Biomedical Health

**This four-year course incorporates undergraduate and postgraduate study, leading to a masters qualification. It is also an excellent way to fund postgraduate study: student loan funding is available for all four years of your full-time study.** **WHY STUDY MSCI BIOMEDICAL HEALTH AT DERBY?** - We will provide you with a firm grounding in human physiology and anatomy, biochemistry, genetics, medical microbiology, human diseases, environmental health and global health. This will enable you to understand the basis of human disease, diagnosis and treatment. At the same time, you’ll explore how the biomedical regulation of the human body can be affected by a person’s physical wellbeing, their lifestyle choices, their environment, and the infectious diseases to which they can be exposed. - You can hone your practical know-how in our newly-upgraded learning facilities. They include high-specification laboratories with modern instrumentation and specialist containment facilities for the growth and manipulation of bacteria and viruses as well as the sequencing and characterisation of DNA. We have also opened a student research laboratory which gives you a dedicated space for your independent study project at the end of your degree. - All of our Biomedical Health teaching team are active human health researchers as well as experienced teachers, so your studies will be informed by the latest developments and innovative thinking. **WHAT YOU'LL COVER** - The first two years of the MSci are taught alongside our BSc (Hons) Biomedical Health. At the end of the second year, you can continue to progress on the MSci route. In your third year you will undertake a research project where you can focus on a particular area of biomedical or public health, and in your fourth year you will then specialise in your chosen area and undertake a substantial independent study at masters level. You'll be taught through a mixture of lectures, tutorials, and laboratory practical experience. **HOW YOU'RE ASSESSED** - You’re assessed using a range of written assignments, including portfolios, practical reports, and data analysis, as well as computer-based assessments, poster presentations, and seminar presentations. **YOUR CAREER** - As a biomedical health graduate, you’ll be equipped with skills which put you at the forefront of advances in medical health – and the MSci qualification adds real substance to your CV, giving you an edge in the job market. You’ll be well prepared for careers in medical research, health charities, medical and biotechnology industries, and the government health sector. This course is also an excellent foundation if you want to progress to further postgraduate qualifications in subjects such as medicine and dentistry.
