About the Course

Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Bioanalytical Science

In the Honours Bachelor Degree programme in Bioanalytical science students develop their skills in the laboratory and deepen their conceptual knowledge of key issues in the bioanalytical area.

Preparation for a management role in a bioanalytical laboratory will require students to be familiar with all issues related to laboratory audit, maintenance and development. Their career prospects are excellent. This BSc degree in Bioanalysis has been developed and has evolved over the years  in direct consultation with key personnel drawn  from a number of relevant companies, with past graduates, and with researchers, and academics.

Our principle objective is to provide a degree programme which clearly addresses the educational development needs of students and enables them to meet current and future  needs of employers in the area of bioanalytical science. Bioanalytical science is the application  of biological sciences to the study  and analysis  of biological samples allowing the detection of trace  amounts of biological molecules, microorganisms, and chemicals that  might be present in or contaminating a biological, environmental, or industrial  sample. Bioanalytical techniques have widespread application  in industry, public service laboratories, forensic analysis,  the food industry  and beyond.

The BSc (Hons) in Bioanalysis  has an established reputation amongst employers. The programme will build upon the strengths and learning you gain from your Higher Certificate in Science (Applied Biology) studies. Students may opt to take  a year out of college between their Higher Certificate and their BSc studies. This ladder  system of qualification provides students with a highly flexible approach to their own career development, which they can tailor to suit their own particular needs. Graduates are eligible to apply for entry to a Level 8 B.Sc. Honours degree (Bioanalytical Science) as a one year add- on at TU Dublin - Tallaght Campus.
