About Your Course
By understanding the human body and how it functions in health and disease from a molecular and cellular level, you will explore the biology of human beings and their relationship with their environment. This course offers you a thorough theoretical and practical understanding of biomedical sciences. You will be introduced to human anatomy, relating structure to function, and explore the functional integrity of the human organism. You will also have a brief introduction to the principle of homeostasis in physiological control in healthy humans. Many modules studied have a laboratory component enabling you to gain an in-depth appreciation of the workings of the human body and of the rapid technological advances being made in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
You will be taught in our state-of-the art biomedical science laboratories including Microbiology labs. There is a handson approach to learning, using lectures, tutorials and laboratory practicals. You will have the option to take part in our exchange programme for either part or all of your second year – previous students have studied in America and Australia. The course will further your employability by providing technical and laboratory skills, critical thinking skills and team working skills.
This course prepares you for employment in a number of different scientific areas, including the pharmaceutical industry, scientific research, clinical trials, scientific writing, diagnostic laboratories, the food industry and teaching. In your final year you will study an integrative studies module with input from our Business Start-Up unit here at the University, providing you with valuable enterprise skills and knowledge. You can also further your studies on our MSc or MRes Biomedical Sciences courses.
