Course summary

This course will prepare you to tackle global health challenges, such as antibiotic resistance, cancer and Parkinson’s disease. You’ll be trained to be a research scientist of the future by exploring aspects of modern biosciences related to humans and medical research.

You’ll study a broad range of units on human health and the causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. Topics include genetics, genomics, human physiology, cancer, pathology, infection and immunity, molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry and pharmacology. This course has been developed in collaboration with the Department for Health and the Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology at Bath to give you a greater exposure to subjects in human biology and pharmacology.

This course has a research career focus and is therefore not intended for subsequent registration by the Health and Care Professions Council. Instead, you will develop fundamental scientific and experimental skills, preparing you for work as a scientist in biomedical research.

Prepare for your future

You’ll graduate with the knowledge and skills for work in a variety of areas, such as the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, environment and education. You could also go on to further study, such as a master’s or PhD.

Studying a biosciences degree requires you to apply a broad skill set to the understanding of complex processes. This skill set is also useful in a range of other careers, such as business, management, marketing and science teaching.
