    Course Summary

    The University of Westminster’s MSc degree in Biomedical Sciences is largely focused on preparing you for an active role in the research and development of immunological treatments and techniques, as well as giving you the skills you’ll need to evaluate and implement cutting edge immunological applications.

    You’ll learn specific skills in immunotherapy, immunopathology and immunology as well as developing the ability to deliver analytical immunodiagnosis. You’ll study molecular therapeutics and learn advanced laboratory skills. These latter will be tested and enhanced as you design, execute and document a laboratory based Postgraduate Research Project.

    This course is mainly of use to those wishing to become practicing immunologists, though you can select additional material form a list of advanced optional modules in order to fine tune your educational experience. In the end, you’ll have gained a much broader perspective on both scientific progress in the field and how this relates to delivering the highest quality of health care.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This degree program is typically delivered over a single year at full time. In addition to the five ‘core’ modules shared by all students of the program, you’ll be able to select one or more optional modules based on your own interests and intended career pathway.

    Core Modules Include:

    • Cell Signalling and Genetics
    • Immunopathology
    • Immunotherapy
    • Postgraduate Research Methods
    • Postgraduate Project

    Note that the Postgraduate Project requirement is for a substantial piece of work which will demonstrate not only your skills in experimental design and analysis, but also your ability to manage yourself and a substantial research project without close supervision. You will have a degree of flexibility when it comes to selecting the topic, though it is typically related to your choice of optional module(s) in some way.

    Optional Modules Include:

    • Systems Biology
    • Principles of Molecular Medicine
    • Molecular Science and Diagnostics
    • Molecular and Cellular Therapeutics
    • Infectious Diseases and Public Health
    • Immunohaematology and Haemostasis
    • Extended Postgraduate Project
    • Advanced Cancer Biology

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Westminster has developed a detailed Learning and Teaching Strategy which was designed to dovetail with their 2020 Strategy. Essentially, their goal is to ensure that every degree program they offer includes a strong focus on the employability of their graduates. Each should turn out highly skilled, effective practitioners and professionals who can apply a global perspective to their specialty and its place in an ever shifting economy.

    Career Possiblities

    As this course is specifically designed to give you high level professional skills in immunotherapy, immunopathology and immunology more generally, it prepares you for a specific range of careers. Many students continue their academic careers to the next level, entering a related PhD or research degree program either at Westminster or any other fine university. Others find rewarding roles in hospitals and pharmaceutical industry labs throughout the UK and beyond.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 1 year MSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have already earned a good honours BSc degree in a related field, but other qualifications are also accepted. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test such as the IELTS.
