De Mortfort University
Throughout the course, you will explore the analytical skills needed for research and investigation, develop an understanding of the role biomedical science plays in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and apply your knowledge and practical skills to a variety of clinical lab settings.
You will study key healthcare topics, such as infectious disease, cancer, and heart disease, building towards the final year, where we focus on clinical laboratory specialists, informed by current working professionals. Students also complete independent research projects in areas they are interested in, supported by leading academics in topics ranging from Alzheimer’s to Zika virus!
Our graduates are highly sought-after by NHS pathology centres and have gone on to work in diagnostic laboratories in both the public and private sectors, as well as research institutions for a research career or PhD study, and the biotechnology industry in roles such as biomedical scientist, laboratory assistant, associate practitioner and pharmacology technician.
Each topic or module will have a main assessment at the end of the module block. Assessments are based on real-world application of your skills, to try and best prepare you for the world of work, and include portfolios, presentations, case studies, lab reports, research papers, as well as quizzes and exams.
