O melhor curso na melhor universidade para você

This course, which is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), gives you a thorough grounding in the theory and practice used by Biomedical Scientists to diagnose and treat diseases, but also prepares you for a career in a wide range of biomedical fields. On this course youâ??ll learn about the human body at the molecular, cellular, organ and systems levels in health and disease. Biomedical science is an exciting and dynamic subject where up-to-date research is constantly leading to breakthroughs and medical advances that have an impact on the health and well-being of society. Youâ??ll be taught by highly-qualified lecturers who carry out their own research in areas including cancer, diabetes, antibiotic resistance and haemostasis, among others. Our teaching is therefore research-led by our lecturers who are passionate about their subjects. On this degree youâ??ll learn key biological concepts that are fundamental to understanding, investigating and treating human disease. Youâ??ll begin by studying general biology, human anatomy and physiology, microbiology and cellular and molecular biology, which will give you a solid foundation of knowledge on which to build. Youâ??ll go on to develop an understanding of the diagnostic techniques used in modern professional practice and learn about the biomedical disciplines, which include haematology and transfusion science, clinical biochemistry, cellular pathology, medical genetics, medical microbiology and clinical immunology. In your final year youâ??ll integrate and deepen your knowledge as you learn about human pathology and current advances in biomedical research, as you become an independent learner. Also in your final year, with individual support from a supervisor, you will have the opportunity to carry out a research project of your own which may be laboratory- or literature-based research. As a student youâ??ll learn in lots of different ways, including in lectures, small groups and laboratory sessions. In lectures youâ??ll be taught key concepts and the latest research findings; in small groups youâ??ll work on case studies and scientific problems to develop analytical skills. In the lab youâ??ll get plenty of opportunities to gain hands-on practical lab skills. Youâ??ll also be developing your team-work skills by working in small groups. We are always developing innovative and interactive ways to teach. Our lecturers and other support staff are enthusiastic and knowledgeable and work hard to create a supportive learning community for all our students. The state-of-the art facilities in our new Science Centre include specialist tissue culture and microbiology laboratories, as well as general teaching and research labs. We have a wide range of specialist laboratory equipment which you will use in practicals and your projects. We maintain strong links to a number of hospitals within the NHS, and related industries within the East of England. You have the option of a placement year between your second and third year. Biomedical Science is a multidisciplinary subject and youâ??ll develop a broad range of transferable skills, which are valued highly by graduate employers. These include written and oral presentation skills, numeracy and IT skills, intellectual, critical and analytical skills, as well as experimental and practical laboratory skills. During the degree you will have a number of tutorials about employability aimed at helping you to understand and succeed in the graduate job market. Towards the end of your degree we invite external speakers to come and talk to you about the range of career options open to you.
