Bioscience or Biomedical science (I really need an advice)Watch
This is my previous post: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2976311
After some thinking, I decided to leave sports for hobbies and study something else, which I enjoy.
While searching for information, I found out that there is also Bioscience degree. I feel like I would enjoy studying both, Bioscience and Biomedical science, but I just can't decide...
So now I am down to two options, however I am still really confused about which one to choose and the deadline is getting closer
Can someone explain the differences between these two degrees? Any pros/cons? Any experience?
Any information would be helpful
If you haven’t already found it, then university connect is a really useful way for finding people at your course/university! You can also find a list of applicant threads and courses here.
Here's a list of what I've applied for in case you want to look at what I'm talking about with module similarities between different courses that are titled the same:
Oxford Brookes - Biomedical science
Reading - Biological sciences with industrial experience
Royal Holloway - Medical biochemistry
Southampton - Biomedical sciences
Surrey - Biological sciences
So, if you feel you have an interest in biosciences but are not sure which board area to go into, don't feel that you have to be certain about your decision when applying. There will be opportunities to change at a lot of universities.
Biomedical sciences is essentially medicine without the clinical years. You learn human biology, in short. I haven't looked at biomed too much, so that's research you'll need to carry out yourself.
Honestly, if you want to study biology-related science, but aren't too sure about where to specialise, I would go into Biological sciences/bioscience. The general first year often allows you to find out where your interests lie, and then depending on uni, you can begin to specialise in the second and third years.
After lots of thinking, I decided that my first choices should be broader biology. So, I chose bioscience, biological sciences, human biology Since I had to have more choices I also applied for biomedical science
