This Biomedical Science course runs in 2016/17.
This course has a September and a January intake.
Biomedical Scientists play a vital role in the diagnosis and prevention of disease and the monitoring of treatment. Biomedical Science degrees are broad based science degrees which aim to integrate a wide range of subjects to promote understanding of the biology of disease.WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?
Upon successful completion, you should have gained the appropriate knowledge and advanced laboratory skills to apply for careers in the biomedical science field, including those relating to the diagnosis and management of human disease, and laboratory careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
If you choose this course you will benefit from:
- Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS);
- Applied Biomedical Science is approved by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC);
- the opportunity to apply for entry into National Health Service (NHS) careers;
- help applying for placements in laboratory settings and in other fields such as teaching;
- academic staff who have hospital laboratory experience and are active in research and bring this into their teaching;
- hands-on experience of a wide range of techniques in modern, well-equipped laboratories which give you the expertise and skills required to compete in the graduate job market;
- a focus on student-centred teaching in which you can take part in mini-projects where you devise and carry out your own laboratory experiments. This will help you to demonstrate to future employers that you can work independently and solve problems;
- guest lecturers who are currently employed as biomedical scientists in hospital laboratories to teach areas such as haematology, virology and clinical biochemistry.
Institute of Biomedical Science
Accreditations and approvals shall be renewed in accordance with the relevant body's standard review process and subject to the University maintaning the same high standards of course delivery.WHAT WILL I LEARN?
You will cover the key foundations of biomedical science including: diagnosis and pathology of disease, molecular biology, genetics, cell biology and microbiology.
Laboratory work is a substantial component of the course, enabling you to learn a wide range of techniques in modern, well-equipped laboratories and help them develop the key experimental, data handling and reporting skills required in biological careers. Considerable focus is also placed on graduate-level skills which are essential when you apply for jobs.HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?
Your course will be based on lectures, with associated laboratory practical classes and workshop activities.
All students are initially admitted to the IBMS accredited Biomedical Science degree. However, students who are successfully selected for a one year placement in a hospital laboratory, between year two and three, can transfer to the HCPC approved Applied Biomedical Science degree.HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?
An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 25%; coursework, tests, essays 45%; practical or project work 20%; group work etc.5%; presentations, posters etc.5%.
A compulsory Add+vantage module must also be completed: please see the page on the Add+vantage scheme for more details.TEACHING CONTACT HOURS
In a typical week you will have up to 18 contact hours of teaching and this will break down as:
Personal tutorial/small group teaching: 6 hours of workshops/online tutorials (or later, individual project supervision) each week. You can also arrange to see staff in their ‘drop in’ sessions for any additional help you may need.
Medium group teaching: 6 hours of practical classes or skills workshops each week
Large group teaching: 6 hours of lectures each week
Personal study: 18 hours each week studying and revising in your own time including some guided study using handouts, online activities, etc."
