Entry Requirements:
Entry requirements

Candidates will already be working in a UK-based laboratory which is approved by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences (IBMS) for training. Additionally, students will normally be expected to possess one of the following qualifications before entry:

* an honours degree in a Biological subject from a UK or recognised university. The minimum degree category for entry to the course will normally be 2.2 or equivalent, in line with the 50% pass mark required to complete the course successfully;

* a professional qualification of equivalent status; or

* such other qualification and experience as the admissions panel shall deem equivalent in content and level of attainment.
MSc Biomedical Science by Flexible Learning
Course Description:
What do you study?
The MSc consists of a number of core modules including:

    * Molecular Biology and DNA Technology or Cell Culture and Antibody Technology
    * Research Methods and IT
    * Biology of Disease or Pharmacology

The core modules are studied consecutively throughout the programme and underpin the technology and theories of Biomedical Science.

You will later build upon the core modules with your chosen specialist subject and major research project in the same area.

The specialist subjects are chosen from the following options:

    * Cellular Pathology
    * Clinical Chemistry
    * Haematology and Transfusion Science
    * Medical Microbiology

The specialisms are studied over the whole duration of the course and allow you to compile your Institute of Biomedical Specialist Portfolio, which is required for professional recognition.

The modular nature of the course allows you to enrol for a single module in order to gain CPD (continuing professional development) points, if you do not wish to register for the full MSc.

The course normally runs over two-years, but due to its in-built flexibility, can be extended for up to three years.

How do you study?
As the majority of study is undertaken online through e-learning materials there is no attendance required at Nottingham Trent University during this course. This allows you to fit your study in around your other commitments.

Undertaking a distance-learning course requires a self-disciplned approach to engaging with the self-guided e-learning materials that have been specially designed to deliver the course content.

Each module has an academic team which is responsible for developing the curriculum, producing the e-learning materials, providing online and telephone support, and assigning coursework and grades.

You can contact your tutor and discuss ideas with other students via email, discussion boards, and over the telephone.

The research project is conducted in your place of work with joint supervision provided by your laboratory training officer and a member of staff from the School of Science and Technology.

You will undertake self-guided and formal assessments, enabling us to monitor your progress. Various work-based learning tasks will be set, and evidence of completion will be submitted along with a reflective log. The reflective log will also be submitted along with the specialist portfolio, which is required for the award of Institute of Biomedical Science Specialist Diploma. These will also be accompanied by a 10,000-word dissertation based on your chosen specialism.

The School of Science and Technology at Nottingham Trent University has a long association with the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and more than 30 years' experience in delivering IBMS-accredited postgraduate courses in Biomedical Science.

Our thriving research community has a strong national and international profile, and is involved in a wide range of research activities. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2001, the School was awarded a coveted Grade 5 for research carried out in subjects allied to medicine.

The Government's Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) has rated our teaching in Molecular Biosciences and Organismal Biosciences as "outstanding excellent" awarding each section the maximum score of 24 points.
