Program Description

Our extended degree in biomedical science explores human health and disease. We focus on many areas of medical and biosciences, examining the mechanisms of disease, diagnostic pathways and therapeutic intervention. Our lecturers are experienced academics in areas including cell biology, cancer biology, microbiology and haematology.

This extended biomedical science course begins with a foundation year to prepare you for degree-level learning. After this, you'll progress to our three-year degree, which includes practical modules, real-life clinical case studies and a research project. The course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science, a leading professional body in the field.
