About BSc Biomedical Sciences

In the first year you will study subjects across the breadth of the biology related to human health and disease. This will provide a sound, broad background in biochemistry, cell and cancer biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology and virology.

As a second-year student you will study molecular genetics and a range of biomedical sciences units, allowing you to pursue your interests as they develop. You will also receive training in transferable and employability skills.

There is a strong emphasis on the development of practical skills and our eBiolabs dynamic laboratory manual is available to help you prepare for practical laboratory sessions in the first and second year. You will also develop research skills to prepare you for a project in the third year.

In the final year you will choose options from a list of units that reflect our research strengths and undertake a project in a related discipline.
