Real-world learning and assessment

If you’re looking for an immersive and pioneering scientific learning experience, studying on one of our award-winning biomedical sciences degrees is the right choice for you.

You’ll benefit from a biomedical sciences learning experience that reduces the burden of assessments, refines your skills in evaluation and communication, and teaches you to make use of complex information in a fast-moving field.

By combining your gained knowledge from a variety of modules, your end of year assessment will ask you to put all of your learning into one as you tackle a real-life problem using information you’ve acquired throughout the year.

Our biomedical sciences team has won an award for Teaching Excellence from the Higher Education Academy in recognition of our innovative, personalised approach to teaching and learning.

Your lecturers are active researchers who have published in high-quality review and textbooks in areas such as treatments for 21st century diseases, personalised medicine, cancer and genomic treatments and ageing diseases. So, you’ll gain from learning about their research on your degree and be stimulated to perhaps develop scientific breakthroughs of your own.

You’ll benefit from years of first-hand experience and real-world laboratory research that prepares you for an exciting future career in biomedical sciences.

Dhruti,
The whole process of gaining a placement was an interesting journey which I enjoyed even though it was a struggle at times. The application process was something very new to me and getting through all the different stages was something I learnt a lot from.

Fahreen,
During my degree I’ve learned about the development of cancer down to the cellular level, and increased my knowledge on all the different proteins and stages involved from mutation to cancer formation, invasion and progression. I’ve found it fascinating.
