Overview

Biomedical science transforms our understanding of health and disease. This Biomedical Science (Hons)  BSc at London Metropolitan University  will put you at the cutting edge of science as you study everything from healthcare issues to research-based science, learning how disease is caused, identified and treated.

The subjects covered during the Biomedical Science (Hons) BSc at London Metropolitan University are similar to the pre-clinical components of a medical degree, with topics including the structure and function of biological fluids, cells and tissues, and the relationship between bodily systems and health, disease and the environment.

Your study programme is designed so that core modules are delivered over two whole days per week, enabling you to juggle lectures with study and other responsibilities. Your first year will include an introduction to the key principles of biomedical science and place a heavy focus on developing the necessary laboratory skills and data manipulations. In Year 2, you’ll look at core discipline areas such as blood science, infection and tissue science. You’ll also get plenty of hands-on experience in a wide range of research techniques, such as spectrophotometry, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), electrophoresis and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

Where this course can take you

Many graduates go on to careers in hospital and private medical laboratories as healthcare assistants, phlebotomists and biomedical scientists. Previous students have found work with companies such as NHS pathology laboratories and The Doctors Laboratory.

Other possible career paths include management, medical research, education and specialised laboratory work. The skills you'll learn are also applicable to public health (water, foodstuffs, disease surveillance etc), veterinary laboratories, blood banks, forensics, and pharmaceuticals development.
