Course summary

Biomedical science is the study of the human body in health and disease. Our four-year BSc covers everything from human physiology and pharmacology, to molecular and cell biology. You’ll do a year-long, paid work placement as part of your degree.Our students have found placements at organisations that include RB, Eli Lilly and GSK. A placement is a great opportunity to test out a career path that you're considering, whether that's in the lab or through applying your scientific knowledge and transferable skills in industry. Many students are even offered a graduate-level job at the end of it. You'll pay reduced fees for the year you're on placement and you'll have the support you need from your tutor and the University.During your time at Sheffield you’ll study the basis of diseases such as coronavirus and cancer, and challenges such as hearing loss. You’ll explore therapies that use stem cell technology, and discover how we develop drug treatment for inflammatory disease.We're proud to be one of only a few universities in the UK to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to perform full body cadaveric dissection, providing you with an excellent foundation for understanding human physiology and developmental biology.You’ll study a range of biomedical science modules with the freedom to explore optional topics from across the biosciences such as genetics, microbiology, evolution and biochemistry. This flexibility allows you to study biomedical science in greater depth, broaden your interests or switch to another biosciences degree programme. Whatever modules you choose to study, you’ll develop the practical skills that make our graduates attractive to employers including project management, problem solving, communication skills and data analysis.We’ll give you plenty of opportunities to apply your new skills and knowledge. You’ll be in the lab completing in-depth practicals, learning about the human body through cadaveric dissection, and sharing your knowledge through peer assisted study sessions.As you progress through your degree you’ll be able to specialise in key areas such as stem cells and cancer, neuroscience, physiology, pharmacology and developmental and cell biology. Whichever your specialism, your personal tutor will support you to tailor your degree to your interests and career goals.
