Course content

Qualify for a career in the biomedical sector with this new masters programme designed in conjunction with local industry.

  • Embark on a course that will give you a competitive advantage
  • Learn technical and practical skills with a focus on employability
  • Familiarise yourself with current technologies relevant to the biomedical sciences sector
  • Focus on current advances in research

This new masters programme aims to produce graduates who can address the skills shortage in the UK life sciences industry. The North West of England is a growth region for life sciences and this programme will create graduates who are up-to-date with advances in new technologies relevant to the sector.

The programme was developed in consultation with representatives from the Biopharma and Biomedical sector. These representatives will be involved in programme delivery, offering industry-focused lectures, discussing career progression and opportunities with students.

The curriculum is research-led and the latest sector advances will be explored in student-focussed seminars. Personalised medicine is a key focus of the course; you will gain an in-depth understanding of genomics, the genetic basis of disease and explore new approaches to diagnosis and novel therapeutics in the treatment and management of diseases.

Biomedical Sciences is a multi-disciplinary subject and the staff who teach on the programme reflect this with a broad range of expertise. An open-door policy means that tutor support is available when you need it, whether you require assistance with ongoing studies or information on future career options.
