Teaching & Learning

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.

What you'll learn

You will receive a grounding in the different approaches to research, including quantitative data and collection methods. Students will be introduced to COSHH and carrying out risk assessments, as well as research ethics. The skills you will develop will allow you to plan your own research, effectively search for and evaluate research literature and be able to apply and analyse research data using appropriate statistical tests.
Study the importance of communicating scientific ideas to a range of audiences. You will discuss the different routes for dissemination and their use to reach different types of audience.
Explore the concepts of project management and leadership and how these apply to your own professional development and practice. You will critically evaluate and reflect upon your own skills and practices in the context of your research project, and use this information to identify needs associated with career development.
Focus on the applied laboratory skills that are widely used in biomedical sciences, as you combine theory and practice for many modern experimental techniques used in biological, medical and chemical analysis. By completion of this module, you will have a better understanding of analytical methods, and also how they can be optimised, assessed and practical experience in the development of these skills.
Undertake an extensive independent research project within the remit of the course team's expertise. You will work independently on your research, with guidance from the supervisor and you may be working as part of a research team, alongside PhD and MSc students.
