Biomedical scientists work at the cutting edge of research and medicine, helping to solve some of the most threatening diseases and conditions facing humankind. Biomedical science has laid the foundation for medical breakthroughs in everything from Covid-19 to cancer, diabetes to heart disease, bone strength to brain development and more. St George’s Biomedical Science MSci is a four-year programme which integrates a year of master’s-level study, aimed at students who plan to have a career in the research field or extend their experience of laboratory-based biomedical science. Our curriculum offers flexibility to better prepare you for a career in healthcare or medicine; you will gain experience and skills that are transferable to employment or further study and will equip you to apply for PhD courses or research posts in industry. In the first three years of the course you will follow the curriculum of our Biomedical Science BSc, with extra modules to develop your research skills. In Year 3 you’ll have the chance to focus your learning in one of 10 specialisms. In the final year you will complete an extended research project, which will help you to develop the more advanced practical and research skills required for a research career. Course highlights
