About

As the Biomedical Health (Hons)  course progresses, the emphasis will be on relating the knowledge you have gained to scientific research. You will gain first-hand experience of laboratory research in the later stages of the course, conducting and reporting on substantial scientific investigations in a group and individually. You will also undertake an independent research study into a theme of your choice.

There is the opportunity to apply – on a competitive basis – to be involved in the scientific research being carried out by our human health team. This will give you an ideal preparation for your future career.

Through the research internships, four of our current students have worked with staff to investigate the role of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in the development of oral-pharyngeal carcinomas (head and neck cancers). In partnership with The Swallows, a head and neck cancer support group, they have created an educational film called 'What about me?' to raise awareness of the virus and enlighten people about the implications of not vaccinating boys against HPV.

All of our Biomedical Health teaching team are active human health researchers as well as experienced teachers, so your studies will be informed by latest developments and innovative thinking.

Careers

As a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Health graduate, you’ll be equipped with skills which put you at the forefront of advances in medical health. You’ll be well prepared for careers in medical research, health charities, medical and biotechnology industries and the government health sector. Your knowledge will also be invaluable in areas such as analytical consultancy, biological sales and scientific writing.

In addition, you’ll have a full complement of transferable skills – such as critical thinking, data analysis, report writing and communication – which are valued by Biomedical Health employers and will stand you in good stead in any profession.
