Course summary

Developed in collaboration with Betsi Cadwaldr University Health Board (BCUHB) the MSc in Biomedical Science gives students the opportunity to develop their research skills, explore specialist areas, and complete an independent research project integrating the study of the biology of disease, including modern concepts and applications of biomedical science in research, diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders.

Students will:

  • Develop the skills for practice at Higher Specialist Level
  • Use state of the art equipment, such as flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy and molecular analysers at the newly established BCUHB North Wales Clinical Research Centre (NWCRC)
  • Develop existing knowledge while improving analytical skills by undertaking laboratory-based investigations employing sophisticated and advanced biomedical methodology.
  • Gain a professionally recognised qualification, being externally accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

Key Course Features

  • Biomedical Science is taught by enthusiastic academic and clinical professional staff in modern, spacious laboratories housed at the newly established North Wales Clinical Research Centre (NWCRC), based at Wrexham, and at Wrexham Glyndŵr University.
  • Teaching and learning involves a range of methods including lectures, seminars, laboratory practical, group discussions and presentations.
  • Experimental work is an integral part of the programme. The academic and clinical staff are research active, and continually thrive to promote research within areas of biomedical and clinical sciences, where they regularly publish their research findings and discuss their work at national and international conferences.
  • Blended learning is a feature of this course enabling students to travel for the taught element of the course without having to commit to living in Wrexham or the locality full time. Each module takes the form of a learning package consisting of a three day block of face-to-face teaching supported by online learning. This approach is favoured by employers wishing to release their employees to study while still meeting service needs.

Assessment

Throughout the course, there is coursework, which contributes to your overall marks.

The coursework assessment may focus on laboratory reports, clinical reviews, poster or oral presentations, case studies, essays or data manipulation exercises.

Career Prospects

The programme creates wide-ranging opportunities for employment in fields such as hospital pathology laboratories (NHS and private sector), biomedical and pharmaceutical industries, or public health laboratories.

It provides preparation for the Institute of Biomedical Science Higher Specialist examination, Advanced Practice in Biomedical Science, and those wishing to enhance the career prospects of those aspiring to middle and senior management positions within the NHS.

Students on this programme will also be well placed for careers in research, teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD or graduate entry medical degree.
