Course summary

ABOUT THE COURSE

It is a one-year full-time programme designed for both home and international students, with a background in life sciences, who wish to study at postgraduate level for the MSc in Biomedical Blood Science. The programme is open to science graduates who do not meet the academic criteria for a direct entry into the MSc.

The MSc in Biomedical Blood Science is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). The IBMS is the professional body of Biomedical Scientists within the United Kingdom.

The IBMS aims to promote and develop the role of Biomedical Science within healthcare to deliver the best possible service for patient care and safety.

The overall aim is to provide the students with the academic background necessary for the master’s programme and to enable them to develop and practise the subject specific academic skills required for the intensive pace of study at master’s level.

The course also aims to allow international students to benefit from English language support that will help them to develop their academic English language skills

TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT

All modules are assessed within the semester in which they are taught. Most contain elements of both ‘in-course’ assessment (in the form of laboratory reports, essays, and posters) and formal examination, although some are examined by ‘in-course’ assessment alone.
