Course summary

Our Biomedical Science degree offers an exciting, fast-paced learning experience and provides you with a deep understanding of the science behind human health and disease. We teach you how to explore the biochemical processes that occur in the human body. You will learn how the human body responds to disease, and how to use your knowledge to help identify diseases of all kinds. This is combined with rigorous study of the body in health and disease at all levels (body, organ, tissue, cellular and molecular).

Biomedical scientists are responsible for conducting vitally important scientific tests, which underpin the diagnosis and treatment of human disease. This cutting-edge scientific analysis contributes greatly to the clinical outcomes of patients. Taught by a combination of academic experts and clinical professionals, this wide-ranging programme is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

Learning and Assessment

You’ll learn through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical work. Enquiry-based learning (EBL) and problem-based learning (PBL) approaches are used at appropriate points in the curriculum.

Assessment is by a combination of coursework assignments, class tests, presentations and examinations. On average, 22% of assessment is by examination (averaged across four years of the programme).
