More about this course
The Blood Science (Distance Learning) MSc course is designed to provide you with a deep understanding of the emerging, mixed-disciplinary field of blood science.
This master's specialisation combines haematology, immunology, transfusion and clinical biochemistry developed from the increasing automation within pathology.
Created with input from current practitioners in the field, the course is suitable for biomedical science practitioners, graduates of biomedical or related human sciences and those who want work or already are working in blood science departments within pathology.
Taught entirely online, your physical attendance will not be required on campus and you can learn at your own pace with the support of our biomedical science team.
You’ll examine different theoretical perspectives, methodological approaches, research interests and practical applications.
Each module has a module leader who is responsible for developing the curriculum and coordinating the production of the online learning materials. Some sessions are broadcast live with modules running as taught sessions in the University, so you can engage with tutors, lecturers and other students.
You can also contact your module leader and discuss ideas with other students via email, discussion boards and during live peer-to-peer support sessions.
Your final research project will be conducted in your place of work with joint supervision provided by your laboratory training officer and a member of staff from the School of Human Sciences. For those not working in a suitable laboratory, research may be conducted at London Metropolitan University with additional bench fees for materials.
The course is designed to support professionals and their career development in the healthcare profession, biomedical/biotechnology industry or in academia, with the ability to take individual modules for continuing professional development (CPD). The course also has the potential to lead on to doctoral study.
Exercises and short phase tests will be used to provide you with feedback on your progress.
Summative assessment of your knowledge base and understanding will be incorporated into formal in-course tests and exercises, personal learning logs and end of module assessments completed at the end of each unit.
Your master's research project assessment will culminate in the presentation of a dissertation and a poster presentation via a face-to-face messaging system or similar technology.
This course is accredited by the IBMS, and all students are eligible for eStudent Membership of the IBMS.
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.
