This University of East London's course is carefully tailored to maximise your employability within bioscience and offers an unrivalled range of professional expertise and top class facilities. You will learn both practical and theoretical aspects of clinical chemistry, medical microbiology, cellular pathology and haematology. It will offer you the chance to study a core MSc alongside a specialisation within different areas of Biosciences.
Teaching will be based on lectures, seminars, workshops, independent web-based learning and laboratory-based learning in our state-of-the-art facilities. The broad field of learning also suits people who are simply interested in furthering their knowledge of the subject. The Biomedical Science course can be worked around a full-time job and there are intermediate awards available a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate.
Our broad-based course spans the whole area of biomedical science, offering elements that include immunology, clinical chemistry and microbiology.
This equips you with valuable extra knowledge for working in the sector, or a wide choice from which to pick a direction for further research.
As a graduate of this course you could expect to pursue a career as a biomedical scientist in the National Health Service. Such posts are available in hospitals and NHS ancillary services such as the Health Protection Agency and the National Blood Transfusion Service throughout the UK.
The NHS is rapidly improving the career structure in these jobs. And we have excellent connections in this area.
Biomedical scientists are also sought after by industry and many also work in academic research in universities or research institutes.
As in other areas of biology, the cutting edge of research in medicine is primarily focused at the molecular level, using the recently developed – and constantly improving – techniques in molecular biology, genomics and proteomics.
For your MSc, you will need to complete the three core taught modules – Biology of Disease 1 and 2, and Research Skills – plus one optional module. You will then complete a research project.
For the PG Diploma, which can also be studied either full or part-time, you will need to complete four taught modules including one optional.
To obtain the PG Certificate – one year part-time – you must complete both the Biology of Disease modules.
The optional modules are Immunology and Bioinformatics, though you will need to take them if you have not already studied Immunology at degree level.
