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.

At the end of your first year of study, you can choose to continue your multidisciplinary studies in biomedical sciences and gain a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences award by studying modules such as: Infectious Diseases, Biology of Cancer, Clinical Biochemistry, Clinical Immunology, Medical Genetics and Blood Diseases. Or 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 Pathway)
  • BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (Molecular Biochemistry Pathway)
  • BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (Pharmacological Sciences Pathway)
  • BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (Medical Microbiology Pathway)

Royal Society of Biology accreditation
Our range of BSc Biomedical Science courses are accredited by the Royal Society of Biology (RSB), so you can be sure you'll graduate with the expert capabilities demanded by employers in biological sciences. When you graduate you'll also receive one year's free RSB membership, offering valuable networking opportunities as you enter the world of work.

Institute of Biomedical Science accreditation
To work as a biomedical scientist in the UK, you must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Our IBMS degree accreditation ensures our degree courses have a curriculum that meets the HCPC standards of proficiency for biomedical scientists. This accreditation also ensures you will receive a wide-ranging, research-informed scientific education and you will develop practical skills and experience that employers value. This programme will enable you to apply to register as a biomedical scientist after completing the IBMS certificate of competence portfolio in a suitable IBMS approved lab.

Employability is built into every module of the course, so by the end of your course you will be confident in group-work, managing your own time, working in a laboratory, writing papers, performing risk assessments and becoming a biomedical science practitioner, all valuable traits sought after by employers.

Some of our students have been successful in obtaining work experience or placements between the second and third year, working in industry, or with biotech companies. This will significantly enhance your practical skills and offers an opportunity to develop career contacts. Some of our graduates have managed to secure immediate employment with their placement provider upon graduation.

You will also be able to take part in our study abroad programme for either part or all of your second year - previous students have studied in Japan, America and Australia.

Our course prepares you for employment in a wide range of 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 our university, providing you with valuable enterprise skills and knowledge. If you are interested in a career as a biomedical/healthcare scientist in the NHS you can undertake the NHS Scientist Training Programme after you have completed our Biomedical Sciences degree. Many of our graduates also go on to further study, including MSc, PhD, teacher training and physicians associates courses.
