Overview

You'll learn how to use research to ask and answer key questions about human diseases, and how to identify and monitor diseases in the lab using leading diagnostic techniques.

When you graduate Biomedical Science with Human Biosciences (Dual Degree) (Hons) at University of Portsmouth , you'll be ready to pursue a career in hospital-based biomedical science (after further work-based training), or to take on another related career path, such as biomedical research or contributing to clinical trials to find new medical treatments.

Study in Portsmouth and spend a year studying overseas at Edith Cowan University (ECU) in Perth, Australia, gaining two degrees - BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science with Human Biosciences and Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Bioscience). Your global outlook will help you make an impact in the world of biomedical science, disease awareness, detection and prevention.

Course Highlights

  • Explore the causes, diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions, and get an in-depth understanding of the scientific methods used to investigate human health and disease
  • Study the main pathology specialisms, including molecular biology, haematology, microbiology, histology, clinical biochemistry, immunology and blood transfusion
  • Broaden your horizons and complement your learning in Portsmouth with a year spent studying biomedical science in Australia, developing your understanding of forensic genetics, development and ageing with an expert team
  • Learn how to diagnose and research diseases in our labs and simulation facilities, kitted out with industry-leading microscopes, spectroscopy and chromatography equipment
  • Get involved with internationally recognised biomedical research into fields like microbiology, neuro-oncology and precision medicine
  • Be taught by an expert team with over 40 years' experience teaching biomedical science, including many HCPC-registered Biomedical Scientists
  • Understand the value a scientific education gives a global society, and examine the ethics of biomedical research

Careers and Opportunities

Biomedical science is crucial to public health the world over - it's how most patients' conditions are identified and how we can keep improving the effectiveness of the treatments that fight them. Here in the UK, over 70% of NHS diagnoses are based on lab findings by biomedical scientists.

With the two degrees and international scientific study experience you'll earn on this BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science with Human Biosciences dual degree, you'll complete the course as a globally-competitive graduate ready to contribute to this vital field.

Once you graduate, you'll be able to take further training to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and work as a Biomedical Scientist in the NHS, or in private or international settings. You could also apply for work or postgraduate study in Australia using your links at Edith Cowan University. 

Possible postgraduate study options include a Master's in Medical Biotechnology or Biomedical Engineering. You could also choose to become a researcher, or work in clinical trials, medical sales or biotechnology.

During your second year at Portsmouth, you'll have the chance to attend our Biomedical Science and Pharmacology Careers Conference, where you can hear directly from Biomedical Science graduates about their career pathways and what their roles involve. At previous conferences, graduate careers represented include biomedical science, clinical trials, medical sales, biomedical research, teaching, Physician Associates and medicine.
