About this course

The BSc in Biomedical Science encompasses the study of the science that forms the basis of medicine and related fields, including scientific laboratory-based knowledge and understanding.

This programme will explore the principles and practice of biomedical science and how they are applied in research, industry, and medicine.

As the course progresses you will be able to specialise and tailor the programme to your own individual needs and career aspirations. You will be taught by staff from a range of departments and faculties at Imperial.

In year one you study core modules including Human Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry.

In year two you undertake a further programme of core modules, including:

  • Applied Molecular Biology
  • Epidemiology
  • Pharmacology
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Cancer Biology
  • Immunology
  • Specialist option
  • You also complete a dissertation.

In the final year you are able to tailor the programme to suit your specific interests by selecting one of a range of topics from either the Faculty of Medicine or Faculty of Natural Sciences.

Students on the BSc Biomedical Science with Management programme then undertake an additional year of study within Imperial College Business School.

Course Modules

Teaching for the first two years is based mainly at the South Kensington, Charing Cross and Hammersmith Campuses. All provide excellent purpose-built facilities for biomedical science with the latest technology, teaching laboratories and computer suites, an extensive IT network for supporting computer-assisted learning, and first class library facilities. Teaching in the third year takes advantage of the College’s world-class research facilities.

You follow a core programme in the first and second years. Throughout, there is practical and project work, an emphasis on the development of independent thinking and critical analysis, and the development of transferable skills.

Year 1
The core course covers fundamental topics in biomedical science.

  • Cell Biology: molecular and cell biology, genetics, developmental biology, immunology, virology
  • Biological Chemistry: organic chemistry, structure and function of biopolymers, thermodynamics, enzymology, synthesis, membrane structure and function, metabolism and catabolism
  • Human Biology: anatomy; systems biology (musculoskeletal, nervous, haematology, cardio-pulmonary, renal-hepatic, gastro-intestinal); neuroscience and special senses; endocrinology and metabolism; reproduction, embryology, development and ageing; psychology and behaviour
  • In addition, tutorials in chemistry and statistics are integrated into these courses.

Year 2
Second year courses are outlined below. In addition, you are required to undertake a substantive tutored dissertation, for which time is allocated into the programme of study.

  • Applied Molecular Biology (including Bioinformatics and Genomics)
  • Pharmacology, Epidemiology and Infectious Disease (including Virology, Microbiology and Parasitology)
  • Cancer Biology
  • Immunology
  • Medical Humanities
Year 3
The Libraries of Imperial College London hold over 9,000 books.

You can select one of the following whole-year courses for the final year of your BSc. These are science-based courses with links to an appropriate medical field. The current options are as follows:

  • Cardiovascular Science
  • Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology and Hepatology
  • Global Health
  • Haematology
  • Immunity and Infection
  • Neuroscience and Mental Health
  • Pharmacology
  • Reproductive and Developmental Sciences
  • Respiratory Science
  • Surgery and Anaesthesia
  • Each of the above courses of study in the final year is modular and students are led, via a variety of teaching methods, to the forefront of the field.

It is expected that the majority of students will undertake an independent research project in the latter part of the third year or alternatively a specialist course (available only with the courses in the Faculty of Medicine) in one of the following areas (current options listed):

  • Medical Humanities
  • History of Medicine
  • Death, Autopsy and Law
Year 4
APPLIES TO B9N2 ONLY
Students of Biomedical Sciences with Management undertake an additional fourth year of study within the Imperial College Business School.
