Biomedical Sciences with a Year Abroad at Queen Mary University of London - UCAS

Course summary

Biomedical scientists study the cells, organs and systems in the human body, and how findings can be applied to diagnose and treat disease. Our Biomedical Sciences BSc is taught jointly by Queen Mary University of London's Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry and the School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences. Many of our graduates progress onto medicine, dentistry or research-based careers, and the programme is designed with this in mind. We’ll give you a thorough grounding in human anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, immunology, genetics and pharmacology. In final year, you can direct your study to specialist areas, including cancer biology, personalised medicine, stem cells & regenerative medicine and endocrinology. Practical sessions in our modern labs will give you hands-on experience of using scientific instrumentation. In the final year you’ll carry out a structured research project, supervised by our experts, developing the skills to become a researcher in your own right. This programme is not accredited by the IBMS. As a Russell Group university, we update the Biomedical Sciences programme to reflect research developments in the field; we are better able to do this outside of the IBMS accreditation. Our graduates pursue a range of careers and are still able to pursue a career as a Biomedical Scientist.

Assessment method

Measuring attainment in our modules against the intended learning outcomes involves either a series of coursework elements (practical reports, field course reports, essays, problem sheets, online exercises and tests), an end of semester final summative assessment/written exam or a combination of both. Final-year students undertake a research or investigative project, assessed with a detailed written report, poster and interview.
