This Biological and Medical Sciences (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool provides a broad-based education in life sciences related to medicine and medical research, and offers great flexibility of module choice so that you can tailor elements of your degree to your own particular interests.

Visit the official programme website for more information


In this Biological and Medical Sciences (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool , you will choose to study from a wide range of content / modules from medically-relevant disciplines including Physiology, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology and Tropical Disease Biology. This programme provides the opportunity to establish a solid Life Sciences foundation in semester 1 upon which you will continue to focus on the “Biomedical disciplines”. There are very few module choices in year 1, so enabling you to experience to flavour of what we offer here at Liverpool. What you study in Year One will determine which options you can take in Years Two and Three. A typical student chooses modules in the first two years that concentrate on physiology, pharmacology and cellular biochemistry. In the third year specific disease areas are covered in much greater detail. You may decide during your C130 degree that you would prefer to focus on one particular degree discipline, rather than continue with the focussed blend of the Biological and Medical Sciences programme. 

Career prospects

As a Life Sciences graduate from the University of Liverpool, you will have an excellent set of career options ahead of you. For those committed to a career as a professional scientist, higher degrees (MBiolSci, MSc, MRes, MPhil or PhD) at the University of Liverpool or elsewhere provide a flexible set of options for further study.

In the public sector, Life Sciences graduates are in demand in research institutes, government departments, the National Health Service, forensic science and the Environment Agency. Commercial sectors that actively recruit graduates from the Life Sciences include the pharmaceutical, food, biotechnology, water and agriculture industries.

There is also an increasing demand for life scientists to contribute to the public understanding of science as journalists and information/liaison officers, in view of the ethical and environmental issues that arise, for example, by developments in molecular biology and biotechnology.

A number of routes are available for graduates to enter the teaching profession one of which is taking a postgraduate qualification (PGCE). There are significant financial inducements provided to meet the current demand for science teachers. In addition to all of the opportunities for graduates in general, including careers outside of biology (such as management, accountancy and human resources), where the skills you have obtained in our degree programmes will be of considerable benefit. Our degree programmes are also popular routes to postgraduate Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science.
