Summary

This is the study of life, from the fundamental building blocks of our genes to the largest animals that inhabit our planet; how living things work – how they interact with one another and their surroundings, and how they change and evolve; and it involves the application of biomedical science to medical/clinical use.

You will learn how to use analytical and technical procedures to monitor and improve human health and to investigate disease and you will study the science that is broadly similar to the pre-clinical component of a medical degree. You will also learn how to ask questions, make observations, and analyse evidence – in theory work and through practical laboratory sessions – and to present and communicate your findings clearly while developing your computer literacy and research skills.

Career Options

Students graduate with either a BSc in Biological Science OR a BSc in Biomedical Science. BSc Biological Science graduates pursue careers in research, industry and teacher training. BSc Biomedical Science graduates pursue careers in research, industry or enter graduate entry degree programmes (e.g. medicine, pharmacy, veterinary) or engage in Biomedical research. The BSc in Biomedical Science does not qualify to work in a hospital diagnostic laboratory, although graduates do work in clinical research.

We currently offer the following postgraduate courses:

  • MSc Biology (Research)
  • MSc Immunology and Global Health (Taught)
  • PhD Biology
