This four-year extended degree includes a preparatory year (Year 0) which provides the background necessary for entry to our Biomedical Science BSc (Hons) course and is aimed at those who have little or no scientific background. The course is also suitable if you wish to change your subject area or for those whose secondary level science grades have not matched their expectations. Extended degree students join the level 3 programme (Foundation Year) for the first year of study towards a Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Science. Throughout this four-year degree, we'll help build your knowledge and understanding of the molecules, structures, systems and processes which underpin normal cell, tissue and body functioning. You'll be able to independently critically evaluate and develop ideas on issues, methodologies and processes within the biomedical science field.
