Biomedical Sciences (with a year in industry) at University of Dundee - UCAS

Course summary

In Biomedical Sciences you combine a range of topics from the field at Levels 1 and 2 before specialising in areas that interest you at Levels 3 and 4. This will include normal and diseased function as well as ways to prevent and treat disease. Between Level 3 and 4, you'll spend a year working in a related industry - for example in a commercial lab - before returning to your studies. You will learn key theories - from molecular level to full body systems - to understand the field as a whole. Your first two years will cover core concepts including genetics, cell biology, biological organisation, molecular mechanisms and processes. You’ll develop practical skills, including laboratory skills, data analysis, and how to design and run experiments. This will prepare you for carrying out projects later in your course. You can pick modules that interest you and the flexibility of our courses also means you can transfer to a different life sciences degree if you choose the relevant modules. Our course curriculum is shaped by the work of our world-leading researchers to make sure you’re learning the latest advances, as well as gaining an understanding of the fundamentals of the field. Laboratory sessions throughout your degree will help integrate your knowledge and practical skills, as well as develop strong transferable skills, both in and out of the lab.
