Biomedicine

What is Biomedicine?

Biomedicine is theoretical medicine. It is a branch of Medical Science which studies human body from theoretical positions. The results of research in Biomedicine are modern drugs, deeper understanding of the nature of illness, and more advanced knowledge about human body (for example, aging processes).

Biomedicine is sometimes called modern western scientific medicine - in contrast with eastern traditional practices.

The most important branches of Biomedicine are Biotechnology, Biomechanics and Biomaterials. These disciplines can be taught either as a course of basic Biomedicine study program or as a separate degree (Master’s degree in these areas are more popular than Bachelor).

Program structure

The structure of study programs in Biomedicine depends on the chosen specialization, institution and even country. However, some regulations are the same. Usually first years are dedicated to basic courses in Biology and Chemistry, and basic knowledge in Medicine which is similar for all Medicine students. Last courses are usually more specific - during the education students choose the specialization in some areas of Biomedicine (for example, Biomechanics or Biomaterials), undertake courses dedicated to this specialization and work of their research project, which is the most important part of the study program.

Biomedicine study programs can also include internships and a year abroad.

Entry requirements for Biomedicine applicants

Admission for most Biomedicine study programs is highly competitive. Applicants for undergraduate study programs need to have excellent grades in Biology and Chemistry, some universities also require high GPA score in all subjects. Personal achievements and volunteering in the field of Medicine will be a huge advantage for some study programs and a mandatory requirement for other.

Language proficiency is always required - almost all study programs in Biomedicine (which can be found on our website) are taught in English. Of course, you can also choose a university with basic language other from English, for example, French or Spanish.

Those applicants who wish to study in a foreign university need also to meet the specific requirements of  the country they have chosen for the education. They also will need to receive a student visa. Many foreign universities help students with all visa issues; outstanding applicants can also pretend for travel allowance. Requirements for international applicants for some popular countries, for example, USA or UK, can be found on our website.
