University of Plymouth

With constant developments across all disciplines, biomedical science is a fast-paced, ever-evolving field. Looking for a programme that will help you deepen your theoretical knowledge, hone your clinical skills and broaden your professional experience? We give you a suite of award pathways that allow you to explore different research areas, develop your specialisms and focus your study into a practical clinical research project.

This programme offers the opportunity to specialise in either Cancer Biology or Infection and Immunity, through our dedicated, research-led, biomedical pathways. Both pathways incorporate three core modules covering molecular genetics and proteomics, project design and development, and a research dissertation project. Your chosen pathway will also include two dedicated discipline-specific modules focusing on their specialist theme: Cancer Biology and Therapeutics or Infection and Immunity. You will also contribute to designing and executing a research project with the support of your project supervisor from one of our Biomedical Research groups. Core modules run across both semesters one and two, while one of the two dedicated pathway modules runs in each semester. All modules are assessed through coursework, utilising a variety of written, presentational and practical elements, including a written project dissertation. This enables you to gain broad, transferable skills and experience.
