After gaining a solid grounding in the principles of biomedical science, you’ll move on to specialist topics, acquiring the in-depth understanding and advanced techniques vital for professional practice. That means you’ll study a range of areas, from cell and molecular biology, physiological systems and research skills, to blood science, cellular science, and techniques and applications in biomedical science, to name but a few.

In your final year, you’ll get the chance to develop your own particular interests with a major project. With our excellent facilities and close links with local hospitals, by the time you graduate you’ll be ready for the next stage of your career.


Biomedical and healthcare science graduates may go on to a range of subject-specific careers in the biological, pharmaceutical, clinical, medical, public health and other associated industries. Recent graduates have gone on to secure employment in laboratory/research work, the pharmaceutical industry and medical communications.

The (Hons) Biomedical Science degree from Manchester Metropolitan University will also give you with a wide variety of transferable skills that can be applied to non-subject specific career pathways such as in local government, environment agencies, teaching, management and the civil service. For those who wish to continue their studies, we offer a range of postgraduate programmes across the breadth of biomedical and biological sciences.
