The M.S. in Analytical Bioscience at University of Huddersfield will provide training in the methodological aspects of biology, which are important in many areas of drug discovery and design such as treatment for cancer and inherited disorders.


The Analytical Bioscience program offered by University of Huddersfield  provides graduates with the opportunity to extend their knowledge in the area of analytical bioscience. The taught part of the course consists of eight theory modules in the areas of analytical biochemistry and relevant analytical chemistry as well as a research project. The research project requires 50 days laboratory work and takes place during the summer.

The interactions between potentially harmful chemicals and living organisms at the molecular and cellular level will also be investigated. 

This course also investigates the possible sources of error in experimental and instrumental analysis thus allowing the correct interpretation of experimentally-derived scientific data.

It is suitable for recent graduates, who did not cover this area in depth during their degree, and for established bioscientists who wish to up-date their knowledge. This course is two thirds taught material and one third research project.


Currently there are good employment opportunities for Analytical Bioscientists. Recent graduates from this course are employed in major bioanalytical testing contract research organisations as well as in the pharmaceutical and food industries. A number have undertaken academic research leading to a PhD.
