The Biomedical Science (Medical Microbiology) Masters at Middlesex in London is designed to provide you with advanced knowledge and skills required for a career working in a diagnostic or research laboratory.
It covers the fundamental aspects of molecular and cellular biology and modern bio-analytical techniques used for studying cells and microbes. In addition, the course includes a study of pathogenic microbes, epidemiology, infection control, laboratory investigation of infectious diseases, vaccination and immunisation.
We also cover legal and ethical issues related to biomedical research. Our specialist staff, who include microbiologists, cellular pathologists, molecular biologists and biochemists, will provide you with a sound basis in order to pursue research to PhD level.
We welcome applications from graduates with a good honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in an appropriate subject. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of three years' work experience. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level.

You must have competence in English language and we normally require Grade C GCSE or an equivalent qualification. The most common English Language requirements for international students are IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL (paper based) 575 or TOEFL (internet based) 90 with specified minimum scores for each component.
