About this course
On this course, you’ll gain a solid understanding of how the human body works, studying the molecular, cellular and organ-level processes that take place. You’ll also learn about the pathological changes that occur in disease and compounds that can be measured to aid diagnosis, as well as some of the latest technologies being applied by biomedical scientists to improve diagnoses and treatments.
In your final year you’ll carry out your own research project and look at how research can be applied to commercial settings.
Practical aspects of laboratory diagnosis and treatment are fundamental to the course. You’ll study the mechanisms underlying disease and how to apply this understanding to diagnosis and treatment while developing the practical laboratory skills needed to pursue a biomedical science career in a range of disciplines.
You’ll learn and practise these essential practical skills through teaching sessions in our new purpose-built laboratory facilities using specialist scientific equipment. Alongside laboratory training, you’ll also consider the variety of computer techniques involved in bioinformatics and how they are applied across the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.
You’ll be taught by research-active academics and be able to conduct research alongside these biomedical science experts as part of your degree.
