Students studying Biomedical Sciences develop many skills in academic research and scientific enquiry that are essential for many graduate level careers and for further study. Alongside a depth of knowledge in Biomedical Sciences, graduates will have developed a breadth of skills and experience, including critical analysis, interpersonal skills, communication and computer literacy. A large proportion of Biomedical Sciences graduates choose further study before entering successful academic or industry-based research careers or health-care related professions. Graduates with degrees in Biomedical Sciences enter employment that requires an understanding of biomedical processes and the ability to research the background relating to novel questions using the scientific literature and other data sources. These careers include laboratory research, disease diagnosis, the pharmaceutical industry and scientific publishing. The skills and knowledge gained during a Biomedical Sciences degree equip graduates for employment in the non-science sector, including teaching, marketing, accountancy and policy research.
