Course summary


As key contributors to modern healthcare, including disease diagnosis, monitoring of therapy and research into disease mechanisms, specialist and senior biomedical scientists are in great demand both within the NHS and private hospital laboratories.

You can now study this course via multiple pathways:

Haematology and Blood Transfusion Sciences pathway
Haematology and Blood Transfusion Sciences pathway with Professional Experience
Clinical Biochemistry and Immunology pathway
Clinical Biochemistry and Immunology pathway with Professional Experience
Infection Science pathway
Infection Science pathway with Professional Experience

Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) for the 2021/22 intake, this master’s course offers you the chance to focus your studies by selecting one of three specific course pathways – Haematology and Blood Transfusion Science, Clinical Biochemistry and Immunology, or Infection is course aims to advance your skills and knowledge in laboratory management, together with modern scientific developments, such as genomics and stem cell technology.

Course information

This master’s course aims to provide an in-depth understanding of disease processes, from the molecular to the body/systems level, alongside the practical applications of biomedical science and recent scientific developments in diagnostic laboratory pathology.

The programme is composed of a combination of modules which upon successful completion build to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) Biomedical Science, master’s (MSc) Biomedical Science, or as MSc Biomedical Science with Professional Experience. On the MSc course (with or without Professional Experience) you can choose one of three specialist pathways all of which aim to advance your knowledge and link to the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) specialist training portfolio: Clinical Haematology and Blood Transfusion; Clinical Biochemistry and Immunology; and Infection Science. Part-time study is available for all programmes except if you choose to study the MSc with professional experience.

This biomedical science course includes the opportunity to gain extensive hands on experience in the laboratory, including use of diagnostic instruments encountered in a clinical setting and contemporary techniques in molecular biology. You should appraise current developments in genomics and regenerative medicine and their application to biomedical science, and explore the professional requirements for laboratory management including quality assurance, laboratory accreditation and regulation.

An additional exciting and innovative feature of this course is the inclusion of a module focussed on Entrepreneurship and Strategic Leadership. This module should enable you to understand and apply business management principles in problem-based scenarios. This should give you added skills and promotes innovative thinking which can be applied in many sectors of life, including biomedical science laboratories. This Entrepreneurship and Strategic Leadership module is accredited by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and students who successfully complete the module and meet CMI evidence requirements can gain a Level 7 certificate in Strategic Leadership and Management. Please see Accreditation and Professional Recognition section.

Career prospects
