Newly refurbished and well-equipped teaching and research laboratories for practical work. Part-time study option. Work/industrial placement opportunity. International students can apply. Salford University Biomedical Science is a highly popular IBMS accredited course which applies biology based science for medical purposes. The course will appeal to you if you want to develop your understanding of human disease processes, how they are diagnosed, monitored and treated. You will also have a strong interest in how modern research underpins the development of new therapies to improve future healthcare. This degree course covers broad biological principles relating ,to the normal function of the human body, as well as providing up to date training in medical and disease related topics including Pathophysiology, Cell Pathology, Clinical Immunology, Haematology, Microbiology, Genetics and more. Modules are complemented by visits to local pathology laboratories and the contribution of external NHS specialists and biomedical scientists, with whom we have strong long lasting links. You can opt to apply for a placement year after year two; some employers offer placements exclusively for Salford students along with the opportunity for several students to undertake the IBMS registration portfolio, providing you with a head start towards a career as a biomedical scientist. The final year of study offers flexibility in selecting a small project with an additional optional module (including Cancer: Bench to Bedside and Advances in Pathophysiology), or a significant lab research project. Research topics are medically related and benefit from staff research expertise and a recent £3million laboratory refurbishment within our Biomedical Research Centre. This course has a strong practical focus, allowing you to develop the lab skills needed to become an employable biomedical scientist, or for a career in medical laboratory research in a wide range of industry sectors. This programme is also available as a Degree Apprenticeship. In order to apply for the apprenticeship route, please email us at apprenticeships@salford.ac.uk or alternatively, complete our online enquiry form on our website (www.salford.ac.uk/degree-apprenticeships).
