Course Information

The BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree is designed to equip you with a fundamental understanding of how science underpins the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. The degree reflects both the theoretical knowledge and applied clinical laboratory skills required to be a biomedical scientist.

Biomedical scientists are at the forefront of our modern healthcare system working in partnership with medical practitioners and health care professionals, to perform many different roles in the NHS, as well as in academia and the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors.

As a biomedical scientist you are likely to be involved in the diagnosis of disease, supporting the work of clinical departments, and developing and evaluating the next generation of treatments that could improve patient outcomes.  A biomedical science degree also provides the foundation for graduate entry programs, including medicine, dentistry or the more recently established Physician Associate (PA) program for clinical practice within the NHS.
