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.

The highlight of my Brunel journey has been the healthcare trip I made to Belgium during my 1st year. It was an opportunity offered by the university where a limited number of students from the Health Department would go to Leuven, Belgium, for 4 days and learn about healthcare and innovations.

Without support from my careers consultant and placement adviser, I would not be where I am today. They really believed in me, even when I didn't.
I would recommend opting for a placement year as it really adds value to your CV.

Flexible and compressed hours enabled me to work more efficiently, engaging more with my students and permitted me the quiet times for writing grants and papers. Such that after 10 years of being a Reader, I have now been promoted in 2020 to Professor.
