We offer a range of bioscience degree programmes all with a focus on human health and disease.  

If you are not sure which area of biology, biomedical or biomolecular sciences will suit you best, we have a Medical Science (Deferred Choice) route. This allows you to select your specialism in the second year of study.

Research-led teaching

Our students are taught by world-leading experts in Biomedical and Biomolecular Sciences, learning about the latest discoveries in the field.  Our core team of teaching-specialist staff ensure that our degrees are of the highest quality and that our students are well supported throughout their degree.

Flexible courses

At the end of your first year students can switch to any of our biomedical and biomolecular suite of degrees.  So if you're not quite sure which is the right course for you, this gives you the flexibility to change after you have learned a bit more about the different bioscience subjects.

Enhance your employability

Students will have the opportunity to spend a year in a professional work placement or studying abroad at one of our partner institutions.  These are great ways to develop new skills and enhance employability.
