This course is based on the study of the biology of disease. Your first year is common to all bioscience students at UEL and covers four areas: essential chemistry, cell biology, biochemistry and human anatomy and physiology.
In your second year, your five core subjects will be supplemented by optional work placements. You can choose a short placement or a full year away from the University. Taking a longer option will undoubtedly help your career prospects once you graduate.
In your final year, you’ll gain an understanding of what causes disease as well as studying clinical infection and immunity. You’ll do a core module in cellular pathology and blood science that will show you how to identify normal and pathological tissues using a microscope.
You’ll also undertake your own original research project in your final year, for which you’ll be generating and assessing data. You can do this through library work or in a laboratory. The choice is yours.
