Biomedical Science (Including Placement Year)

Located in the School of Biological Sciences, we are one of the largest schools at the University. Two-thirds of our research is rated "world-leading" or "internationally excellent" (REF 2014) and it covers a wide spectrum of biology. On our BSc Biomedical Science, you apply the concepts of biochemistry and cell biology to the study of health and disease in the human body. You learn about the onset, progression, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and are taught by research-active academic experts. You undertake practical work in our state-of-the-art laboratories, enabling you to gain the skills needed for a career or further study within the profession. You can spend your third year on a placement year with the NHS in an IBMS-approved lab. You complete a portfolio of assessed work, which results in HCPC registration after completion of the course. Our courses are an exciting challenge and our students love studying with us, giving us an impressive 90% satisfaction score (NSS 2016).
