Biomedical Science Degrees

Biomedical science is used to diagnose diseases within the human body and develop treatments for these diseases. Those students interested in biomedical science will benefit from studying a biomedical science degree to become a biomedical scientist.

Students can study biomedical science at the undergraduate or postgraduate level, with undergraduate degree programs taking three to four years of full time study to complete, and postgraduate degree programs taking one to two years of full time study to complete.

Throughout an undergraduate biomedical science degree students will typically study modules such as physiology, life sciences, cell biology, genetics, neuroscience, pharmacology, cellular biochemistry and microbiology. A postgraduate biomedical science degree will usually focus on similar subject areas with further in depth research projects and assignments.
