About the course

The aim of this programme is to prepare you for the next stage of your career, whether pursuing further research or professional study, or entering employment in the field of Biomedical Science. The course can also enhance the career prospects of those aspiring to middle and senior management positions within the NHS Pathology Service and commercial sector. 

The course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). Please note accreditation of a postgraduate degree course by the IBMS is not the same as accreditation of an undergraduate degree for HCPC State Registration. Completion of this postgraduate degree will not fulfil the education criteria for State Registration as a Biomedical Scientist with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). Please check with the appropriate bodies that the course you plan to follow will be suitable for any professional accreditation you may require. 

Students on this course will share many of the formal teaching and practical sessions with students on the MSc Clinical Microbiology and MSc Clinical Science (Infection Science) courses, allowing inter-professional learning, but each course has its' own unique additional teaching, electronic learning resources and assessments.
