Our focus on transferable and multidisciplinary skills give you a range of employment options when you graduate. We give you the opportunity to take your learning to the next level with placements. Gain hands-on experience both at the university and in local industrial laboratories. We will support you to organise short placements throughout your studies. Alternatively, you can choose to take part in a year-long external placement in industry. Our Applied Biosciences courses have distinct award titles but these titles represent a specialism, not a separate degree course. The Applied Biosciences suite will share all first year modules with the existing Biomedical Science degree and have the same entry criteria. You will be able to swap between courses at the end of your first year, but once you start your second year, you will need to remain on your chosen specialist route. Once you have studied all subjects in your first year, you can make an informed choice about which area you enjoy and would like to specialise in.
