You research and identify potential therapeutic and clinical strategies to reduce the effect of these risk factors on disease states. You develop skills for employability including good laboratory practice, control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH) assessments, health and safety policies, Human Tissues Act, quality assurance and patient care. You also develop transferable skills including verbal and poster presentations, written reports, independent research and team working skills. This course includes an integrated foundation year - ideal if you need additional preparation in the fundamental sciences and/or if you haven’t sufficient tariff points to join Level 4 (Year 1) of the Cert HE directly.
