The B.S. in Biomedical Science (Hons)  at University of Huddersfield offers students the ability to practise the skills relevant to working in a clinical laboratory.


About the course

The Biomedical Science (Hons) course at University of Huddersfield will explore key subject areas such as blood science, anatomy, physiology and pathology, preparing you for a range of careers in healthcare including diagnostics and clinical research. By delivering a curriculum that is relevant to the needs of society, this degree will also provide opportunities for employment in other areas such as teaching, government agencies, pharmaceutical and biotech-industries.

  • In the early stages of the degree, you’ll study alongside our other biological science students, building up your knowledge in the core subject areas of medical pharmacology, microbiology and biochemistry.
  • In final year you'll explore some of the latest developments in biomedical science, guided by expert staff with doctoral-level expertise in a range of subjects.
  • You'll study the prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of numerous chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes and heart disease. You'll also have the opportunity to explore the science of drug addiction and mental disorders such as epilepsy.
  • You'll have the chance to use your creativity and technical skills, working as part of a team to solve problems in biology.
  • In your third year, you have the option to step out of the classroom and into the real world on an optional work experience year working in a research lab or industrial placement. This is when you’ll really be able to see your knowledge in action, pick up valuable skills for your future career and boost your employability to help you hit the ground running after graduation.


Graduates from our Biological Sciences courses can consider a wide range of career options in areas such as medical research, the NHS, molecular sciences, medical genetics, pharmaceuticals, developing scientific patents, medical sales or marketing, medical writing and teaching.

This is a new course and therefore there are no graduates as yet. However, previous graduates from other Biological Sciences courses at Huddersfield have gone on to work in roles such as Clinical Bioinformatician at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Laboratory Technician at ALS, Microbiology Medical Laboratory Technician at IDEXX Laboratories and Nuclear Medicine Sales Executive at Bartec Technologies.
