Biosciences courses: an overview

Study human diseases, investigating their causes and effect on the normal structure and function of the human body.

Biomedical scientists perform key roles in both the NHS and private healthcare services, using detailed scientific knowledge and excellent laboratory skills to diagnose patients. Applied Biosciences can lead to laboratory based roles in both industry or academia and also a variety of non-laboratory based careers.

We are a vibrant team of teaching and research staff who will interact closely with you during and after your studies. All our degree courses have a strong focus on practical, transferable and multidisciplinary skills. Vocational and varied assessments are embedded in our courses, enabling you to develop into a confident and competent scientist. You will develop your scientific knowledge, enabling you to work in a wide variety of employment areas.
