Course Summary

The Biomedical Science MSci is a continuous, integrated four year programme, aimed at students interested in science and research, providing enhanced experience and skills transferable to employment or further study, and equipping students to apply for PhD courses or research posts in industry. In addition, the generalist research skills gained, in addition to the advanced science, will be advantageous for many non-science careers..There are significant opportunities within the UK and elsewhere in the EU to undertake your final year research project.The four year MSci Biomedical Science course covers the range of biological sciences that underpin medicine and emphasises the wide range of modern developments in medicine and the biomedical field more generally. The first two years of the MSci Biomedical Science are identical to the BSc Biomedical Science, sharing learning with medical and health science students at St George’s, and provides coverage of the fundamental aspects of cell and molecular biology, anatomy, physiology and pharmacology. Course highlights include: •Shared campus with one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK, with involvement of clinical staff in teaching, and opportunities for work experience in NHS laboratories•Many students progress onto further study in scientific research or medicine•Teaching is informed by the latest research and the course is designed to evolve with current practice•Learn anatomy through demonstrator-led whole body prosection•As part of your intensive research project you will work with professional research groups investigating real medical and health problems and learning how biomedical research makes a difference to lives•Opportunity for final year study in European institutes, as part of the Erasmus scheme•Dedicated focus on acquiring first rate biomedical research skills honed through research project and specific modules•Careers advice embedded into teaching
