Apply the study of cell and chemical interaction to advance healthcare and the treatment of diseases. With our range of specialist pathways, you will be able to tailor your learning to suit your career interests. Our undergraduate biomedical science courses are accredited by the Royal Society of Biology.
Undergraduate Courses (1)
Learn about how the human body functions in both health and disease, and discover how advances in biomedical sciences have helped in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of illness. You will have the opportunity to carry out many of these techniques for yourself in our purpose-built modern laboratories.
You can choose to study for a combined degree award by specialising in one of our four specific pathways:
- BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Medical Biochemistry
- BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Molecular Biotechnology
- BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Pharmacological Sciences
- BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences & Medical Microbiology
Postgraduate Courses (4)
Designed for those wishing to pursue a PhD in biomedical sciences and related areas, this research-focused course will advance your research skills as well as your understanding of research methods and data analysis. You will learn how to communicate science effectively by designing posters, developing your presentation skills and using social media to disseminate your findings.
From January until September you will concentrate solely on an extended research project, working alongside staff from our Centre for Biomedical Science Research to develop your practical expertise to an advanced level. You will have a wide variety of research options to choose from within molecular biology, microbiology, pharmacology and biochemistry.
Enhance your knowledge of the major fields within biomedical sciences through self-driven independent laboratory work in our specialist lab facilities.
Engage with innovative theory and contribute to the advancement of human medicine through your own research. This course has been designed to significantly expand both your practical expertise within the field of medical biochemistry and your transferable skills. Exposure to a range of techniques, including microscopy, spectroscopy and diagnostic assays, and their associated theories will significantly develop your understanding of medical biochemistry.
Build on your existing biomedical sciences knowledge and skills to become a specialist in medical microbiology. You will practise working autonomously in the laboratory during the large practical components
of the course, using your thorough theoretical grounding as the driver for your research. You will have the opportunity to experience a range of techniques across microbiology and molecular biology, and the topics you will study, from the role of microbiology in medicine to molecular microbiology and epidemiology, will give you specialist knowledge and a variety of skills applicable to a range of careers in the field of biomedical science and microbiology.
