Studying Medical Science opens the door to a rewarding scientific career.
On this course, you’ll focus on the science that underpins modern medicine. You’ll understand how a healthy human body works, how a disease develops and how normal function can be restored. You’ll gain the laboratory and other practical skills in our Level-2 SuperLab Complex (anglia.ac.uk/superlab).
This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology owning to its academic excellence in bioscience and research.
After graduation, you’ll be in a strong position to pursue a career in the following areas, research scientist, lab technician, scientific writer, medical and healthcare regulations, patent law, data scientist, clinical trials or medical sales. We recommend that you use your first degree to further your studies in medical science or choose a patient-focused discipline such as Physician Associate (two years Masters programme) or complete a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and enter teaching.
If you do not meet the entry requirements for this course, we offer an extended degree, run over 4 years: Medical Science (Extended).
