Undergraduate Biomedical Science Courses - Division of Biomedical Sciences

Jump to courses

The dynamic world of biomedical sciences underpins much of modern healthcare. As illnesses and treatments become more sophisticated, so too does the need for more advanced understanding of the human body and the effects drugs and diseases have on it.

The Division of Biomedical Sciences has a reputation for powerful, research-informed teaching. Our innovative course is taught by scientists who have vast experience in their field of expertise, and are therefore able to provide our students with valuable scientific knowledge and practical skills for use in the future. 

What is biomedical sciences?

Biomedical sciences is made up of several key disciplines, providing a thorough grounding in a range of areas, covering pharmacology, physiology, anatomy, biochemistry, and neuroscience. This includes studying the structure of the human body, the chemical processes in living organisms, and the effect of drugs. The course will also incorporate specialised topics of interest such as structure and function of the brain and spinal cord.
At The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus we offer

the following undergraduate degree programme within biomedical sciences.

How you are taught

From the outset of the biomedical sciences course, you will be encouraged to develop your intellectual and study skills. In addition to lectures, your skills are developed through the use of problem-based workshops, laboratory classes in which you will gather and interpret data and summarise results, essays and dissertations. You will be assessed through a range of methods including examination, laboratory reports, dissertation, coursework, oral presentation, poster presentation and project report.

We also offer you plenty of opportunities for academic involvement beyond the official curriculum, including research seminars, talks by visiting academics and professionals, placement opportunities with
industries and summer research internships within the Division.

Career prospects

Our biomedical sciences degree is purposely designed to maximise your career options, leading to a wide range of eventual specialisations. It will equip you with skills that enable you to undertake hands-on science careers in medical research and research and development in the laboratories of institutions such as universities, public health services and the pharmaceutical industry. There are also a number of hands-off science career paths, such as scientific journalism, medical information officer and patent advisor. You will also develop abilities across a range of sought after skills and competencies applicable in the non-scientific fields. Highly-transferable skills such as analytical thinking and critical reasoning will allow you to thrive in a wide range of work sectors from IT and finance to retail management.
Following are some career options that you may consider after getting a degree in biomedical sciences:
  • Research scientist

  • Biomedical scientist

  • Biotechnologist

  • Clinical scientist

  • Forensic scientist

  • Medical laboratory technologist

  • Microbiologist

  • Toxicologist

  • Dietician

  • Drug developer and medicine researcher
