Find your passion to support the health of individuals and the nation by studying our biomedical sciences degree. You'll cover everything from anatomy to genetics and microbiology, as well as more specialist modules such as pharmacology, haematology and cellular pathology. Your natural inquisitive personality and fascination for the science behind clinical practice will help you to become a biomedical scientist, carving out a career in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and the advancement of modern medicine. COURSE OVERVIEW Biomedical science is the study of the health and diseases of the human body to improve health. Because biomedical scientists need a wide range of knowledge and skills, you'll study a wide range of modules on our biomedical sciences course. You will get an in-depth understanding of the complex science behind the cause, consequence, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses. You will learn how science can be applied to clinical practice and research, ultimately to make a difference to human lives through the diagnosis and treatment of disease. By putting your lab coat on you will put theory into practice in our brand-new laboratories, getting a sound knowledge of cellular pathology, genetics, the human immune system, and biochemical pathways. We’ll delve deep into blood sciences and clinical biochemistry on this biomedical degree, giving you the opportunity to expand your knowledge of diagnostic approaches, researching clinical markers, screening techniques and the role biomedical scientists can play in saving lives and improving health. ON THIS COURSE YOU WILL...
- Develop an enthusiasm for biomedical sciences and be involved in stimulating and structured learning opportunities.
- Be assigned a personal tutor who will not just be your academic point of contact on the course but will, along with our careers service, help you to consider the wide range of jobs and further study options a degree in biomed can give you.
