Year 1 In year one you will carry out a number of compulsory modules to provide you with a good grounding in several important aspects of biology. Since year 1 is common for all undergraduate degrees in the School of Medical Sciences, you will have an opportunity to change to Medical Sciences (B100) or Biomedical Science (B102) before the start of year 2. Modules: Foundation in Molecules and Cells Key Skills in Medical Science Foundation in Clinical Skills Good Laboratory Practice Biomedical Practicals Physiology and Anatomy Introduction to Microbiology Foundation in Therapeutics Year 2 Compulsory modules: Bioscience Skills Molecular Biology & Biochemistry Cell Biology Biochemistry Practicals Haematology & Transfusion Basic Clinical Biochemistry Human Immunology Medical Microbiology Year 3 Compulsory modules: Medical Genetics Drug Development Molecular Causes of Disease Bio Enterprise and Employability Human Immunology & Disease Integrated Research Project The Master in Medical Biology is an extended undergraduate programme which allows students to graduate either with BSc (Hons) at the end of the third year or with a Master at the end of the fourth year. Sufficient standard must be achieved at the end of the second year for progression onto the Masters year following completion of the third year. For the Master degree, the fourth year is dedicated to an individual research project (90 credits), accompanied by one taught module Advanced Research Skills (20).
