Course content

This unique BSc draws on world-leading expertise in medicine and business to create medical scientists who are not only familiar with the latest medical innovations (e.g. regenerative medicine, stem cell therapy, imaging and nanomedicine) but also know how to translate these advances into clinical realities through enterprise.

n each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 15 or 30 credits, adding up to a total of 120 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 30-credit module is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

Students can apply for a three-year BSc or a four-year MSci, whereby the fourth year will involve a business consultative work placement and medical research experience.

Based within the Faculty of Medical Sciences, your learning will be informed by world-leading translational research in stem cells, tissue engineering, biomaterials, 3D printing and medical devices.

The degree also draws on expertise within UCL Laws with regard to intellectual property, innovation law and medical regulation.

The UCL School of Management (based in Canary Wharf) provides business and enterprise expertise. Students will learn how to create companies and translate medical technologies into clinical realities. Topics covered will include business start-up, management structures and financial planning.
