You'll study foundation courses in human biology, cell biology, genetics, animals, chemistry and statistics, along with microbiology and immunology.
Second year will broaden your knowledge of microbiology, biochemistry and genetics. You’ll also start your biomedical training by studying molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology and developmental cell biology.
You'll study medical microbiology, cellular communication, statistics and epidemiology, bioinformatics and immunology.
During your final year, you will master techniques such as gene transfer, microarrays and real-time DNA analysis. You’ll learn how to apply these techniques to problems in human and animal health.
This may include detection of pathogens, development of vaccines, breeding, crops (drought and disease resistance) and microbes (fermentation). You will also study the regulatory requirements of biotechnology.
You'll have two opportunities to do short research projects or work experience placements.
Electives are available in anatomy, neuroscience, cardiovascular biology or industrial microbiology, toxicology and chemical safety and applied biochemistry.
