Hence, the molecular basis of health primarily predicts and elucidates disease, rather than vice versa. Diseases in Biomedical Sciences are presented not as fixed clinico-pathological entities (“spot diagnosis”), but are viewed as dynamic molecular processes that overlap in time and quality with normal biology. A rational framework is provided for conceptualising the molecular structure and function in terms of human health and disease. As an undergraduate on our degree programme, you will be part of a community dedicated to understanding disease processes and developing techniques on which lives - certainly the quality of life - may depend. You will have the opportunity to develop your interests in a way that will enable you to secure a satisfying career in medical research, in health care, in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology or food industries, academia and many other areas.

Aim of the Programme

Our degree is aimed at producing graduates who are  competent in the diagnosis and monitoring of disease, management of public health promotion, teaching and application of research skills in the field of Biomedical Sciences and further study.

Programme Structure

The duration of the programme is 4 years of full-time study. The courses within the degree programme are designed to provide students with a grasp of the many elements of the Biomedical Sciences and other topics appropriate to their future careers as Biomedical Scientists, while also offering specialisation by their choice of certain components of the programme. The common courses provide the students with relevant knowledge of the many aspects of the Biomedical Sciences and the students will develop an appreciation of the complex nature of the responses of the human body in many pathological conditions. This multidisciplinary approach should increase the student’s ability to communicate with specialists in many other areas of the Biomedical Sciences and allow greater flexibility of professionals in this rapidly developing field.

The programme is also tailored to suit the needs of individual students. The final part of the programme consists of training in specialist areas of the Biomedical Sciences. Thus, one course is selected by the student from a range of four specialist options (Medical Microbiology, Medical Parasitology, Clinical Biochemistry and Cellular Pathology) to fulfil their own career requirements. The more-student-oriented parts of the courses include critical appraisal of a specific topic using scientific literature, a substantial laboratory-based research project and a period of laboratory practical placement. Thus, students will continue to develop their intellectual skills while at the same time gaining knowledge in the Biomedical Sciences so that they will be able to improve laboratory diagnosis in this and other countries.
