MSc Advanced Specialist Blood Transfusion

Update 22/10/2020

A decision was made in August 2019 to discontinue the offering to new candidates for the MSc Advanced Specialist Blood Transfusion Practice  programme delivered by BBTS in conjunction with Swansea University. The reasons for this decision were varied, which included applications to the programme being less than anticipated, ultimately to a point where provision of the programme was no longer viable.

BBTS and Swansea university would like to take this opportunity to thank all those students who did undertake and successfully complete the programme and those involved in the delivery and assessment of the qualification.

The final cohort of students are currently starting their third year and we will continue to extend our support to these students until they have successfully completed the qualification.
