  • Objectives
    This course will appeal to you if you are or intend to be employed as a biomedical or clinical scientist in either the NHS, a research institution or a pharmaceutical company; it will also be useful if you wish to gain a further, more specialised qualification prior to embarking on a PhD. The course has also proved useful for medically trained doctors about to embark on research.
  • Entry requirements
    You would normally have either a suitable Honours degree or a professional qualification of equivalent status. Other equivalent qualifications and experience will be considered by the course team on a case-by-case basis. If your first language is not English you should normally have attained the equivalent of an IELTS score of at least 6.5, with a minimum score of 6 in the writing component, or TOEFL (paper) score of at least 600 plus TOEFL written test at Grade 4.5 or above, TOEFL (computer based test) of at least 250, or Cambridge Proficiency, Grade B. Please note that when the course commences, during induction all full-time students who do not have English as their first language will complete both Academic English screening and any resulting recommended Academic English support activity provided.

  • Course description
    This course is aimed at meeting the growing requirement for high level training in technologies emerging from research in DNA technology and immunology. These areas are becoming essential elements of treatmenf of, and of routine diagnosis in, for example, genetics, infectious diseases and clinical oncology. The market for such skills includes the medical laboratory service, research institutions, forensic medicine and industries related to medicine, not only of the traditional pharmaceutical kind but also, and increasingly, new biotechnological companies involved in the commercial marketing of one or more specific products, such as DNA probes, tissue antigens, marker proteins and monoclonal antibodies.
