Course summary

Biomedical scientists work at the cutting edge of research and medicine, helping to solve some of the most threatening diseases and conditions facing humankind. Biomedical science has laid the foundation for medical breakthroughs in everything from COVID-19 to cancer, diabetes to heart disease, bone strength to brain development and more.St George’s Biomedical Science BSc degree provides a fascinating insight into the biology-based science behind health, disease and medical intervention. It covers a diverse range of subjects, from fundamental aspects of cell and molecular biology, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and genetics to the investigation of the disease process, including diagnosis and treatment.In Years 1 and 2 you'll build a solid knowledge and understanding of cellular, molecular and medical sciences. In Year 3, you’ll have the chance to focus your learning in either healthcare or medicine, graduating in one of 10 specialisms. There is also the opportunity to undertake a Professional Training Year within industry, research, government or the NHS. We have strong links with professional bodies, including the British Pharmacological Society (BPS). The course will prepare you for career options in medicine, research, management or education, as well as specialised laboratory work and areas such as forensic medicine, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, clinical trials coordination or biomedical product marketing. The transferable skills you will gain on this degree will also allow you to consider wider careers options such as law, finance and teaching. **Course highlights**- Learn anatomy in a dissection room through demonstrator-led sessions (prosection).- Develop essential lab techniques in our modern teaching and research laboratories.- Excellent links with industry and employers, which gives you a head-start in finding a job when you graduate.- Depending on your grades, at the end of your degree you may have the opportunity to transfer onto either our Biomedical Science MSci or our Medicine (MBBS) course.**About St George’s, University of London**Established in 1752, St George’s is the UK’s specialist health university and is dedicated to medical and health sciences education, training and research.
