Educational Aims: Knowledge, Understanding and Skills

back to top
    • To provide a structured, progressive and thematic training in areas of Biological Sciences allied to Medicine which will provide students with a knowledge and understanding appropriate for subject-specific graduate employment. Potential employers include pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries, government agencies and hospitals.
    • To develop key transferable skills to prepare students for more general graduate employment.
    • To develop the intellectual and practical skills necessary for progression to postgraduate research and training.
    • To encourage academic curiosity which will prepare students for lifelong learning
    • To offer a broad range of modules which allow students to specialise in particular areas of Biomedicine and Biological Sciences within which students can select a specialised route
    • To offer all students the opportunity to conduct a substantial research project
