Normally, you should have a minimum 2:2 honours degree or equivalent, although substantial professional experience may be acceptable when combined with another qualification. We look for graduates with an appropriate honours degree in biomedical subjects, or biological subjects with an appropriate biomedical content. You should have a good standard of written and spoken English (IELTS 6.0 or equivalent).
Months of entry
The course provides a number of optional routes which lead to IBMS (Institute of Biomedical Science)-accredited awards for those currently in, or planning a career in, the Medical Laboratory profession.
The route options are: Cellular Pathology, Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology, Medical Microbiology and a generic route. The course offers you the opportunity to address the developing areas of biomedical science common to all associated disciplines, including recent advances in genetics and immunology, and to equip yourself with the research skills necessary to complement your clinical laboratory responsibilities.
Part-time students study core (and most optional) modules on one full day of the week, minimising the time away from work.
