MSci Biomedical Science is a practice-led course and is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science. The first three years are based around our long-running BSc(Hons) Biomedical Science. You’ll get a strong grounding in modern biomedicine, and study the basic scientific core subjects and the biology of disease, alongside specialist biomedical subjects. Gain wide-ranging experience and develop expertise in the areas that interest you most and work at the cutting-edge of biomedical science, using highly specialised equipment and tools. Build essential practical experience through placements and internships. If you choose the sandwich option, you’ll spend your third year working with an employer or at another university, in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, research or wider sector. This could be in the UK, in Europe or further afield. You’ll then develop your advanced research skills in the final year, working on a project linked to an area of research we’re renowned for, supported by our research-focused academic team. Our graduates work in an increasingly diverse range of roles. Most go into biomedical science, working in research and development for organisations in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors. The broader transferable skills you’ll develop means you could also go into areas like management, finance or marketing.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
