    Course Summary

    The University of Suffolk’s Biomedical Science BSc degree program uses a multidisciplinary approach to learning. This science draws on so many different underlying disciplines – toxicology, pharmacology, developmental biology, pathophysiology, physiology, immunology, molecular biology and biochemistry just to start. That means UOS’ approach is vital to giving you a full understanding of the field.

    What you learn will be very practical in nature, giving you the analytical skills you will need in any biomedical science based career. You’ll be employment ready when you graduate, with all the skills and background understanding you’ll need to pursue a career in the NHS, in the private sector medical industry, or as a researcher in a variety of industries, academic specialties or roles.

    The school has a close relationship with Ipswich Hospital, and you’ll learn both at their facilities and those of the UOS. Your course tutors are all active in research, and can help you explore the latest thought in their specialties.

    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.

    Learning & Teaching

    The curriculum of the University of Suffolk’s courses takes advantage of the school’s smaller size to make best use of flexible, creative learning. Traditional models (lectures, seminars, etc.) will be used side by side with Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and fully integrated employability content.

    In addition to optional participation in placements and internships in order to impart real world skills pertaining to your chosen specialty, you’ll be taught widely applicable (and highly transferrable) skills.

    Career Possiblities

    UOS’s degree programs are all designed to make you a highly employable graduate. The curriculum of this program is constantly updated to ensure that you are learning the best practices of the discipline and working with the most advanced equipment. Recent graduates have become researchers for academia or private industry, or taken technical and clinical roles with the NHS.   

    You’ll also have the option of further education at the Masters or PGCE level.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a full BSc degree.

    Students must typically have been awarded 112 UCAS Tariff Points to apply. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.0 overall with no section scoring less than 5.5 would qualify, for example.
