Biomedical Science (with foundation year) at Nottingham Trent University - UCAS

Course summary

During the foundation year, you will develop core bioscience and study skills using an active and collaborative approach to your learning. This will enable you to build your skills and knowledge before you move onto BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science in Year Two. You’ll study key aspects of disease and disease prevention, including immunology, virology, haematology and cellular pathology. Focusing on clinical diagnosis scenarios, you’ll get lots of hands-on experience working with our lifelike human body and organ models. Biomedical science is the application of science to health. It is focused on studying the human body in health and disease, including the diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases and complex health problems such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. At NTU we focus on teaching you the practical skills you’ll need to be successful in this field. If your mission is to save lives, then you’ll get all the practical experience you need on our course. You’ll get to use our industry-standard equipment right from the very start of your course, such as our Haematology and clinical chemistry analysers, as used in NHS testing laboratories. This means you’ll stand out from the crowd when applying for placements and positions after graduation. You’ll be familiar with how a professional lab works and already know how to follow laboratory processes and protocols used in the workplace. When you are working in our lab facilities, you are becoming familiar with the same equipment you’ll find in an NHS, research or industrial lab – giving you a head start when you graduate.
