Become an expert in the Biomedical Sciences, a rapidly-growing area, developing solutions to a wide range of challenges linked to maintaining health and wellbeing through every stage of life. You’ll gain an integrated knowledge of the human body; how its organs, tissues and cells work together to keep you healthy, and what goes wrong in disease. Explore cutting edge research in areas such as regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, drug discovery, cancer biology and dementia. You will be part of an investigative-based inspirational and engaging learning experience, informed by our research, and delivered by world leading academics. Staff in our school are leaders in Biomedical Sciences disciplines that encompass anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience, biochemistry and microbiology, with many working in conjunction with other disciplines such as medical engineering, advanced materials science, computing and robotics. Our focus will be on making you workplace ready. You’ll undertake an independent capstone or culminating research project, bringing together the knowledge, skills and attributes developed throughout your degree. This 3 year BSc can also be converted into an integrated Masters (MBiol) with an optional additional year of specialist training, subject to suitable academic performance and availability. You would study advanced research topics and undertake your own extended research project within one of the major research laboratories in the School of Biomedical Sciences or an appropriate period of work based practice. Course highlights:
- Designed to give a broad scientific foundation and key graduate skills for those interested in biomedical sciences.
- Explore cutting edge biomedical research delivered by world-leading researchers.
- Delivered using inspirational, engaging and inclusive approaches. Develop the key skills and attributes you will need to become one of the next generation of thinkers, innovators and leaders, equipped to make a positive difference in a complex and ever-changing interconnected world.
- Experimental skills modules throughout the first 2 years train you to identify problems, design and conduct experiments to find answers to key biomedical questions.
- The opportunity to undertake an independent capstone research project under the supervision of a field-leading academic, further developing the key skills and attributes that will set you apart in both the competitive graduate job market or when seeking to commence a PhD.
