Human Bioscience BSc (Hons)

Our Human Bioscience course aims to further develop your understanding of the human body at the tissue, cell and molecular level. You will investigate the consequences that occur, when normal physiological processes go wrong, and explore the underlying mechanisms that underpin important human diseases. Our well-structured programme will provide you with the opportunity to explore a range of topics within this vast and dynamic subject. You will also be able to specialise in your own areas of interest throughout the course.

Our staff are research active and are experts within their specialist disciplines, which include nutrition, immunology, cancer, genetics, neuroscience, pharmacology and microbiology. They are enthusiastic and experienced educators who will help you to explore the range of topics within contemporary human bioscience.

Our graduates are highly valued in the public and private sector, and we have consistently high rates of graduate employment. As a Human Bioscience student, you will develop key transferable skills and knowledge as well as enhance your academic and practical skills, to ensure that you are well-prepared for employment and life beyond your studies. This course will distinguish you from competing graduates when searching for employment, which might be in the bioscience, medical or biotechnology sectors.
