Our extended degree in biomedical science explores human health and disease. We focus on many areas of medical and biosciences, examining the mechanisms of disease, diagnostic pathways and therapeutic intervention. Our lecturers are experienced academics in areas including cell biology, cancer biology, microbiology and haematology.
This extended biomedical science course begins with a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level learning. After this, you'll progress to our three-year degree, which includes practical modules, real-life clinical case studies and a research project. The course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science, a leading professional body in the field.
We provide exciting work experience opportunities at a range of organisations, from multinational firms, government agencies and the NHS to smaller companies engaged in research, analytical services and manufacturing. You'll graduate ready for roles in the public and private healthcare sectors, from the NHS, Medical Research Council and Health and Safety Executive to forensic laboratories and pharmaceutical companies. Former students have gone on to work for GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), Dyson, Eon, PS Analytical, E-liquids and NHS hospitals.
