Course summary

Gain an understanding of human health and the causes, prevention and treatment of disease. You’ll be prepared for roles in biomedical research.

This course is for you if you’d like to work in a field that tackles global health challenges such as curing 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.

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.


Specialist teaching is influenced by the expertise of academics in the Department and includes areas such as cell biology, biodiversity and ecology, evolutionary biology, genomics, plant science, microbiology and immunology, neuroscience, developmental biology and stem cells, structural molecular biology, cancer genetics and biotechnology.


You'll develop the knowledge and skills needed to work in a variety of fields, such as pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, education, environment, or roles in agricultural, medical and chemical laboratories. Many of our graduates also choose to go on to postgraduate study in preparation for academic or industry-based research careers.

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 and science teaching.


You may gain a competitive edge in the graduate job market by taking a placement year. You’ll work full-time in a role that might be undertaken by a graduate, where you’ll broaden your experience and transferable skills.

There are a wide range of opportunities, from working in marketing for a pharmaceutical company to a lab-based role at a research institute. We have links with some of industry's leading companies. Recent employers include Lilly, Field Studies Council, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Oxford Gene Technology, AstraZeneca, Genesys and LifeArc.

Placement opportunities can't be guaranteed but you will receive tailored support from our specialist team to help you secure a placement.
