    Course Outline:

    The MSc in Biomedical science (90 ECTS) is a full-time Level 9 programme course, normally extending over a 12-month period from September to August. The MSc is intended to introduce students to science and engineering disciplines they would not have covered in their undergraduate studies.

    Accreditation information
    The MSc in Biomedical Science course is not accredited by the Academy for Clinical Science and laboratory Medical Scientists (ACSML) or CORU. As a result, graduates of the MSc are not eligible to be employed as Laboratory Medical Scientists in Hospital clinical diagnostics laboratories. Graduates have however, secured Research Assistant positions in laboratories within Hospital clinical units.

    The first two semesters consist of taught modules (60 ECTS; see module details for more information) that will acquaint you with the basics of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, depending on your background. The modules are devoted to coursework through a series of lectures and tutorials and assessed by means of a written exam and/or continuous assessment. Students complete both scientific and business modules. Students are expected to carry out a business project by preparing a written report and presentation on a biomedical science-related topic. Also during the first two semesters, there will be a series of practical sessions that will familiarize you with different forms of instrumentation and techniques.

    A optional laboratory-based research project (30 ECTS) is undertaken by students in the 3rd semester (April–August). Toward the end of the research project, students are asked to present their findings at an MSc Research Symposium day. There is a prize for the most outstanding MSc Research presentation on the day.

    An alternative optional 30 ECTS module can be chosen instead by students. This module Regulatory Affairs & Operational Excellence aims to equip students with foundational practical knowledge of the regulatory pathways for placing medical devices and pharmaceuticals on the market within the EU, US and globally. It explains the legislation applicable and guidelines available to medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Students also gain theoretical and practical knowledge and experience in Lean Six Sigma Operational Excellence, and Quality Management.
