Course summary

The search for new ways to diagnose and treat diseases is one of the most challenging and exciting areas of science. On our Medical Biology BSc(Hons) degree course, you’ll have the chance to explore cellular biology and molecular genetics and lay down the foundations for a fulfilling career in medical research, the pharmaceutical industry or other healthcare specialism. If you want to make your mark on medical research and set yourself up to be part of the teams that could be making dramatic breakthroughs in the coming decades, studying with us could give you just the edge you need to succeed. * This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology (https://www.rsb.org.uk/education/accreditation). * In the early stages of the degree, you’ll study alongside our other biological sciences students on certain modules, building up your knowledge to enable you to investigate advanced topics further down the line – topics such as molecular genetics, immunology and cancer. * Through lectures, seminars and specialised lab sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from our expert staff with doctoral-level expertise in their subjects and experience across the biological sciences. * In your third year, you’ll get the chance to step out of the classroom and into the real world on an optional placement year working for an organisation related to your areas of interest. This is when you’ll really be able to see your knowledge in action, pick up invaluable skills for your future career and boost your employability to help you hit the ground running after graduation. * As a student on this course you’ll be able to apply for undergraduate membership of the Biochemical Society (https://www.biochemistry.org/Membership/Join/Undergraduate.aspx) and The Physiological Society (UK) (https://www.physoc.org/undergraduate-membership). You’ll also be eligible for student affiliate membership of the Royal Society of Biology (https://www.rsb.org.uk/membership) and upon successful graduation be eligible to apply for one year associate membership (https://www.rsb.org.uk/membership/individual-membership/membership-benefits), this can help open up networks at a crucial time when applying for jobs. The tutors are really supportive in various aspects of university life, from help with my studies in the first year, to placement and personal support in my third and subsequent years. ~ Covadonga Fernandez-Valdes, Medical Genetics BSc(Hons).
