Months of entry
This course allows you to plan your own taught programme to match your interests and experience by selecting modules from a diverse range of option modules in the Faculty of Science and Technology, with the advice of the course leader. For example, you could combine modules on microbiology and molecular biology or those on haematology and clinical biochemistry.
Alternatively, you can combine basic science with study of the communication or commercialisation of science. We also offer the opportunity to consider the increasing role of automation in diagnostic laboratories. Those studying part time are free to develop their module choices as they progress.
Whatever the combination, you will be able to expand your understanding of human diseases, their investigation and therapy, and develop your competence in the design and execution of a laboratory based project.
