Course summary

Our four-year MSci Biomedicine is for those with a broad interest in human life processes and disease. Lancaster University is ranked fourth in the UK for biosciences in The Guardian University Guide 2020, and fifth in the UK for biological sciences in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

The MSci is a four-year integrated master’s with three years of undergraduate study followed by a year of study at master’s level. The additional year of study and higher qualification can enhance your job prospects, or give you the experience to decide whether a research career might be for you.

Our biomedicine courses offer more flexibility than our IBMS-accredited BSc Biomedical Science by allowing you to tailor your degree to your personal and professional interests within the field of biomedicine. You will study biochemistry, cell biology, genetics and physiology - which are at the heart of modern medical and health research. These subjects are taught with a particular emphasis on the molecules and mechanisms fundamental to life processes and how these are disrupted by disease.

In your first year, you will gain a through grounding in the general areas of biomedicine through the study of 15 wide-ranging core modules, including Biomedical Science in Practice, Infection and Immunity, and Protein Biochemistry.

In your second and third years, you will study a small number or core modules such as Medical Microbiology and Medical Genetics. You will then select your remaining modules from a wide range of options including: Cellular Pathology, DNA Technology, Clinical Immunology, and Tropical Diseases.

During your degree, you will conduct your own laboratory-based project and benefit from the research experience of our internationally renowned academics. You will also receive in-depth training in the key techniques associated with modern biomedical practice.

At the end of your third year you can either choose to graduate with a BSc or, if you achieve the necessary criteria, to proceed to the fourth year of the MSci, which is master’s level study. In your fourth year, you will study Immunology, Diseases of the Brain and Molecular Basis of Cancer, plus one other optional module and a research project.

The facilities for studying biomedicine at Lancaster University are excellent. We have invested over £4 million in new life science teaching laboratories, which you will use for practical learning and your dissertation project. Around 50% of the contact time on the degree is used for practical and workshop activities in the laboratory or in PC labs.
