Blood Science

Study at your own pace in this course designed to promote a deep understanding of the emerging mixed disciplinary area of blood science. You'll examine different theoretical perspectives, methodological approaches, research interests and practical applications within blood science, as an independent learner. Designed with input from current practitioners in the field, the course is suitable for biomedical science practitioners and graduates of biomedical or related life sciences. The programme covers areas relevant to staff working within or wishing to work in blood science departments within pathology, and offers single modules which can be undertaken to gain continuing professional development (CPD) points. Delivered as a flexible distance-learning programme through our e-Portal, WebLearn, you'll be able to continue to work whilst studying. The self-guided e-Learning materials have been specially designed to support the engagement with the course content.

Entry requirements

You will be required to have a first or second class honours first degree (or equivalent) in biomedical or life sciences subjects (that included appropriate biomedical content), although other subjects may be considered. Lower grades or non-degree qualifications supplemented by substantial work experience may be considered at interview. Applicants who require a Tier 4 student visa need to provide a Secure English Language Test (SELT) such as IELTS 7.0 (6.5 minimum in each component) or equivalent.

Course modules

Modules include: Bioethics, Clinical Biochemistry, Haematology, Transfusion Science, Advanced Immunology, and a Research and Grant Proposal.

Assessment methods

Assessments will include exercises and short phase tests will be used to provide feedback on your progress. Summative assessment of your knowledge base and your understanding will be incorporated into formal in-course tests and exercises, personal learning log and end-of-module assessment completed at the end of each unit. MSc research project assessment will culminate in the presentation of a dissertation and a poster presentation (via face-to-face messaging system or similar technology).
