Course content

This programme is designed for professionals in health and related areas, such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, who wish to acquire knowledge and understanding of molecular biology and its impact on biomedicine and related disciplines. It introduces you to recent advances made in the study of disease, with the emphasis on how advanced molecular technologies inform and impact upon clinical practice.
The theory is delivered using the online Blackboard virtual learning environment that provides the flexibility of studying at your own pace and from any location in the world. You will interact with other students on the course through online discussion groups and receive excellent support from your tutors who are only an email or phone call away.

Workshops at our Stoke-on-Trent campus enable you to put your learning into practice by applying molecular techniques to diagnostic and analytical practice in our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities.

The full programme incorporates the PgC Molecular Basis of Disease and PgD Molecular Biology for Health Professionals as qualifications in their own right or as step-off points on the way to achieving the MSc.
