Program Description

Gain a thorough grounding in the science underpinning medicine with our new BSc in Applied Medical Sciences. You will study a comprehensive range of topics, including human anatomy and physiology, cell biology, genetics, pharmacology, and neuroscience, together with their clinical and applied relevance. You will develop an in-depth understanding of how the human body works, what happens when it goes wrong, how we currently treat disorders, and the potential for novel therapeutics.

This course provides a comprehensive grounding relevant to careers in lab research, medicine and commercial enterprise in the life sciences. We have 3 Employability strands to choose from in your second year (subject to eligibility): Medical Science in Practice, Enterprise and Innovation, and Medical Science in Research.

Note:
Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
