Program Description

During your bachelor in Biomedical Sciences - Genetics (with Placement) (BSc), you will study specialist areas that will teach you how the role of various genetic mutations alters cellular processes and biomechanical pathways in normal metabolism, and also how these pathways may be altered during specific human diseases.

And if you change your mind about your specialist area, don’t worry. The flexibility of the bachelor in Biomedical Sciences - Genetics (with Placement) (BSc) at Brunel means that you can switch to another specialist pathway in the second year or even take the general Biomedical Sciences BSc.

The Royal Society of Biology has awarded its accreditation to all undergraduate Biomedical Sciences courses. This means you can be confident that your bachelor in Biomedical Sciences - Genetics (with Placement) (BSc) will prepare you for the working world – and your prospective employers will know this too.

You'll receive a one-year’s membership as an Associate Member once you graduate, integrating you into the sector with access to key contacts and up-to-date knowledge.

The placement year costs £1,385.
