Course summary

Applied biomedical science is a field of study that seeks to apply advances in basic research, to develop new diagnostic tools, therapies and preventive strategies for human diseases. Subjects covered by the course include clinical trials management, genomics, personalised medicine, bioinformatics and population health research. The course is aimed at students with an undergraduate degree in biomedical science or a related bioscience discipline. Previous participants have also joined with qualifications in biotechnology, dentistry, medicine, pharmacology and pharmacy. Good writing skills and a fundamental understanding of molecular biology, genetics and arithmetic are essential to succeed. There are multiple opportunities on the course to develop your transferable professional skills, especially in scientific writing, presentation and data analysis. Professional training further includes a three-month research project, involving active immersion in a translational science project. Completing our MSc will help you develop into a confident and self-reliant scientist with extensive knowledge and understanding of translational science. You’ll be prepared for both academic study at a doctoral level, as well as for a career in research and development. Past graduates have gone on to study medicine, start PhD training or obtained employment in roles such as data analyst, clinical trials manager or researcher within the biotechnology sector. We also invite applications from intercalating medical students.
