  • Objectives
    -To provide a thorough understanding of the basic principles of analysis, including design of sampling programme, pre-treatment, data handling and the instrumentation used in modern analysis. -To help you think critically and make informed choices between proposed analytical techniques, methods and instruments. -To enable you to interpret data. -To teach the principles of quality control and assurance. -To enable you to apply your knowledge to the practical solution of real analytical problems. -To provide familiarity with current analytical literature to enable you to review, select, read and critically discuss the papers most relevant to a particular topic. -To train you in the methods of experimental design and the creation of new methods, novel modifications or combinations of existing methods. -To provide experience of handling and interpreting a wide range of analytical data. -To develop the techniques of communication, including report writing, poster and oral presentation. -To help you develop independent study techniques. As most of our students aim to improve their employment prospects the syllabus is closely matched to current industrial needs. We also provide additional assistance in finding employment.

  • Academic Title
    Analytical Bioscience MSc
  • Course description

    Analytical Bioscience investigates the development and application of advanced analytical techniques in the area of biomedical sciences. This course will provide training in the methodological aspects of biology, which are important in many areas of drug discovery and design such as treatment for cancer and inherited disorders. It investigates the interactions between potentially harmful chemicals and living organisms at the molecular and cellular level. This course also considers the possible sources of error in experimental and instrumental analysis to allow the correct interpretation of experimentally-derived scientific data. It is suitable for recent graduates who did not cover these areas in depth during their degree and for established bioscientists who wish to update their knowledge.

    This course provides graduates with the opportunity to extend their knowledge in the area of analytical bioscience.

    Key Features

    Modular course with eight taught modules plus project.

    Emphasis on independent learning.

    Assessment predominantly by assignment.

    The course is designed to train you in the scientific method in relation to the area of analytical bioscience, extend your interest and knowledge in all areas of the subject and provide vocational support.

    Course Structure

    This postgraduate course is taught in a different way to an undergraduate course. Considerable emphasis is placed on independent learning and the assessment is mainly by individual assignment.

    We offer the following modules:

    Fundamentals of Analytical Science

    Instrumental Methods

    Data Treatment and Analysis

    Advanced Separation Techniques

    Advanced Methods for Organics

    Biochemical Methods

    Forensic Investigation

    Pharmaceutical Analysis

    Molecular Medicine

    Molecular and Cellular Toxicology


    Placement and Careers (no credits are awarded for these modules)

    Career Opportunities

    We have had an average of over 20 graduates a year since 1994 from the MSc in Analytical Science courses. The majority have obtained employment in industry with a smaller number doing academic research leading to a PhD.

    Most of the major pharmaceutical/bioscience and chemical companies in the UK employ our graduates as well as smaller companies and research institutes. Many graduates gain promotion within the company within a few years of graduating.


    There may be a limited number of European Social Fund (ESF) grants, covering fees and providing a bursary available for UK and other EU citizens living in the UK who have good honours degrees.
