Welcome to the Biomedical Science course at Keele! Everyone on the Biomedical Science teaching team is looking forward to seeing you at the beginning of the semester and you will find the University and the School of Life Sciences to be friendly places with plenty of people to help you settle in.
Our students tell us how much they enjoy their studies, with the curriculum being described as detailed, stimulating and challenging with a good choice of modules and excellent laboratory classes and project work. The wide range of teaching methods we use is very well received and our students feel that the programme prepares them well for employment. Students identified the opportunity for industrial (and clinical) placement as being one of the highlights of the programme. All of the opportunities available to you at Keele will help you to reach your full potential and develop knowledge and skills that will help you to progress in your future career.
My colleagues and I look forward to seeing you at the start of the new academic year and – remember, just ask if you’re not sure of something and we’ll be happy to help.
