Course content

Based around a core structure of practical training in cutting-edge molecular biosciences –including CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technologies – the course provides an advanced training in the research and transferable skills that are valued by employers.

An impressive range of optional modules in diverse areas of biomedicine – infection, cancer, reproductive technology, neuroscience, ageing, bioinformatics, drug development and biotechnology – allow you to develop your own specific biomedical interests. An extended research project in the summer months allows advanced, independent investigation in an area that relates to your programme of study.

Biomedicine is a particular research strength at the University of Kent, and the curriculum has been designed by world-leading experts within their fields. Connections with the clinical community ensure that you have access to the interface between biological science and medicine, and a true insight into how biomedical research improves patient care and changes lives.

The programme offers a progression route to PhD level of study for those wishing to pursue a research career, while transferable skills development supports access to careers in clinical trials, public engagement, scientific writing, industrial research, and many other career structures within and outside the laboratory.

As a Biomedicine student you join a vibrant, ambitious and friendly academic community of around 150 postgraduate students, and a School ranked in the top 10 in the UK for research intensity by the Times Higher Education, based on data from the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF).
