Exciting new MSc programmes in Biological and Biomedical Sciences

13 February 2014

As a result of the current review of our Masters programmes in Biological and Biomedical Sciences, we are delighted to announce some changes to our postgraduate portfolio for September 2014.

MSc Biomedical Sciences will offer two new pathways in Cancer Biology and Immunology in addition to our established pathways of Cellular Pathology, Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology and Medical Microbiology.

We also offer another new programme, MSc Applied Biomedical Science, intended to meet the Supplementary Education requirements of the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) for graduates needing to ‘top up’ a non-IBMS accredited undergraduate degree (BSc). As a combination of ‘top up’ and extended studies, it offers an attractive career enhancing course of study for part-time students working towards Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration.

MSc Medical Molecular Biology will now offer two pathways, one general and an additional Bioinformatics pathway for students wishing to explore the use of cutting edge tools.

Our updated MSc Pharmacology provides an insight into pharmacology, bioinformatics and toxicology with our new degree, MSc Medicinal Plant Science, allowing for development of analytical skills whilst both degrees provide knowledge of research and development of novel pharmacological agents.

Our established programme in Biotechnology, which has been extensively updated, complements these new programmes. The MSc Applied Biotechnology includes a wide range of modern molecular biology techniques and how biotechnology can be used by today’s society.

Course listings are being updated, for further information please contact individual course leaders, contact details can found on the course pages – Biomedical Sciences and Biosciences.
