School of Science, University of Greenwich, London/ United Kingdom

B.Sc. Biomedical Sciences

The first year of this programme is intended to be a foundation for the more advanced studies in subsequent years. Approximately one quarter of the programme is taken up with practical-based courses that build students' skills in this area. The second and final years take skills and theoretical development to more advanced levels. In the final year, students also carry out an independent research project that comprises one quarter of final-year study.

Description

This programme will give you a detailed study of human health and disease, focusing on the pathogenesis (mechanism) of disease, diagnostic pathway and therapeutic intervention. It will prepare you for careers in medical diagnostic and research environments.

The first year is a foundation for more advanced studies in subsequent years. Approximately a quarter of the programme is taken up with practical-based courses that will build your skills in this area.

The second and final years take skills and theoretical development to more advanced levels. You can also carry out an independent research project that comprises one quarter of your final-year study. If you want work experience in this field, you can undertake a sandwich year.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To advance your academic, professional and laboratory skills for employment in medical diagnostic and research environments
  • To develop the knowledge and understanding you require to apply theory to practice
  • To develop your transferable skills in information technology, communication, numeracy, problem solving and case study analysis.
