Clinical biochemistry applies basic biochemistry and analytical chemistry to medical diagnosis, treatment and management. It provides a sound, objective basis on which to gauge the extent of a clinical disorder, the biochemical consequences of a particular disease process, and the response to therapy. This programme is designed to provide students with the basic skills needed for a career in clinical biochemistry within the health service.

Programme structure
The programme consists of six compulsory course units. Each course unit is worth 15 credits and involves 30 hours of contact time. A further 90 credits is gained by the satisfactory completion of a supervised research project culminating in the submission of a dissertation or report. Each unit has approximately 24 hours of formal lectures, with 6 hours of additional time spent in a combination of seminars, tutorials, essays or oral presentations by students.

* Analytical Methods I and II
* Homeostasis and Nutrition
* Endocrinology
* Biochemistry of Major Organ Disorders
* Biochemical Screening in Health and Disease

Students are also encouraged to attend course units in Statistics and Research Skills. Diploma students conduct a limited research project and submit a report, and MSc students undertake a comprehensive research project culminating in the submission of a dissertation.

Objectives/
Content

This programme makes available core elements of IDPM's existing Master's programmes in Human Resource Management and Human Resource Development , enabling participants to obtain a Master's degree by distance learning without leaving home or interrupting their careers.
Students follow a guided programme of eight course units and a dissertation. All students undertake the core module in teaching period one. After that, students are free to study flexibly, subject to the modules available at any time. However, students who follow the `normal study' route take three modules in the first year and the remaining four modules in the second year. A dissertation is undertaken in the first half of the third year. Since many students will not have access to an academic library, students receive very detailed study packs for each module, sufficient to allow them to meet the requirements of module assessment. Students join an Internet tutorial group for each module, using email to discuss course unit topics with a tutor and fellow students.

The following modules are taken:

  • Core issues in Human Resource Management (15 Credits)
  • Human Resource Development (15 Credits)
  • Human Resource Practice (15 Credits)
  • International Management (15 Credits)
  • Organisational Behaviour (15 Credits)
  • Organisation Development (15 Credits)
  • Training and Development (15 Credits)
  • Research Methods (15 Credits)
Next Beginning January 2010
Duration 2, 5 years
Requirements Applicants will normally be expected to hold a good first degree. The programme has been designed to accommodate participants from a broad range of backgrounds and relevant professional experience will be taken into consideration as a qualification for entry to the programme. Applicants who do not fulfil all the entry requirements for the Masters degree may be registered as Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate students. Such students whose performance has met the standard required at Master's level at the end of the fourth module proceed to the remaining modules and dissertation. Students whose performance has met only the standard required at Diploma level proceed to the remaining modules (excluding the reserach methods module). On satisfactory completion of all the modules they are awarded the Postgraduate Diploma.
Course fee Overseas students £9500
UK/EU students £5250
Scholarship The University of Manchester is pleased to invite applications for a total of six fully-funded Equity and Merit scholarships for candidates from Uganda for master's studies in Human Resource Management & Development by distance learning. The scholarships, established on an initiative of the President of the University, cover all tuition and examining fees and course material costs.

Objectives/
Content

The current impoverishment of more than 1.4 billion people presents the world with its single greatest moral challenge. Although progress towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals has been impressive in some parts of the world, they are unlikely to be met by 2015 across large swathes of sub-Saharan Africa - and even if they were, large numbers of people would remain trapped in chronic poverty, not least by the unequal sets of power relations that operate from local to global levels. The recent global financial crisis is likely to make things harder, leading rich countries to slash their aid budgets, reducing levels of foreign investment in poor countries and creating new forms of poverty in the global North and South. The challenge of understanding and tackling the problem of poverty is therefore an urgent one.

The new, multidisciplinary MSc in Poverty and Development at IDPM is designed to help participants engage with this challenge in a critical and constructive way, by offering high-level academic training in a vibrant and stimulating environment. The Institute for Development Policy and Management and the University of Manchester are committed to becoming world leaders in poverty research and poverty studies. We currently host three international research institutes and centres which produce cutting-edge insights into poverty and strategies for its eradication.
