Course content

Biomedical Science involves the study of various biological and medical sciences relevant to our understanding of human health and disease.

This vocationally-oriented course is specifically designed for those students wishing to gain an advanced education in the biomedical science field, either in industry or within the health sector. As such, it leads to a professionally recognised qualification, being externally approved by the Health Professions Council (HPC) and accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

Modules cover a wide range of scientific subjects, information technology and all the major disciplines of biomedical science – i.e. cellular pathology, clinical chemistry, clinical medicine, haematology and transfusion science, histology, immunology, and medical microbiology. MSc students will also complete a Research Dissertation.
