What will I learn?

How do human beings stay healthy? What are the factors involved in disease transmission? Studying the human health biological sciences degree looks at answering these questions.At Brunel, we understand that your specialist knowledge should be built on a sound grounding of all the areas of biomedical sciences. This means that your first year will cover areas such as the human body, biochemistry and research skills. As you continue through your degree you will study the specialist area of human health and learn about the role of infectious organisms in disease and how human activities can lead to disease transmission.And if you change your mind about your specialist area, don’t worry. The flexibility of our course at Brunel means that you can switch to another specialist pathway in the second year or even take the general Biomedical Sciences BSc.Our Biomedical Sciences (Human Health) BSc can be studied over three years full-time, or four years full-time with a one-year work placement between years two and three.The Royal Society of Biology has awarded its accreditation to all of Brunel’s BSc Biomedical Sciences programmes.
