Course Description

The Biomedical Science MSci is a continuous, integrated four-year programme, aimed at students interested in science and research, providing enhanced experience and skills transferable to employment or further study, and equipping students to apply for PhD courses or research posts in industry. In addition, the generalist research skills gained, in addition to the advanced science, will be advantageous for many non-science careers.

Course Content

The first two years of the course are common for all final awards and contain compulsory modules. In year 3 there is a wide range of specialist taught modules available to both BSc and MSci students.

Anatomy is taught across the first two years of the course will be delivered with comparable breadth to that of the first two years of the Medicine MBBS (5 year) programme, but to less depth. The content will be contextualised to physiology teaching within the BMS curriculum.

The MSci integrates a year of Master’s level study in year 4 and is designed for students who plan to have a career in the research field, or extend their experience of laboratory-based biomedical science.  A highlight of is the extended final year research project, which is designed to help you to develop more advanced practical and research skills that are required for a research career.

Students are able to move between the BSc and MSci programmes at the end of Year 2, depending on academic criteria and capacity.

Entry Requirements

Five subjects which must include English Language and Maths, and either Double Award Science or both Biology and Chemistry.

We do not accept Adult Literacy and Numeracy or Functional Maths instead of GCSEs

Adjusted Criteria 

If you attend a school or college in England from this list (i.e. a non-selective state school with an average A-Level grade of D+ or below, or one that is in the bottom 20% in England for progression to Higher Education) then you may be eligible to receive an adjusted A-Level offer two grades lower than the standard for the course.

For Biomedical Science MSci this will be an A Level offer of BBC.

You will still have to meet all other academic and non-academic entry requirements.

Additional information

Resits

We will consider your application if you are re-sitting your A levels (including AS levels and modular resits) over 3 years. However, you will be required to achieve higher grades. Re-sit applications will be assessed on an individual basis, as offers may be dependent on achieved Biology and Chemistry grades. Any re-sit grades will supersede previous grades.

English language 

GCSE / IGCSE

English Language grade 6 / B or above.

Please note: all components (speaking, listening, reading and writing) must be completed and assessed.
