Are you interested in a career in the health services, in a pharmaceutical company or in medical research? Would you like to explore the biochemical processes that occur in the human body, and particularly diseases like cancer or the response to infection? Are you intrigued to learn how medicines are discovered and how they work? The School of Biosciences provides a stimulating, supportive research-led environment for teaching and learning, encouraging you to achieve your full academic and personal potential. We have excellent links with the local NHS trust, and with the pharmaceutical industry, and professionals from both of these important sectors teach on our programme. The Biomedical Science degree programme is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). This is the standard three-year programme, however, there are also two four-year programmes available where you can spend an extra year studying abroad or working in industry or the NHS.
