Description

Are you interested in research focused on diseases and cell biology? ARU offers the best combination of theory and practice.

Our Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) accredited course gives you real experience of lab-based research. You’ll learn to diagnose diseases and identify their treatments, preparing you for a career in a range of biomedical fields.

Biomedical science is fascinating. It is all about understanding how the human body works – both healthy and diseased. Our course will teach you the techniques and methodologies used to diagnose and monitor diseases, as well as how to identify treatments.

You will cover key biological concepts starting from the molecular and cellular level, and encompassing human anatomy and physiology. Specialist aspects such as medical genetics and microbiology will be a part of your course; we will discuss how research in these field has impacted upon our lives, and its benefits and risks.

Important information
What are the course objectives?

Although many of our graduates pursue a career as a biomedical scientist, a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree is an appropriate qualification with which to begin a career in a variety of different Bioscience-associated and graduate roles. Examples include scientific or laboratory-based jobs in pure research - both in university and industrial laboratories - pharmaceutical manufacturing, and working for the Medical Research Council or other health-related public bodies and charities. Cambridge has become a world-leading centre for biomedical research and commercial activities of the biotechnology industry. You will benefit from proximity to world-renowned institutions based in the city such as the Sanger Institute and the Wellcome Trust laboratories. Alternatively, you could use the transferable skills you have developed in business or further education.

Graduation doesn’t need to be the end of your time with us. If you would like to continue your studies, we offer a range of full-time and part-time postgraduate courses, including MSc Biomedical Science and MSc Biotechnology, as well as PhDs in Biomedical Science, which will offer you the opportunity to study your favoured specialist area.

What I would highlight From biomedical science you can move on to move molecuar biology, molecular genetics... Biomedical Science gives you a grounding in all of these different pathways.

What could be improved I cannot describe this course as negative.

Assessment

We use a number of ways to track your learning, and to make sure you are developing the knowledge and skills you need. You will undertake practicals in almost all your modules, developing your practical laboratory skills, and your written, verbal, and numerical skills will be assessed from coursework including essays and lab reports, and poster and oral presentations. There will also be tests and exams, to determine your grasp of the fundamental principles and to develop your problem-solving skills.
