Biochemistry with Biomedicine (Placement Year)

Lancaster University

UCAS Course code BC80


Our Biochemistry with Biomedicine degree is for students with a broad interest in the biochemical processes of life and how these are altered by disease and who wish to gain additional work experience as part of their degree. We have extensive links with local hospitals, both in research activities and in the teaching on our biomedical-based courses. This programme provides you with support to secure a paid placement enabling you to experience twelve months working in the type of organisation that you might aspire to join when you graduate. The placement offers you the opportunity to work as a full time employee of the organisation with the same training and opportunities as other employees whilst still receiving both academic and pastoral support from the University.

Your degree begins with a range of modules designed to provide you with a broad overview of both subject disciplines and includes Molecules of Life, Biomedicine and Society, Organic Chemistry, and Anatomy and Tissue Structure. In additional, you will take a Placement Preparation module.

In your second year, you’ll move on to a range of biochemical and biomedical subjects, with several modules designed to develop key laboratory skills required by scientists in these areas. These modules include Medical Microbiology, Biochemistry, and Genetics. You will also take part in a ‘work-based learning’ module designed to provide guidance and support as you apply for nationally advertised placements and help you gain the most from your placement year.

You will spend your third year on an industrial placement, which may be science or non-science.
You can tailor your degree in your final year to match your interests, selecting from a diverse range of subjects including Tropical Diseases, Protein Biochemistry and Biology of Ageing.

During your degree, you’ll conduct your own laboratory-based project where you’ll benefit from the research experience of our internationally renowned academic staff.
