The BSc Biomedical Sciences degree allows you to explore the progression and treatment of human diseases through the study of how cells, organs and systems function in the human body. Throughout the degree a particular focus is placed on age-related diseases. You will also explore the different treatments methods and lifestyle considerations used to aid healthy living and aging.
