This broad-based science degree integrates a wide range of subjects to promote the understanding of how the human body works and the biology of disease. You can also develop essential skills and knowledge in laboratory management. We aim to equip you with the appropriate knowledge and advanced laboratory skills to pursue laboratory careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries or become a Health Care Professional Council (HCPC) registered practitioner. You will have the opportunity to use diagnostic equipment in haematology and biochemistry, working with instruments you would see in a real clinical laboratory setting. These instruments offer ‘hands on’ experience of techniques such as gene amplification using PCR, gene sequencing, cell culture, flow cytometry, tissue staining, protein detection and bacterial growth.
