If you are thinking about studying an undergraduate degree in science, then a degree in Biomedical Science at Abertay University is well worth considering. Where else could you study a range of subjects including medical genetics, human physiology, microbiology, cell and molecular biology all in one course? Add to this excellent teaching and support, accreditation and a variety of future career opportunities, then you could be onto a winning choice.
But don’t just take our word for it, the best people to tell you what it’s like to study this exciting subject are our students.
Biomedical Science student Rebecca Dalgliesh’s final year project looked at the use of antibiotics in livestock and food production. Here she tells us why she chose to study this subject at Abertay.
“My love of lab work was one of the reasons I chose biomedical science, but another was that I was just interested in so many different aspects of science that I felt by studying biomedical science I could learn about a very broad range of subjects I was interested in.”
“To anyone thinking about pursuing a biomedical science degree at Abertay I would say ‘definitely apply’, as they will undoubtedly receive superb teaching, help and reassurance throughout the four years of study and will feel like an individual rather than just a number in a sea of students.”
For her Honours project, Biomedical Science student Kirsty Lewis worked with the Abertay scientists who hit the headlines last year when they grew miniature beating human hearts to find a cure for heart disease.
As a result of her work on this research, she not only presented at an international student conference, but also had her work published in a scientific journal. Kirsty tells us why she decided to study this subject at Abertay.
“I applied to Abertay as the University is one of the few that offers an accredited Biomedical Science degree. This means that the Institute of Biomedical Sciences (IBMS) officially accredits the course, and that the applied course is approved by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC). This is beneficial as you can apply for registration with the HCPC as soon as you gain your biomedical science degree and commence employment as a biomedical scientist within the NHS without requiring further training or education.
“I had also heard great things about the University and city of Dundee from friends and family.”
