What will I learn?

Biomedical Science is the study of the human body in health and disease. Our three-year BSc course covers everything from human physiology and pharmacology, to molecular and cell biology, helping you to define the future of clinical medicine. You’ll study the basis of diseases such as coronavirus and cancer, and challenges such as hearing loss. You’ll explore therapies that use stem cell technology, and discover how we develop drug treatment for inflammatory disease.We're proud to be one of only a few universities in the UK to offer undergraduate students the opportunity to perform full body cadaveric dissection, providing you with an excellent foundation for understanding human physiology and developmental biology.From your first year you’ll study a range of biomedical science modules, with the freedom to explore optional topics from across the breadth of bioscience, such as genetics, microbiology, evolution or biochemistry. This flexibility allows you to study biomedical science in greater depth, keep your interests broad or even switch to another programme within the biosciences. No matter what modules you choose to study, you’ll develop practical skills that make our graduates attractive to employers including project management, problem solving, communication skills and data analysis.We’ll give you plenty of opportunities to apply your new skills and knowledge too. You’ll be in the lab completing in-depth practicals, learning about the human body through cadaveric dissection, and even sharing your own knowledge and benefiting from others' expertise through peer assisted study sessions.As you progress through your degree you’ll be able to specialise in key areas such as Stem Cells and Cancer, Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology; and Developmental and Cell Biology. Whichever specialism you’re interested in, your personal tutor will support you to tailor your degree to your interests and career goals.If you want to pursue a career in science, apply your skills in industry, or continue your studies, Sheffield biosciences graduates are highly sought after due to their specialist laboratory and field skills, ability to solve problems, handle and analyse data, and effectively communicate complex ideas to a range of audiences.Our students secure roles with leading scientific organisations like GSK, AstraZeneca, Cancer Research, the Environment Agency, Wildlife Trusts, and the Natural History Museum. Transferable skills are embedded and developed throughout our degrees, which means year on year many of our graduates join top 100 employers like the BBC, Deloitte, the Civil Service, and the NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme. You can also apply your degree to other varied careers including bioinformatics, marketing and science communication, teaching and science policy. Some students go on to further study.If you want to gain work experience as a recognised part of your degree, we have a Biomedical Science with a Year in Industry degree at both BSc and MBiomedSci levels. You can test out a career path that you're considering between your second and third year - whether that's in the lab or applying your scientific knowledge and transferable skills in industry, and earn a salary while you're doing it.
