Course summary

The programme is intended to provide a broad and industrially relevant set of modules, preparing students for work in industries in the chemical science or bioscience sectors. Graduates should be able to apply for a number of careers regardless of which options they have taken. Examples areas include: NHS careers, teaching, food safety, technical support roles in academic, government or private laboratories, specialist scientific sales and marketing,. Recent graduates have progressed to careers such as Assistant Research Practitioner at the Manchester Eye Hospital, laboratory work for a global company specialising in clinical trials, a neurology technician in the NHS as well as roles in the teaching and legal professions. Many of our graduates go on to further study such as masters in Physician Associate Studies, Medical Microbiology, Paramedic Science, Cognitive Neuroscience, Medical Biochemistry, Clinical Embryology and Assisted Reproduction Technology, Cardiology and Biopharmacy. Graduates have also gone on to study Ph.Ds in scientific research.The course was developed in order to close a skills gap as identified by the Leeds LEP. The course was written after consultation with a number of local employers, who informed teaching, content and assessment methods. We have formed close links with other employers and continued to elicit feedback on how well the course prepares graduates for employment. Teaching is delivered in purpose-built laboratories with industry-standard equipment and is designed to develop the key skills and knowledge demanded by employers.Throughout this course you will:Have the opportunity to design and conduct your own research project.Gain an understanding and appreciation of the chemistry and biochemistry of drug molecules: their design, synthesis and behaviour in the bodyDevelop a multidisciplinary understanding of the science of human life, health and disease at the molecular, cellular, system, organismal and environmental level.Learn about microbial processes and applications, including the opportunities for humans to exploit and benefit from these.
