Overview

Key facts

Lancaster University's Biomedicine - Placement Year (Hons) degree offers more flexibility than our IBMS-accredited BSc Biomedical Science by allowing you to tailor your degree to your personal and professional interests within the field of biomedicine.

You will study biochemistry, cell biology, genetics and physiology - which are at the heart of modern medical and health research. These subjects are taught with a particular emphasis on the molecules and mechanisms fundamental to life processes and how these are disrupted by disease.

The degree provides you with support to secure a paid placement for twelve months working in the type of organisation that you might aspire to join when you graduate. A placement offers you the opportunity to work as a full time employee of the organisation with the same training and opportunities as other employees, whilst still receiving both academic and pastoral support from Lancaster University.

In your first year, you will gain a through grounding in the general areas of biomedicine through the study of 15 wide-ranging core modules, including Biomedical Science in Practice, Infection and Immunity, and Protein Biochemistry.

In your second and fourth years, you will study a small number of core modules such as Medical Microbiology and Medical Genetics.
