Our best defence against disease isn’t a new therapy, wonder drug or technological miracle. It’s knowledge. On our MSc Clinical Biochemistry course, you will gain the technical skills and in-depth understanding to explore, harness and add to that knowledge.
It’s a masters course that offers both a theoretical understanding of clinical biochemistry concepts, together with the practical techniques to apply those theories in research – equipping you for practice at specialist level.
You’ll study a range of units, taking a systematic approach to disorders, developing expert analytical techniques and exploring the essential concepts around general, specialist and diagnostic clinical biochemistry.
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 this clinical biochemistry masters course, you 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. Overview
The course can pave the way to a wide range of opportunities in areas like hospital science, biomedical and pharmaceutical industries. The subjects you’ll cover will not only help you prepare for the Institute of Biomedical Science higher specialist examination, and the advanced practice that follows, but can also lay the groundwork for careers in research or teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD.
Our work with the NHS and clinicians helps us keep our curriculum up to date and clinically relevant, ensuring that our graduates have the skills and knowledge which are vital for the workplace – and sought after by employers.
You’ll have careers support from the moment you join us and for up to three years after you’ve finished your course. We offer a range of services, both in the Department of Life Sciences and through the University’s Careers Service, including dedicated careers and employability advisers you can turn to for guidance and support.
