Course summary

The MRes Applied Biomedical Sciences Research programme has been designed to serve biomedical, medical, and life sciences graduates wanting to embark on a research degree focussing on human health and disease. As such, it leads to a professionally recognised qualification, being externally approved by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

This programme equips graduates with the skills and subject-specific knowledge needed to pursue a research-based career in academic biomedicine. The programme focuses on laboratory-based clinical research and provides ideal training for students who want to work in the industry, or subsequently wish to move onto a PhD programme, or who simply wish to undertake a significant research project at the Masters level.

Key Course Features

  • Biomedical Science is taught by enthusiastic academic and clinical professional staff in modern, spacious laboratories housed at the newly established North Wales Clinical Research Centre (NWCRC), based at Wrexham, and at Wrexham Glyndŵr University.
  • Teaching and learning involves a range of methods including lectures, seminars, laboratory practical, group discussions and presentations.
  • Experimental work is an integral part of the programme. The academic and clinical staff are research active, and continually strive to promote research within areas of biomedical and clinical sciences, where they regularly publish their research findings and discuss their work at national and international conferences.
  • Blended learning is a feature of this course enabling students to travel for the taught element of the course without having to commit to living in Wrexham or the locality full time. Each module takes the form of a learning package consisting of a three day block of face-to-face teaching supported by online learning. This approach is favoured by employers wishing to release their employees to study while still meeting service needs.

Assessment

Throughout the course, there is coursework, which contributes to your overall marks.

The coursework assessment may focus on laboratory reports, clinical reviews, poster or oral presentations, case studies, essays or data manipulation exercises.

Career Prospects

The skills and knowledge gained on this programme will make you attractive both to employers in the health, pharmaceutical and related industries, and to major academic research centres. The practical skills and knowledge acquired in design, performing and analysing experiments are highly transferable to a wide range of scientific areas.

Students on this programme will be well-placed for careers in biomedical and clinical research, teaching, or to pursue studies towards a PhD, or graduate entry medical degree.
