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

Course summary

Unlock the secrets of the cells, organs and systems in the human body to diagnose illness, treat disease and save lives. The biomedical sciences hold the answers to understanding health and disease. Answers that impact individuals, economies and society as a whole. Studying with us, you’ll explore the basics of anatomy, physiology and biochemistry. At the same time, we’ll teach you about molecular biology, immunology, genetics and more.  But your learning will go beyond the lecture theatre. You’ll spend hours in our modern labs, getting hands-on experience with scientific tools. And you can apply for a placement year where you could sharpen your practical skills in the pharmaceutical industry or join a team in an NHS laboratory.  Put your skills into practice  Everywhere you go you’ll hear insightful conversations about research and practice. Learn from biomedical and biological sciences experts in interactive lectures. Discover the latest insights into psychology and education. And benefit from clinical staff sharing their experiences.  The skills you develop will be key when you carry out your final year project and become a researcher in your own right. In your final year, you can also study specialist areas, including cancer biology, personalised medicine, stem cells and regenerative medicine.  Many of our graduates progress onto medicine, dentistry or research-based careers, and the programme is designed with this in mind.
