Overview

The Blood Science course from London Metropolitan University is designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to practice biomedical science at the highest level in the emerging multidisciplinary area of blood science.

This increasingly popular field within pathology is a merger of three previously separate fields: clinical biochemistry, medical immunology and clinical haematology.

This course is ideal for your career advancement or CPD. For example, you may currently be working in a biomedical science environment, in either the health service or other related industry, and wish to progress further in your career.

You can study either part-time or full-time starting in the autumn or spring, allowing you to fit your studies around your working life. You'll be supported by our Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) Weblearn and Collaborate, which are accessible from home at all times.
