The first two years give you a grounding in the molecular and cellular basis of life. You will carry out human dissection, supervised by a member of staff.
In the third year, we expect you to be more independent. You'll have the opportunity to specialise in areas that interest you, for example medical sciences, molecular physiology, neuroscience, developmental biology and pharmacology. We ask for more critical thinking from you at this level and a better understanding of existing research. You will also complete a research project of your own.
The fourth year focuses on developing your research skills. You'll work on an extended project in a research laboratory. You'll also explore areas such as ethics, the law and the public understanding of science.
If you want to study biomedical science, but don't meet the entry requirements to go straight into the first year, our Biosciences with a Foundation Year could be for you. After successfully completing the one-year programme, you'll progress onto the first year of your chosen degree.
