Overview

The Biomedical Science (Hons) programme Keele University will integrate human physiology, biochemistry, pathology, immunology, neuroscience and molecular and cell biology, benefiting from research-led teaching and the input of professionals at the Royal Stoke University Hospital’s Pathology Department. Placement opportunities may include a one year work placement or a summer’s research in the UK or abroad or you could apply for selection onto the Applied Biomedical Science degree, which includes a hospital pathology laboratory placement. Your degree will be accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science and the Royal Society of Biology, assuring you of the quality of the programme as preparation for a career in Pathology.

Careers

96% of Keele graduates were in a job or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE, 2017)
