This programme fuses science with medicine, enabling graduates to translate scientific advances into clinical practice. Students learn to understand both science and the foundations of medicine, including the mechanisms of disease and how diseases are treated. Graduates will be empowered to work at the highest levels within the biomedical sciences.
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
Year one is demanding, covering the foundations of human biology and medicine. The core modules provide an understanding as to how the body works, what goes wrong in disease and how to treat it. You will be mostly based at UCL’s Royal Free campus in Hampstead, North London, and taught by world-leading scientists and clinicians. The programme is designed not just around individual excellence, but also on all-important team skills. As an example, you will be enrolled into one of four 'houses' which compete for points in various events, both fun and academic, including invention activities.
In year two, you will take five compulsory modules. There are a wide range of optional modules, of which you will select three. This flexibility will enable you to choose your own route within the biomedical sciences: between biomedical entrepreneurship, clinical trials, study of infection, or regenerative medicine and nanotechnology.
Years three and four follow a similar pattern, with modules built around a solid applied medical science core. You can tailor a programme to suit your needs and aspirations, while the core skills will give you the grounding to pursue a career you enjoy. You will also have a one-month professional placement and be engaged on a research project in both years.
