Why study biomedical science?
To diagnose and treat diseases effectively, we need to understand the biology of disease and the science underpinning it, as well as the latest advances in medical science.
The strong analytical, problem-solving, communication and research skills this discipline requires offers master’s-level scientists an excellent foundation for working or studying in biomedical research.
Why UWE Bristol?
MSci Biomedical Science is a practice-led course. The first three years are based around our long-running BSc(Hons) Biomedical Science.
You’ll get a strong grounding in modern biomedicine, and study the basic scientific core subjects and the biology of disease, alongside specialist biomedical subjects.
Gain wide-ranging experience and develop expertise in the areas that interest you most.
Work at the cutting-edge of biomedical science, using highly specialised equipment and tools.
Build essential practical experience through placements and internships.
If you choose the sandwich option, you’ll spend your third year working with an employer or at another university, in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, research or wider sector. This could be in the UK, in Europe or further afield.
You’ll then develop your advanced research skills in the final year, working on a project linked to an area of research we’re renowned for, supported by our research-focused academic team.
With a strong focus on the application of science in the real world, this course is excellent preparation for wide-ranging science careers.
Where can it take me?
Our graduates work in an increasingly diverse range of roles. Most go into biomedical science, working in research and development for organisations in the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors.
The broader transferable skills you’ll develop means you could also go into areas like management, finance or marketing.
