Course summary

A flexible programme that allows you to pursue diverse interests at the interface of biology and clinical sciences.

Based around a core structure of practical training in cutting-edge molecular biosciences –including CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technologies – the course provides an advanced training in the research and transferable skills that are valued by employers.

An impressive range of optional modules in diverse areas of biomedicine – infection, cancer, reproductive technology, neuroscience, ageing, bioinformatics, drug development and biotechnology – allow you to develop your own specific biomedical interests. An extended research project in the summer months allows advanced, independent investigation in an area that relates to your programme of study.

Biomedicine is a particular research strength at the University of Kent, and the curriculum has been designed by world-leading experts within their fields. Connections with the clinical community ensure that you have access to the interface between biological science and medicine, and a true insight into how biomedical research improves patient care and changes lives.

The programme offers a progression route to PhD level of study for those wishing to pursue a research career, while transferable skills development supports access to careers in clinical trials, public engagement, scientific writing, industrial research, and many other career structures within and outside the laboratory.

Teaching and assessment

Assessment involves a mixture of practical classes, innovative continuous assessment to gain maximum transferable and professional skills, and examinations, depending on the optional modules selected.

The programme aims to:

  • provide an excellent quality of postgraduate-level education in the field of biomedicine
  • promote engagement with research into biomedicine and inspire students to pursue scientific careers inside or outside of the laboratory
  • provide a research-led, inspiring learning environment
  • provide a regional postgraduate progression route for the advanced study of biomedical science
