Course summary

Perhaps you studied biology in school and it sparked an interest in how the human body works and functions. Now, you want to understand things on a deeper level. If so, our (BSc) Biomedical Sciences degree is for you. On the course, we grapple with big questions such as ‘How are diseases caused?’ and ‘What tools can we use to understand symptoms?’ Through a mix of academic and practical learning, you’ll gain the skills employers look for. These include lab techniques, data handling, computing, report writing, oral presentations, and teamwork. With accreditation from the Institute for Biomedical Science (IBMS), you can be confident that you’ll benefit from highly rated teaching. The broadness of the degree opens up many possible future pathways. Using their strong links with industry, our academics have helped students find valuable work experience. Better diagnosis means better treatment for patients. That’s the difference we’re making to people’s lives. Are you ready to join us?
