Biomedicine (Study Abroad) BSc Hons
Our BSc Biomedicine (Study Abroad) is for those with a broad interest in human life processes and disease, and who would like to experience studying abroad as part of their degree. Lancaster University is ranked fourth in the UK for biosciences in The Guardian University Guide 2020 and is in the top ten in the UK for biological sciences in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020.
Our biomedicine degrees offer more flexibility than our IBMS-accredited BSc Biomedical Science by allowing you to tailor your degree to your interests within the field of biomedicine.
You will study biochemistry, cell biology, genetics and physiology - which are at the heart of modern medical and health research. These subjects are taught with a particular emphasis on the molecules and mechanisms fundamental to life processes and how these are disrupted by disease.
In your first year, you will gain a through grounding in the general areas of biomedicine through the study of 15 wide-ranging compulsory modules, including Biomedical Science in Practice, Infection and Immunity, and Protein Biochemistry.
You will spend your second year at a university in North America, Canada or Australasia. You will study modules which have been approved by Lancaster University to ensure that you are prepared for the modules you will take when you return to Lancaster University for your final year. Overseas study can broaden your horizon, build your confidence, offer a different perspective on your subject, and can make you stand out from the crowd in a competitive job market.
In your third year, you will study a small number or core modules such as Cancer and Medical Genetics. You will then select your remaining modules from a wide range of options including: Biology of Ageing, Clinical Immunology, and Tropical Diseases.
During your degree, you will conduct your own laboratory-based project and benefit from the research experience of our internationally renowned academics. You will also receive in-depth training in the key techniques associated with modern biomedical practice.
The facilities for studying biomedicine at Lancaster University are excellent. We have invested over £4 million in new life science teaching laboratories, which you will use for practical learning and your dissertation project.
Lancaster University will make reasonable endeavours to place students at an approved overseas partner university that offers appropriate modules which contribute credits to your Lancaster degree. Occasionally places overseas may not be available for all students who want to study abroad or the place at the partner university may be withdrawn if core modules are unavailable. If you are not offered a place to study overseas, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent standard degree scheme and would complete your studies at Lancaster.
