Overview

A Medical Science degree will teach you about life, death, health and disease. Underpinning the practice of medicine, it delves deeply into the body’s functions, including reactions to disease, drugs and the role of genetics. Incorporating facets of numerous scientific disciplines, you will graduate with an extensive understanding of the human body. The degree provides the basis for a career in biomedical research and is also an appropriate first degree if you are planning to move on to graduate medical or paramedical degrees.
