  • Academic title
    BSc Biomedical Sciences with a Modern Language
  • Course description
    Biomedical Sciences is a flexible degree programme offering a broad, up-to-date training in the basic biosciences that underlie modern medicine. The degree is taught in the Faculty of Life Sciences which was rated 'excellent' for teaching in a recent subject review and also attained the highest 5* ratings for research excellence.

    The third year of this four year programme is the language placement year, during which students complete a project in a research institution in a country that speaks their chosen language. It is possible to study this programme with French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Japanese or Mandarin.

    Career opportunities
    Biomedical Sciences graduates from the University of Manchester go into a variety of careers. About half stay in the life sciences and related disciplines, choosing either to study further research or taught courses such as a Masters or PhD, which could lead onto a career in bioscience, or medicine/dentistry degrees. A significant number go on to complete a science teaching qualification, such as a secondary science PGCE. Graduates from 'with a modern language' programmes are extremely desirable to employers who require significant relevant work experience. In the growing field of international bioscience research collaborations, graduates with a good command of a foreign language are at a distinct advantage.

    Those that choose a career outside of the life sciences are highly sought after by large multinationals. Graduate programmes in accountancy, finance, law, marketing and publishing are particularly popular choices for graduates from the Faculty who do not wish to stay in science.

    Course fees: For entry in 2008 are £3,145 per annum for home/EU students and £12,900 per annum for international students.
