The Blood Science (Distance Learning) MSc course at London Metropolitan University 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.
After the course
The extension of knowledge this course provides allows practising biomedical scientists to be considered for promotion at work. Increasing numbers of healthcare scientists are benefitting from training in this discipline too.
Your career opportunities could include employment in National Health Service (NHS) hospital laboratories and other health-related areas. Roles include those in pharmacology, biotechnology and similar areas.
Our graduates have also been well-placed to apply for research studentships and PhD research scholarships.
Graduates with two years relevant professional experience can apply for the Member grade of membership of the IBMS.
