Biomedical Science at Manchester Metropolitan University - UCAS

Course summary

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 gaining an insight into the underlying biology of a wide range of health disorders and their treatments. 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 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 via 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
