About Biomedical Science at Faculty of Science, University of Strathclyde

Biological and biomedical sciences (also known as life sciences) are at the heart of science and medicine, and include biochemistry, microbiology, immunology and pharmacology.

Biomedical science represents an opportunity to put scientific knowledge into practical use and performs a key role within medical healthcare that offers career satisfaction for many in the profession.

As a biomedical scientist your skills and qualifications will be recognised across the UK and worldwide.

This course offers a more general degree than the specialist joint Honours biosciences degree programmes.

You’ll follow the same curriculum up to Year 3, but instead of specialising in only two biomedical science options, you’ll take classes selected from all four areas, developing a broad understanding of all the biomedical sciences.

    Living in Glasgow: Ellie Kissel, MSc Information & Library Studies

    I have always wanted to study in the UK and when searching for programems on the American Library Association website, the course at Strathclyde stood out as the one which would enhance my professional career. I love living in Glasgow and it reminds me of the southern hospitality of my home state of Kentucky.

    The course has provided me with a wide range of experimental physics skills and the opportunity to use them in a cutting-edge research project. The multicultural environment on campus supports the collaboration of students from the world, and through numerous group-work projects prepares us for our future jobs. 

    Course flexibility & further study: Shouyue Wu, MSc Optical Technologies

    I've enjoyed the flexible nature of the course which allowed me to choose classes and projects to suit my interests. There's always guidance from staff, not only about studying, but also about living in Glasgow and your future career. I am planning to do a PhD project on optical fibre to prepare me to work in the industry.
