Learn about the inner workings of the human body through this highly practical course, which is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science and was developed in partnership with practising NHS laboratory scientists. You will learn about the systems that underpin all living organisms from a cellular, tissue, organ and whole body perspective. From this basis, you will study the diseases that affect each area and the mechanisms that the body uses to combat them. This degree is geared towards biomedical careers, and you could go on to work as a biomedical scientist within a hospital or pharmaceutical laboratory. Alternatively, you could work in academic laboratories, clinical trials, scientific publishing or the pharmaceutical industry. You may also decide to study for higher research degrees or commence a medical, dentistry or veterinary degree course.
