Developed in collaboration with Betsi Cadwaldr University Health Board (BCUHB) the MSc in Biomedical Science gives students the opportunity to develop their research skills, explore specialist areas, and complete an independent research project integrating the study of the biology of disease, including modern concepts and applications of biomedical science in research, diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders.
Develop the skills for practice at Higher Specialist Level
Use state of the art equipment, such as flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy and molecular analysers at the newly established BCUHB North Wales Clinical Research Centre (NWCRC)
Develop existing knowledge while improving analytical skills by undertaking laboratory-based investigations employing sophisticated and advanced biomedical methodology.
Gain a professionally recognised qualification, being externally accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).
Key Course Features
Biomedical Science is taught by enthusiastic academic and clinical professional staff in modern, spacious laboratories housed at the newly established North Wales Clinical Research Centre (NWCRC), based at Wrexham, and at Wrexham Glynd?r University.
Teaching and learning involves a range of methods including lectures, seminars, laboratory practical, group discussions and presentations.
Experimental work is an integral part of the programme. The academic and clinical staff are research active, and continually thrive to promote research within areas of biomedical and clinical sciences, where they regularly publish their research findings and discuss their work at national and international conferences.
Blended learning is a feature of this course enabling students to travel for the taught element of the course without having to commit to living in Wrexham or the locality full time. Each module takes the form of a learning package consisting of a three day block of face-to-face teaching supported by online learning. This approach is favoured by employers wishing to release their employees to study while still meeting service needs.
Throughout the course, there is coursework, which contributes to your overall marks.
The coursework assessment may focus on laboratory reports, clinical reviews, poster or oral presentations, case studies, essays or data manipulation exercises.
The programme creates wide-ranging opportunities for employment in fields such as hospital pathology laboratories (NHS and private sector), biomedical and pharmaceutical industries, or public health laboratories.
It provides preparation for the Institute of Biomedical Science Higher Specialist examination, Advanced Practice in Biomedical Science, and those wishing to enhance the career prospects of those aspiring to middle and senior management positions within the NHS.
Students on this programme will also be well placed for careers in research, teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD or graduate entry medical degree.
An initial honours degree of Wrexham Glyndw?r University or another approved degree awarding body. A minimum of 2:2 honours degree, which has a significant content of biological science (e.g. Biomedical Science, Human Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, etc.). Have relevant work experience at a senior level that is deemed to compensate the lack of formal qualifications, and have held a position of management responsibility within the biomedical, clinical or healthcare sectors for a minimum of three years within the previous five years. In a case where there is a lack of clarity or need to gain deeper insight into a candidate’s suitability for the programme of study, an informal interview with the candidate may be held. In addition to the above, candidates must also have practical laboratory experience that would have already been gained from undertaking their undergraduate programme of study inclusive of relevant QAA benchmark standards such as Biomedical Science and Biological Sciences. Prospective students may also apply for the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) against specific modules in accordance with Wrexham Glyndw?r University regulations. Students undertaking a research project (dissertation) that entails working in an area other than their usual place of work must obtain a relevant DBS. Students undertaking a research project (dissertation) who may be working with patients, vulnerable people and children must obtain an enhanced disclosure.
