Biomedical and Biomolecular Sciences

Welcome to Biomedical and Biomolecular Sciences at Newcastle University

Our suite of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science programmes allow our students to study Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry, Biomedical Genetics, Physiological Sciences and Pharmacology, all with a focus on human health and disease.

Our common first year allows students to switch their degree specialism (within the Biomedical and Biomolecular suite of programmes) at the end of their first year.  We also offer a competitive scheme for a small number of students to transfer to the medicine and dentistry programmes at Newcastle at the end of first year.

All of the Biomedical and Biomolecular science degrees are accredited by the Royal Society of Biology and include the option to take a professional placement year or to spend time studying abroad.
