**Course overview** We offer an exciting, fast-track Medical Sciences curriculum, enabling students to gain a full BSc University degree in two years. Graduates will be well suited to apply a year ahead of their peers for a place in a UK medical school, or take their degree and enter the professional job market early. Students graduate with a deep understanding of health and disease, a deep theoretical appreciation and practical laboratory experience of how disease is identified, assessed, and its treatment monitored. You will be equipped for graduate entry to medicine, as well as careers in areas as diverse as the medical and allied research institutes, health agency laboratories, bioanalytical medical genetics and forensic units, the pharmaceutical industry and health and safety. A typical week involves a minimum 15 hours contact time with academic staff in a variety of forms including: lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops or practicals. Practicals and projects are conducted in the state-or-the art Science Centre, said to be the largest teaching laboratory in Europe. This desirable and transferable Bachelor’s degree will give you the skills and experience to have a successful career. **Accelerated two year degree** A two-year accelerated degree is an intensive degree programme and the final award is the same as the award that would be given at the end of an equivalent three-year degree. The intensity of learning is far greater than the intensity of learning on a three-year degree, and the course is designed for high achieving candidates who are looking to fast-track their career.
