– This course gives you the opportunity to do an industrial placement, gaining a head start in your future career.

**About the Course**

This course is ideal if you are interested in laboratory investigation and the monitoring of diseases. It will introduce you to biological and chemical principles, to molecular and cell biology, physiology, anatomy, biochemistry, and relevant laboratory techniques.

You’ll study specialised aspects of biomedical science, particularly the nature and effects of human disease. You’ll examine microbiology, immunology and the cellular pathological changes in conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Theoretical and practical modules cover clinical chemistry and haematology, clinical immunology and medical microbiology.

In your final year you’ll also independently research a subject that interests you. This might include a laboratory-based project, data analysis of survey information or systematic review of scientific literature.
