Be inspired to help shape the future of clinical medicine. This course covers everything from human physiology and pharmacology, to molecular and cell biology. Biomedical science is the study of the human body in health and disease. You'll study the basis of diseases such as coronavirus and cancer, and tackle challenges such as hearing loss. You'll explore therapies that use stem cell technology and discover how we develop drug treatment for inflammatory disease.
We're proud to be one of only a few universities in the UK to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to perform full body cadaveric dissection, providing you with an excellent foundation for understanding human physiology and developmental biology.
You'll study a range of biomedical science modules, with the freedom to explore optional topics from across the breadth of bioscience, including genetics, microbiology, evolution or biochemistry. This flexibility allows you to study biomedical science in greater depth, broaden your interests or switch to another biosciences degree programme. No matter what modules you choose, you'll develop the practical skills that make our graduates attractive to employers including project management, problem solving, communication skills and data analysis.
We'll give you plenty of opportunities to apply your new skills and knowledge. You'll be in the lab completing in-depth practicals, learning about the human body through cadaveric dissection, and sharing your knowledge through peer assisted study sessions.
As you progress through your degree you'll be able to specialise in key areas such as stem cells, cancer, neuroscience, physiology, pharmacology, and developmental and cell biology. Whichever your specialism, your personal tutor will support you to tailor your degree to your interests and career goals.
