Gain in-depth knowledge on how the human body works in health and disease. You’ll learn how to diagnose and treat diseases in our specialist laboratories. Prepare for a career in public health With a degree in biomedical science, you can be part of the fight against critical public health issues such as cancer. The work of biomedical scientists has been crucial in the detection of global viruses, including COVID-19. They’ve also played a key role in the development of vaccines and the testing and development of drugs. Accredited study This industry accredited degree will enable you to understand and explore advances in the field. This could include how biomedical science has helped in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of a variety of illnesses. Choose your pathway At the end of your first year of study, you could choose to continue your multidisciplinary studies and gain a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science. Alternatively, you could choose to study for a combined degree award by specialising in one of our specific pathways: Medical Biochemistry Pathway
- Study biochemical interactions within the body, and the diagnosis of biochemically related diseases.
- Study the types of pathogen that cause infectious disease, and the strategies they use to attack the body. You’ll learn how to diagnose disease and understand the treatments available. You’ll also look at the global burden of infectious disease and the worldwide initiatives underway to try and control this challenging threat.
- Discover how different drugs are used for the treatment of diseases and what effect they have on the body. You’ll also develop your understanding of pharmacological principles and how they inform the development of drugs.
- By looking at biological processes involving genetics and gene technology, you’ll learn about the molecular advances in the treatment of disease and how treatments are developed.
- Dual accreditation from both the Royal Society of Biology (RSB) and the Institute for Biomedical Science (IBMS)
- 100% of students on BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences were positive about the way teaching staff explain things*
- Our specialist pathways will enable you to choose to focus on a particular discipline
- Our course is aligned to the criteria required to join the NHS Scientist Training Programme
- You'll study in our specialist Biomedical Sciences Laboratories where you can master specialist testing equipment; and familiarise yourself with the latest data and AV technology, microbiology facilities, and cell culture suites
