Course summary

Studying biomedical sciences at the University of Leeds will equip you for a wide range of medical and science-related careers. You’ll explore core biomedical subjects such as anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience, with teaching from expert researchers in world-class facilities. In this degree you'll gain an integrated knowledge of the human body; how it works in health and disease and of current biomedical science techniques and methodologies. Our integrated Masters (MBiol) offers you an additional year of specialist training, to study advanced research topics and undertake your own extended research project. You will be able to make an impact with this degree as biomedical sciences studies the science of human beings, from the level of molecular activity inside cells to the holistic behaviour of individuals. This informs medical challenges such as dementia, the complexities of managing chronic pain and the impacts of a sedentary lifestyle on health. This provides a solid foundation for a career in laboratory-based science, whether in the field of research or clinical healthcare or as the foundation for further study in medical fields. Course highlights:

  • Designed to give a broad scientific foundation for those interested in Biomedical Sciences.
  • Develop your skills through practical training in specialised laboratories, including hands-on anatomy. Experimental Skills module identifies the effects of drugs acting on the cardiac and respiratory systems.
  • A wide range of research-led optional modules includes principles of drug discovery, molecular neuroscience, cellular cardiology and neuropharmacology.
  • Carry out an independant research project under the supervision of a field-leading academic, further developing the transferable skills that will set you apart in the graduate job market.
  • Current global challenges that are relevant to medical sciences include dementia, complexities of managing chronic pain, sedentary lifestyle impacts on health.
