Imperial College London

Course Introduction

This interdisciplinary course allows you to explore the science underpinning human health and its related fields. You'll also explore the principles and practice of biomedical science, and how they are applied in research, policy and industry.

This exciting new course will open up the potential for you to become one of tomorrow’s leading scientists, by allowing you to develop pure scientific rigour and skills, as well as the analytical ability, professional outlook and interpersonal intelligence required to succeed in a changing world.

It is taught in our Faculty of Medicine, one of the world’s most respected – Imperial currently ranks fourth in the world for clinical, pre'clinical and health in The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018.

Our teaching taps into the cutting'edge research programme being conducted by internationally recognised experts within the Faculty. This gives you access to the very latest developments in the subject field.

Mobile technology is also central to the course, so you will be provided with a tablet computer to allow you to engage with a blended syllabus of online and in'class learning.

Added to this, your final year is spent in the Business School which is triple'accredited by AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. The year is designed to complement your scientific and clinical skills with business acumen.

The first two years cover topics in fundamental human biology and the molecular basis of human disease.

You also complete an extensive laboratory programme in our bespoke Lab Pod, which is designed to integrate theory and practice. This enables you to work on real life research questions in a learning environment that mirrors an authentic research laboratory.

In your third year you can choose from a range of specialist modules, each of which examines a global health problem, and you will also complete a final'year project. This can be an intensive research project, a placement, or a dissertation on a biomedical science'related topic. Placement possibilities may include industry, hospitals, publishing houses, museums, charities and government agencies.

The fourth year is spent in Imperial College Business School. This covers a challenging programme that's aimed at equipping you with the skills and tools required to innovatively address management issues faced by modern healthcare systems.

You are normally able to transfer between our two Medical Biosciences courses up to the Easter of your third year. There is no benefit in applying to more than one Medical Biosciences course so you should only apply for one course.
