About the course
BSc Biomedical Sciences courses accredited by the Royal Society of Biology
The modern biomedical scientist needs to be familiar with a wide range of subject disciplines. This is why our Biomedical Sciences degree provides all students with a sound grounding in compulsory subject areas.
The course also allows you to develop good practical, analytical and transferable skills applicable to a wide range of employment opportunities such as medicine, MSc and PhD study, pharmaceutical research, pathology and diagnosis, clinical trials and data management. You will be encouraged to exercise leadership, initiative and responsibility, and to appreciate the need for continual professional development.
The aim of the BSc Biomedical Sciences (Genetics) course is to emphasise how the role of various genetic mutations alter cellular processes and biomechanical pathways in normal metabolism, and also how these pathways may be altered during specific human disease. You will also learn how the genome project will provide new insights and therapies for the treatment of genetic diseases.
In addition you will study the main subject areas in biosciences and medically related research. These subject areas include biochemistry, genetics, cell and molecular biology, immunology, and anatomy and physiology, as related to human health, disease and treatment.
