The Applied Biosciences degree explores life at all levels from chemicals, molecules, and cells to organ systems. You will also explore human health and illness and how they are managed in the context of contemporary research, as well as how populations, communities, and the environment influence health and illness.
Course content and assessments have been designed to help you develop both theoretical knowledge and understanding, as well as the practical skills to enhance your career and academic opportunities.
Each year, the course is reviewed to ensure it includes the major causes of illness and death globally, as researched by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as well as the major causes of sickness absence from the workplace, to give you a rounded understanding of the way disease affects human life.
This course has been mapped to the Royal Society of Biology (RSB) Accreditation Matrix. This means that when you graduate you may be eligible to apply for professional registration with the RSB and then as a Registered Scientist (RSci) with The Science Council to receive accreditation (additional costs may apply).
Biosciences are a varied, interesting, and important area to study and we’ll explore technical theory from both chemical and molecular levels through to the human body as a whole.
Practical elements are another key focus of the course and you will be expected to perform advanced hands-on experiments which include computer-based activities. Combining the two helps to solidify your knowledge of the subject and prepares you for your career.
