Course summary

Combine the study of medical and clinical sciences with cutting-edge scientific methods and practice, and prepare for a career where you can make a difference - in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, academic research, or even as a doctor.Now, more than ever, we are aware of the importance of understanding and managing health and disease, as well as the need for the development of new and effective treatments through scientific research.On our BSc in Clinical Sciences, you will study medical sciences, alongside gaining a foundation in related laboratory and research skills. The course brings together the expertise of two areas where Leicester’s reputation is truly global – Medicine and Biological Sciences. You will learn from our academics who are leading world-class research in areas such as genetics, cancer, heart disease and diabetes. Their research continues to have a real impact on health and wellbeing.The first two years of this course closely follow our Medicine curriculum. You will get a thorough understanding of areas such as anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry, all with a clinical focus. We have more than 40 years’ experience of medical education here at Leicester, which means that you will benefit from excellent training and you will learn from expert academics and medical practitioners working day-to-day in the NHS in a wide range of clinical disciplines.Alongside this strong foundation in the medical sciences, you will learn foundation laboratory and research skills. You develop these techniques further in Year 3 by undertaking your own analytical research project. You will receive additional training in cutting-edge medicine through three specialised ‘precision medicine’ modules in your final year which have been specially developed for this course.You will learn in outstanding facilities. Teaching takes place in our George Davies Centre, a modern building that harnesses the very latest technology and resources for interdisciplinary learning and research. You will also have access to the School of Biological Sciences’ state-of-the-art laboratories for practical sessions and research. You will learn anatomy through full-body dissection in the Medical School’s dissection room; we are one of the few universities that still offers this facility. If you want to become a doctor, this course offers you the chance to transfer at the end of Year 1 onto Year 2 of our MBChB Medical Degree. (NB. Transfer is dependent on you meeting the academic and entry criteria, and there being places available. There can be up to four Medicine transfer places available each year but there may be some years when transfer places are not available.)
