Course summary

This course will provide you with a comprehensive three-part postgraduate life sciences training. Firstly, unlike many Biomedical Sciences Master courses, we offer you dedicated training in a broad suite of bioinformatics and practical laboratory skills. These will not only be great preparation for future research careers, but also a way to make the most of your summer research project. Secondly, our taught classes capture the excitement of cutting-edge research fields.

The substantial choice of classes means that you'll get to select a clinical-oriented or basic life science research pathway to suit your future aspirations. Together, the course provides the perfect springboard to future training at PhD level or gives you a range of experience that will prove attractive to employers from industry or the health-care provision sector.

Assessment

Assessment of taught classes is through multiple choice tests, computer quizzes, problem solving scenarios, poster and oral presentations, essays, and formal written exams. The laboratory project is assessed through a written thesis.

Our graduates

Biomedical scientists work in healthcare to diagnose disease and evaluate the effectiveness of treatment through the analysis of fluids and tissue samples from patients.

They work at the heart of modern medicine, with 70% of diagnoses based on the pathology results provided by laboratory services.

After graduating you should be ideally qualified for positions in biomedical and pharmaceutical industries as well as hospitals and universities.
