Course summary

This course will provide you with a strong foundation in biology and chemistry, allowing you to progress onto a BSc (Hons) degree course in the School of Environment and Life Sciences.It is ideal if you want to develop your career along a biological pathway but have a non-scientific background, or you don’t meet the entry requirements for direct entry to an Honours degree. This course may also be attractive if you are returning to education or if you wish to change career direction.The full BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree will develop your understanding of human disease processes, how they are diagnosed, monitored and treated. Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the course covers the broad range of biological principles relating to the normal function of the human body, whilst allowing you to gain specialist knowledge in areas from Pathophysiology, Cell Pathology, Haematology, Clinical Immunology and Genetics.With strong industry links, optional industry placements and delivered by expert academic staff, our course will provide you with professional knowledge and the practical experience to start your career. If you are interested in how modern research underpins the development of new therapies to improve healthcare, you will benefit from our strong practical focus which allows you to develop your lab skills to become an employable biomedical scientist, or for a career in medical laboratory research in a wide range of industry sectors.You can apply for a placement year; with exclusive offers for Salford students from some employers, and the opportunity for several students to undertake the IBMS registration portfolio, providing you with a head start towards a career as a biomedical scientist. The final year of study offers flexibility in selecting a small project with an additional optional module (including Cancer: Bench to Bedside and Advances in Pathophysiology), or a significant lab research project. In either instance, you will benefit from staff research expertise and a recent £3million laboratory refurbishment within our Biomedical Research Centre.Features• Develop an understanding of biomedical changes in diseases, and the influence of genes and genetics on evolution and development• Modules are complemented with visits to local pathology laboratories and the contribution of external NHS specialists and biomedical scientists• Discover the fundamental laboratory methods used in controlling infectious diseases threatening human worldwidePlease note that an overall average mark of 60% is required to transfer onto BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science.
