Life Sciences BSc - new course is specifically tailored to meet the demands of employers


Brunel’s department of Life Sciences is launching an exciting new course in September 2018. Designed with input from existing students, the course also addresses the changing requirements from employers in the field of science by equipping graduates with a full range of interdisciplinary skills.

Students on our new Life Sciences BSc will have the opportunity of combining a range of sciences including Biomedical Sciences, Psychology, as well as Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences. In response to recent employment research from several Research Councils, students will also learn computational and statistical data analysis and quantitative research skills, providing them with the skillsets they need to meet the demands of employers.

Anabel Zeleki, a Biomedical Sciences student at Brunel and a member of the Life Sciences BSc design team says “We wanted to make sure that this course would equip students with the skills that employers need. The government and research councils have found that employers are looking for graduates with an interdisciplinary background, including data analysis and numerical skills.”

Students on the course will also be able to broaden their horizons by choosing an option in a non-science subject. There is a range of options to choose from and students are encouraged in a Career Skills in Life Sciences module to opt for a subject to complement and enhance their career direction.

Graduates from this course will be equipped to pursue careers in life science industries, clinical genetics laboratories; clinical trials and the regulatory sector; sales and marketing related to healthcare and diagnostic products; research laboratories and many more.

You can attend our Open Day on 24 June to find out all about the course and meet the lecturers, book your place today.

Applications can be made via UCAS from September 2017.
