Our BSc Biomedical Sciences with a Modern Language course will enable you to develop your language skills while studying a range of medically related disciplines, including physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience, cell biology, microbiology, anatomy and histology, genetics, biochemistry and immunology. You will learn how to apply biology-based science for medical use through research, health monitoring or treatment. You will benefit from the course's strong focus on practical experience, which provides a sound basis for a career at the forefront of medical research, as well as other roles both within and outside the lab. We offer French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin for the language component of the course, which includes a year abroad on a research placement. Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future. **Connect with other languages students** Learn alongside other students taking a variety of language degrees at the University, giving you the opportunity to practice your skills with your fellow students and make new friends. **Study abroad** Placements are available at 25 universities throughout Europe and in China and Japan. **Foundation year available** You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our foundation course first. **Flexibility to transfer between courses** You can transfer away from this course to most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later. You can only transfer onto it if you have completed the required language units in Year 1.
