Biomedical Scientists play a key role in modern healthcare through studying the human body in health and disease. In this course you will explore topics such as physiology, pharmacology, haematology, microbiology and cell biology alongside developing your laboratory techniques. Following our common 1st year, you can choose to continue your studies in of our four specialist pathways: Biomedical Sciences (Medical Biochemistry Pathway) , Biomedical Sciences (Molecular Biotechnology Pathway), Biomedical Sciences (Pharmacological Sciences Pathway), Biomedical Sciences (Medical Microbiology Pathway) or continue to study our broader Biomedical Sciences pathway. Whichever route you choose, we have designed our pathways to cover the topics outline in the Quality Assurance Agency Subject Benchmark Statement, and you will be working with tutors from our Biomedical Research Centre to complete your research project in an area of your choice.
Our MSc Biomedical Science, MSc Medical Microbiology and MSc Medical Biochemistry are also accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science.
