What will I Study?

This modular course is studied on a part-time basis and can be completed in three to five years, depending on your personal requirements. Since the course is entirely internet-based, using our specialised Virtual Learning Environment, it is essential that you have regular access to the Internet to fully engage with the course. Each module is designed to offer flexible learning opportunities to encourage you to develop as a student and as a professional. Module tutors will provide critical feedback on self-designed learning activities for each module. Assessment is based on an electronic submission of your portfolios of evidence at the end of the modules.

The first year of study is designed to equip you with the study skills necessary to succeed at Masters level. In the first few weeks of the course you will “meet” your academic tutors and global peer group, who will progress through your modules with you. A key feature of this course is the opportunity to participate in online discussions, with your tutors and fellow students. Some of these discussions form part of your formal assessment.

Once you have successfully completed the first year, you can chose to graduate with a Postgraudate Cetificate (60 credits), or continue onto the second year of study, where you have the freedom to specialise in your chosen area of pathology. Each specialist area contains 60 credits of assessment and covers a wide range of current issues. These are Cellular Pathology, Haematology and Transfusion Science, Clinical Chemistry and Medical Microbiology. This choice allows you to enhance your knowledge and understanding of your current field, or alternatively, to open up a path into related areas. Completion of the second year will entitle you to a Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) , or allow you to progress to the third year to complete the Masters degree in full. Details of the modules offered within each specialist area are available at the link shown below.

In the third year of study you complete a Masters Project (60 credits) on a relevant research project of your choice. Please note that this Project must be experimental in nature and that it is expected that the research will be conducted (and funded) within your laboratory, or place of work.
