Understanding how these systems operate provides the opportunity to target disease.At the University of Leicester, we offer four Medical Science degree programmes alongside seven Biological Sciences degrees.

In the second and third years you will have a choice of modules from across the Biological Sciences portfolio and specialist Medical Sciences modules that will steer you towards your degree of choice.All of our Medical Sciences degrees include the option to change your programme, particularly in Year 1.The other available specialisms are:Medical Biochemistry Medical Genetics Medical MicrobiologyOur four Medical Sciences degrees allow selection of specialist modules that focus more closely on the application of biological principles to medicine.
