About

The Biomedical Science (Haematology - Medical Microbiology) course at Kingston University provides an in-depth understanding of disease processes and diagnostic techniques. It links academic knowledge to the practical applications of biomedical science, particularly in relation to modern diagnostic methods. You can choose to study one of two pathways - haematology or medical microbiology.

Overview

The Biomedical Science (Haematology - Medical Microbiology) course at Kingston University is kept up to date through extensive links with leading healthcare and research laboratories such as GlaxoSmithKline, the Institute of Cancer Research and local hospitals. 

In addition, some key features of the course include:

  • Skills to enhance employability are embedded within the curriculum to maximise job opportunities in a wide variety of biomedical science careers, including hospital and commercial laboratories, research, teaching and sales. 
  • Teaching on the course is research-led and research-informed to ensure that all students are aware of the latest developments in biomedical science.
  • Research projects can be carried out within one of our research groups or as part of an industrial placement. 

What will you study?

Practising expert biomedical scientists are an integral part of the teaching team and ensure that the programme content reflects current practice, whilst academic staff at the university provide the opportunity for involvement in internationally recognised research. 

The programme comprises four taught modules (two core, two specialist), plus an extended research project where students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and to develop competences in advanced laboratory techniques.  Core modules will familiarise you with the theoretical and practical aspects of molecular medicine used in research and hospital laboratories, the molecular basis of immunological mechanisms, cellular mechanisms of disease, physiological manifestations and implications to public health. 

You will learn about the principles and practice of laboratory management in biomedical science, and you will acquire the skills required for researching and communicating in biomedical science. You will also study modules in your elected specialist route (Haematology or Medical Microbiology). In addition to subject-specific knowledge, the course aims to develop your communication and other skills.

Careers and recruitment advice

The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing has a specialist employability team. It provides friendly and high-quality careers and recruitment guidance, including advice and sessions on job-seeking skills such as CV preparation, application forms and interview techniques. Specific advice is also available for international students about the UK job market and employers' expectations and requirements.
