Biomedical sciences forms an important component of medical science, informing, supporting and improving human healthcare and medicine. It is a broad based degree providing students with a graduate level understanding of how to effectively analyse and interpret results to support the diagnosis, monitoring, treatment and prevention of disease.
You will gain an understanding of the theories, concepts and principles relevant to a range of different disciplines within biomedical sciences as well as the wider application of these to address societal needs. You will develop the skills to evaluate relevant scientific literature to understand how evidence-based decisions may be made in biomedical sciences and ultimately to conduct and interpret your own biomedical science research.
Year three provides the option to seek that all-important chance to experience some essential and fascinating insights for your future career by completing a 30-week placement. Biomedical science is a rapidly growing area of study and graduates are highly sought after by a diverse range of organisations, not only medical, but those involved in other scientific and related technical research and development.
“Biomedical science is a fascinating branch of medicine which allows you to explore and understand how the body works as well as being able to understand how medicines are used to treat illnesses. With BU's brand new labs we are able to explore these different techniques of developing these medicines and understanding the human body.”
