You’ll start by developing a well-rounded understanding of biomedical topics, learning about analytical techniques and human disorders. You’ll then look at a range of specialist units – offering an in-depth look at everything from blood cells and diseases of the blood, to blood groups, transfusion methods and immunological aspects of blood. From there, you'll be ready to tackle the issues that fascinate you, with an independent masters research project.
Whether you study full-time for a year or part-time for up to three, our haematology and transfusion science masters can open doors for your future. From furthering your career in a hospital laboratory or working in a research facility, continuing your studies or moving into teaching or management, be ready for a career full of impact.
The Haematology and Transfusion Science course at Manchester Metropolitan University is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) which means our teaching is of a high standard and provides wide-ranging, research-informed education to ensure you develop the practical skills and experience that employers’ value. Please note, that although this MSc is accredited by the IBMS it does not fulfil the requirements to gaining registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and does not provide the opportunity to complete the IBMS Registration Training Portfolio. Please visit the IBMS website for more information and advice on HCPC registration.
This course offers an avenue into a range of specialist fields like hospital science, the biomedical and pharmaceutical industries or public health and transfusion laboratories. The subjects you’ll cover will not only help you prepare for the Institute of Biomedical Science higher specialist examination, and the advanced practice that follows, but can also lay the groundwork for careers in research or teaching or to pursue studies towards a PhD.
Our work with the NHS and clinicians helps us keep our curriculum up to date and clinically relevant, ensuring that our graduates have the skills and knowledge which are vital for the workplace – and sought after by employers.
You’ll have careers support from the moment you join us and for up to three years after you’ve finished your course. We offer a range of services, both in the Department of Life Sciences and through the University’s Careers Service, with dedicated careers and employability advisers you can turn to for guidance and support.
