Over the course of our biomedical science degree, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of the biological principles that relate to the workings of the human body, as well as the characteristics and diagnosis of disease leading to possible therapeutic interventions. After gaining a solid grounding in the principles of biomedical science, you’ll move on to specialist topics, acquiring the in-depth understanding and advanced techniques vital for professional practice. That means you’ll study a range of areas, from cell and molecular biology, physiological systems and research skills, to blood science, cellular science, and techniques and applications in biomedical science, to name but a few. In your final year, you’ll get the chance to develop your own particular interests with a major project. With our excellent facilities and close links with local hospitals, by the time you graduate you’ll be ready for the next stage of your career. FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Our pioneering research in lifelong health and ageing, microbiology, vascular biology and musculoskeletal science and sports medicine has led to important advances in diagnosis and care.
- We are investing £115m to transform the way we teach in the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Opening in 2023, our new Dalton building will enhance collaboration between students, staff and industry and provide new and improved teaching spaces, including a 200-student capacity ‘super lab’.
- We have high-specification teaching and research laboratories with specialist equipment, including blood biochemistry, a new microscopy suite and exercise performance laboratories.
- BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science students may transfer to MBioMedSci Biomedical Science at the end of their second year, if they achieve a second year average mark of at least 60%.
- The full-time, four-year placement route provides the opportunity to go on a placement for at least 36 weeks, where you’ll get a taste of professional life in either a clinical or industrial setting.
- The full-time, four-year BSc (Hons) Applied Biomedical Science placement route provides the opportunity to complete a 48-week placement in an Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) approved training laboratory and work towards completion of the IBMS Registration Portfolio.
- You’ll have access to regular online video support, which provides additional explanation and guidance on a range of topics, from coursework and exam paper guidance to lab demonstrations.
