UCL Division of Medicine


Applied Medical Sciences

A Biomedical Sciences degree with a difference

"Fusing Science with Medicine"


This is a biomedical science degree in which graduates develop a deep understanding of the biomedical sciences underpinned by a strong understanding of how the body works, how it goes wrong and therapeutics.

This requires a good knowledge of human physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology as well as a good understanding of the mechanisms of disease and human medicine. 

Thus, our students emerge with a strong understanding of medicine, its language, and the application of scientific discovery to human disease or physiology.
