About the course
BSc Biomedical Sciences courses accredited by the Royal Society of Biology
The modern biomedical scientist needs to be familiar with a wide range of subject discipline's. Brunel's Biomedical Sciences degrees provide students with a sound grounding in all the key subject areas.
Students will be encouraged to exercise leadership, initiative and responsibility, and to appreciate the need for continual professional development.
The Society of Biology has awarded its accreditation to Brunel's BSc Biomedical Sciences programmes. This award is great news for current students as it proves to employers that Brunel graduates have the subject knowledge and technical skills they are seeking.
The aim of the BSc Biomedical Sciences programme is to provide students with an understanding of the main subject areas in biosciences and medically related research. The pathways include biochemistry, genetics, human health and immunology and are designed to explore health and disease. There are compulsory study blocks taken for each of the pathways at year 2 and 3, allowing specialisation in that area of Biomedical Science.
In contrast, the straight Biomedical science degree (no pathway) allows students to tailor their degree to their own interests giving them opportunities to select any of the option study blocks they wish. Thus the programme seeks to develop within graduates good practical, analytical and transferable skills applicable to a wide range of employment opportunities, including medicine, MSc and PhD, pharmaceutical research, pathology and diagnosis, clinical trials and data management. Students will be encouraged to exercise independence, initiative and responsibility and appreciate the need for continual professional development.
