Course summary

Become an expert in Biomedical Sciences, an essential area for providing humankind with solutions to a wide range of challenges, including those in health and wellbeing. You will gain an integrated knowledge of the human body; how it works in health and disease using current biomedical science techniques and methodologies. You will discover and explore cutting edge research in areas such as regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, drug discovery, cancer biology and dementia for example. You will be part of an investigative-based inspirational and engaging learning experience, informed by our research and delivered world leading academics. Staff in our school are leaders in Biomedical Sciences disciplines that encompass anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, pharmacology, neuroscience, biochemistry and microbiology. Our focus will be on making you workplace ready, equipped to succeed in whatever career you choose to go onto. To showcase your knowledge and skills to potential employers, you’ll undertake an independent capstone or culminating research project, where you will bring together the knowledge, skills and attributes developed throughout your degree and apply with the ultimate aim of creating a solution to a problem. This integrated Masters (MBiol) gives you an additional year of specialist training. You will 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. You may also choose to apply for our 3 year BSc and transfer to an MBiol up until the end of your second year, subject to suitable academic performance.  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 which develop the key skills and attributes enabling you to become a global graduate able to contribute biomedical solutions to global challenges facing human kind.
  • Develop experimental skills in specialised laboratories. 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 the graduate job market.
