiry: Advanced study of pathophysiology; Laboratory management and research methods; Research planning.

This career-focused programme helps working scientists advance to a leadership level. You'll learn about the latest developments in the field, explore cutting-edge findings and their implications for the future and gain hands-on skills in quality and laboratory management. The programme's real-world relevant curriculum means graduates are fully prepared for success as top-level leaders. Our alumni bring a global outlook - and a focus on the common good - to make meaningful change wherever they go.

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills. Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

The learning and teaching methods we use ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centred, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers. We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.
