Biomedical Science is an exciting, interdisciplinary subject exploring the normal functioning of the human body at the molecular, cellular and whole organism levels and how understanding these processes enables breakthroughs in the treatment of human disease and improvements to health.
Placing significant emphasis on laboratory techniques and scientific communication from writing labs reports, critical evaluation of scientific data and solving research problems, this biomedical science course provides essential skills required for a wide range of scientific careers.
What you will study
The Biomedical Science course is an ideal choice if you are interested in the scientific basis of how the human body normally functions, how pathological changes can result in disease and how these diseases can be treated.
You will develop laboratory skills in biomedical science, alongside learning to critically evaluate scientific information to communicate this information to a range of different audiences.
Year One: Biomedical Science Degree
The first year of this Biomedical Science degree will introduce you to genetics, microbiology, physiology, development, and biochemistry and cell biology, and will build a foundation of scientific inquiry.
- Biological research skills
- Human anatomy and physiology
- Molecule, membranes and cells
- Introduction to genetics and evolution
- Microorganisms and the dynamic cell
- Human growth and development
Year Two: Biomedical Science Degree
You will develop your knowledge with more focused modules in the second year, such as medical microbiology, applied physiology, and human molecular genetics.
- Case-based learning
- Frontiers in Biology
- Medical microbiology
- Human molecular genetics
- Cellular pathology and disease processes
Year Three: Biomedical Science Degree
The final year is your chance to gain specialist knowledge. You will be able to choose modules that takes your education in a specialised path of biomedical or anthropological emphasis, and will complete a capstone research project in an area of your choice.
- Research project
- Clinical biochemistry and pharmacology
- Clinical and molecular immunology
With biomedical option:
- Global challenges in infectious disease
- Epidemiology and public health
Or anthropology option:
- Humans and other primates
- Human variation and forensic anthropology
You will learn through lectures, tutorials and practical classes. You will typically spend 15 – 20 hours in scheduled classes per week and are expected to spend the same amount of time doing background reading and working on assignments.
There is strong emphasis on applied, practical learning and all students undertake an extensive project in their final year. A wide range of projects is available, from microbiology, applied physiology and genetics and cellular pathology.
Assessment methods vary by module and include coursework such as laboratory reports, essays, oral presentations, problem solving and in-class or online tests as well as written examinations.
