Course summary

About this course
The BSc (Hons) Medical Biology with Foundation course gives a comprehensive understanding of human biology from a medical perspective, both in terms of the causes of disease, and the methods and technologies used to treat disease. As well as teaching the human biology aspects of medical biology, the course is also designed to demonstrate key biotechnological principles and advancements pertinent to the medical technology, biomedical technology and pharmaceutical job markets. The foundation year (Level 3) emphasises the development of the academic and study skills required for success in higher education and introduces you to the fundamentals of the science of biology. In the second year (HE4) you will learn the fundamental aspects of human biology (from the molecular to the organ level). You will also be introduced to the principles of scientific investigation. In the third (HE5) and fourth (HE6) years, you will build on these themes by looking at them from a medical perspective, both in terms of the causes of disease, and the methods and technologies used to treat disease. The use of technology in medical research will also be studied.
