Course summary

This programme bridges the gap between science and medicine, enabling graduates to understand science in the context of mechanisms of disease and treatment. By fusing science with medicine, our graduates will be ideally placed to translate scientific advances into clinical practice, and to work at a high level within the biomedical sciences.

Your learning

Our innovative online teaching system allows you to learn at your own pace and explore topics in greater depth. The face-to-face teaching which follows offers more intensive, creative sessions of problem solving and learning in small groups. Practical’s and a research project support your training in laboratory skills. Combining online and face-to-face teaching means you take greater control of your academic development.

Assessment

Formative and summative assessment methods include: online and written examinations (some of which are multiple-choice or short-answer question format); coursework; poster presentations; practical skills assessments. In year three you will be required to write a project dissertation and, should you choose the professional experience module, a reflective diary on your placement.

Careers

Applied Medical Sciences differs from most biomedical science degrees in that students develop a very strong understanding of the foundations of medicine, with an emphasis on fusing science with medicine. The programme is angled towards the development of an appreciation of how science helps us to understand and treat various diseases.

This programme will enable you to become a highly skilled scientist who can make medicine work for patients. Alternatively, you might like to use your knowledge to find a career in research. You will also be able to adapt your skills to a variety of other professions where an understanding of science and medicine are crucial.
