Course summary

OVERVIEW

The best defence against disease isn’t a new therapy, wonder drug or technological miracle. It’s knowledge. With our MSc Biomedical Science course, you will gain the technical skills and in-depth understanding to explore, harness and add to that knowledge.

It’s a masters course that offers a broad base of understanding and the opportunity to investigate specialist areas of biomedical science. As well as units offering advanced analytical techniques and an in-depth understanding of different aspects of disease, you will explore areas that match your personal interests and career ambitions.

You’ll complete an independent research project, building professional-level research skills. This is your opportunity to explore the issues that fascinate you – making the most of our extensive links with hospitals across Greater Manchester to conduct research in clinically relevant areas in a real-world context.

Our course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) which means our teaching is of a high standard and provides wide-ranging, research-informed education to ensure you develop the practical skills and experience that employers’ value. Please note, that although this MSc is accredited by the IBMS it does not fulfil the requirements to gaining registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and does not provide the opportunity to complete the IBMS Registration Training Portfolio. Please visit the IBMS website for more information and advice on HCPC registration.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This masters offers an avenue into a range of specialist fields, such as biomedical and pharmaceutical industries. The subjects you’ll cover can also lay the groundwork for careers in research or teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD.

Our work with the NHS and clinicians helps shape our curriculum, transfers our expertise and ensures our graduates are ready for the workplace - and sought after by employers.

Careers support is available from the moment you join us, throughout your time here, and for up to three years after the completion of your course. We have a range of services available through the Department of Life Sciences and the University Careers Service including dedicated careers and employability advisors.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.
