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. Our Biomedical Science degree is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). This option contains an additional year to the standard three year programme where you will work in industry or the NHS. This four year sandwich degree is also accredited by the Society of Biology (SOB).
