Course Description :

BSc Biomedical Sciences with Integrated Foundation Year

Our Integrated Foundation Year for science is a thorough, skills-building course that will give you everything you need to start your study of BSc Biomedical Sciences with confidence. 

Science underpins society and can help us provide answers to fundamental questions. Our Foundation Year sets you up so that you’re ready to take on those questions - providing you with opportunities to gain knowledge and understanding of how to get started in studying the sciences at university, including Biomedical Sciences. 

Once you have completed your Foundation year, you will normally progress onto the full degree course,  BSc Biomedical Sciences. There may also be flexibility to move onto a degree in another department (see end of section, below). 

Biomedical Sciences develops your understanding of the biological basis of human disease and is ideal if you’re considering a career in biomedical research. You’ll learn essential elements of biochemistry, physiology, cell biology, molecular biology and genetics, centred around human function and disease. You can choose a pathway to tailor your degree to your own biomedical interests from a range of options taught by experts in their fields

You’ll develop the skills required to conduct standard laboratory procedures in Biological Sciences, including the safe handling of materials in experimental settings, taking into account their chemical properties, including any specific hazards associated with their use. You will also be able to demonstrate skills in the monitoring, by observation and/or measurement, of a variety of chemical or biological properties, events or changes, of both a quantitative and qualitative nature, together with their systematic and reliable recording and documentation, in the laboratory or the field.

On successful completion, you’ll be equipped with:

  • An understanding of the theory, technology and clinical practice of human molecular genetics and molecular biology techniques
  • An awareness of the applications of genetic engineering approaches to prevent disease
  • The transferable skills needed to work in a wide range of sectors.
