Course content

This course is designed for those following careers as biomedical

scientists in the wider context of biomedical science (including

biopharmaceutical and bio-industries). The MSc Biomedical

Science provides eligibility for the title of chartered scientist if

the individual meets the other eligibility criteria of corporate

membership of the IBMS and active engagement in continued

professional development (CPD). It is not a suitable qualification

pharmaceutical or bio-industries. Students can take specialisms

in: cellular pathology; clinical chemistry; haematology; and

medical microbiology. The course is completely online. The

supervisor. Suitably qualified graduates may also choose

to proceed to higher postgraduate degree programmes within

the biosciences.
