Biomedical Science (Study Abroad) at Lancaster University - UCAS

Course summary

Lancaster University’s BSc Biomedical Science (Study Abroad) is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). An IBMS-accredited degree, along with a training period in an NHS lab, represents a core route to employment in the NHS as a biomedical scientist. The degree will provide you with a thorough grounding in the theory and laboratory techniques associated with biomedical science – a subject dealing with the study of life processes within the context of human health and disease. It is ideal for those with a broad interest in human life processes and disease as teaching places an emphasis on the molecules and mechanisms fundamental to life processes and how these are disrupted by disease. Our Biomedical Science degree is designed to focus on the key aspects of modern day biomedicine. The course is highly-specialised and is taught jointly with clinical and biomedical staff from local hospitals. The course content is very structured and the majority of the modules are compulsory. If you would prefer a more flexible degree in this subject area, you might want to consider one of Lancaster University’s biomedicine degrees instead. You will begin your Biomedical Science degree with the study of 15 wide-ranging modules, including Biomedical Science in Practice, Biomedicine and Society, and Diagnosis in Biomedical Science. In your second year, you will study subjects including Biochemistry, Cellular Pathology and Medical Microbiology. You will spend your third year studying at one of our overseas partner universities building your global outlook and connectivity. Lancaster University will make reasonable endeavours to place students at an approved overseas partner university that offers appropriate modules which contribute credits to your Lancaster degree. Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster. Lancaster University cannot accept responsibility for any financial aspects of the year or term abroad. Returning to Lancaster for your final year of study, you will focus on aspects of human disease by studying modules on Cancer, Medical Genetics and Pathobiology. There are optional modules to select from in your third year, such as Neurobiology and Cell Signalling, Transport and Disease. During the degree, you will carry out a laboratory-based project, drawing on the expertise of our academic staffs’ vast biomedical research experience. This includes research into skin, colorectal, breast and prostate cancers; Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases; arthritis and other human conditions and diseases.
