    Course Summary

    The University of Southampton’s Master of Biomedical Sciences (MBioSci) degree program focuses on giving students a complete understanding of the basic mechanisms of all life, with a particular emphasis on the causes that underlie human diseases and health complaints.

    This is a 4 year integrated Masters’ degree program, combining the disciplines of pharmacology, genetics, cell biology, neuroscience, physiology and biochemistry. There will be a strong focus on clinical practice rather than laboratory work. Students will study genetic disease and mutation, organ degeneration and metabolic disorders as well as the molecular bases of different diseases, oncology, neurophysiology, developmental biology and specific diseases like epilepsy.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
