Course summary

OVERVIEW

Investigating disease at a cellular level means joining the fight against some of the most serious disorders afflicting humans. We’ve designed our MSc Cellular Pathology course to enable you to develop an advanced understanding of cellular pathology that you’ll need in a research or clinical context.

You’ll cover a range of different areas – exploring disorders, developing analytical techniques and getting to grips with histopathology.

You’ll also 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.

Throughout the masters, will have the support of an expert team and access to specialist laboratory facilities.

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.

The subjects you’ll cover will not only help you prepare for the Institute of Biomedical Science higher specialist examination and for the advanced practice that follows but can also lay the groundwork for careers in research or teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD.

You’ll have careers support from the moment you join us and for up to three years after you’ve finished your course.
