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.

The Master of Biomedical Sciences (MBiomed) provides you with the same core skills and knowledge as the BSc but with a greater exposure to research and advanced practical techniques. You’ll study master's-level units and carry out a major research project, giving you ideal preparation for postgraduate study or a career in research.

Put your learning into practice

Alongside teaching, our academics carry out research, from cell and molecular biology, microbiology, neurobiology to evolutionary and plant biology. You’ll contribute to this research and learn how biosciences is applied to real-world problems when you work on your own research project.
