Speak to an advisor

The human body is a complex home to diverse systems each working to maintain the life that we often take for granted. Your natural inquisitive personality and fascination for the science behind clinical practice will help you carve a career in the diagnosis and treatment of disease, and the advancement of modern medicine.  

You will get an in-depth understanding of the complex science behind the cause, consequence, diagnosis and treatment of disease. You’ll learn how science can be applied to clinical practice and research, ultimately to make a difference to human lives through diagnosis and treatment of disease. By putting your lab coat on you will put theory into practice in our brand new laboratories too, getting a sound knowledge of cellular pathology, molecular genetics, the human immune system and biochemical pathways.

We’ll delve deep into blood sciences and the immune system, giving you the opportunity to also expand your knowledge in the fields such as clinical biochemistry researching clinical markers, screening techniques and diagnostic approaches.
