My course

Welcome from the team

Let me warmly welcome you to MSc Biomedical Science. I am Dr Claire Hawkes, your Course Leader, and I'm looking forward to meeting you at the start of your course. This course will give you a biological understanding of human diseases. You’ll explore the principles of treating those diseases, and the underlying biological disciplines that enable their study and explanation. Focused on career development for biomedical scientists, it also allows people from non-biomedical backgrounds to learn key skills and develop their industry experience.


If you have any queries, please contact me, your Course Leader by email or Telephone:

If you have any general queries about your course, you can also contact the Postgraduate Course Admin Team:
