Medical Science focuses on the cutting edge science that underpins modern medicine, fostering new discoveries and technologies which improve healthcare. You will study a comprehensive range of topics within medical science, and gain an in-depth understanding of how our bodies work, how disease is treated and how new technology is evolving in this exciting field.
You can choose to study Medical Sciences through selecting one of two possible pathways. Each pathway provides a strong foundation in medical science, but you can choose to concentrate on a broad approach to medical science or focus on the specific role of psychology in medical science.
Whichever pathway you choose, you can opt to spend a minimum of 30 weeks in a practical setting in industry in your third year, ensuring that you graduate with demonstrable scientific skills and the ability to undertake your own original research for the benefit of medical science.
As a graduate from this course, you'll be well-placed for a career in scientific, technical or research fields.
