Course content

Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the MSc Advanced Biomedical Science gives you the skills and knowledge to build a career as an NHS biomedical scientist or within bioscience research.

The course aims to give you a balance of theory, practical skills and application of a range of techniques relevant to the biomedical sciences such as medical genetics, immunobiology, and disease pathology. Emphasis is placed on the application of quality and management processes in the improvement of healthcare provision by biomedical laboratories.

Work-based learning modules are available to part-time students completing the IBMS specialist portfolio as an alternative to the discipline-specific modules.

The MSc is a good qualification for careers in bioscience research, or for those wishing to progress to further study (PhD). However, it is primarily aimed at those wishing to work or already working as biomedical scientists in the NHS, where an accredited MSc is integral to career progression.
