This unique course allows you to work towards one of four possible degree titles: Biomedical Science, Applied Biomedical Science, Biomedical Science (sandwich) and Healthcare Science (Life Sciences).
This programme has been designed to develop Biomedical Scientists who will play a vital role in modern healthcare, but the programme also follows a research-active curriculum, promoting development of a wide range of subject-specific and transferrable skills valuable to employers. The programme integrates traditional lectures and laboratory-based learning with a range of approaches to reflect different ways of learning, such as workshops, seminars, case-based learning, group work, one to one tutorials.
