This programme offers professional development to those in the Biomedical sector.
Newly qualified graduates in their first year of employment, especially those from a scientific background may benefit from the more generic modules such as Management and Leadership. In addition, some of the modules may act as 'conversion courses' e.g. a Chemistry graduate may undertake a module in Molecular Biology.
This work based scheme is also suitable for experienced mid-career professionals, including those without a first degree.
Modules are offered in three groups: Bioscience, Business and Management Skills, and Generic Skills. Students must achieve ten credits from group A and ten credits from group B. The remaining 40 credits can be accumulated by taking modules from any of the groups - A, B or C to a total credit value of 60.
