University of Westminster

Course Introduction

Biomedical science is concerned with the detailed study of the human body, in health and disease, with emphasis on the diagnosis and understanding of disease states and the mechanisms involved. This course will prepare you for a career in medical diagnostic, pharmaceutical and research environments. It provides you with a thorough education in the disciplines required to understand and investigate disease, and enables you to develop your career in a variety of pathways in biomedical sciences.

Course Modules

First'year core subjects include human physiology, functional anatomy, cell biology, biochemistry and critical skills for biomedical sciences; you will also be able to choose an option module from subjects such as botany, biological chemistry, pharmacology, nutrition and the application of biological sciences. In Year 2, alongside a module on research methods you will study five core subjects – infection and immunity, medical genetics and genomics, metabolic biochemistry, applied pathobiology, and professional practice in biomedical sciences. Your main focus in the final year is your research project, but you will also study core modules covering clinical immunology and immuno'haematology, medical microbiology, diagnostic biochemistry and haematology, and cellular and molecular pathology.
