Course Summary:
**Course Start Date: 17th September 2018** The MBio Biomedical Science degree at Lincoln is designed to lay the foundations of knowledge needed to understand and investigate human disease. It aims to prepare students for careers as biomedical scientists in the NHS or as scientific researchers. This course offers a broad scientific base for the investigation of human diseases. Students study topics such as haematology, clinical biochemistry, cellular pathology and medical microbiology. A multidisciplinary approach incorporates lectures, seminars and laboratory-based work. Students may develop transferable skills in information retrieval, data analysis, problem-solving and critical thinking. There is also an optional overseas field trip available in your third year as part of the optional 'Overseas Field Course' module. This will allow you the opportunity to study and test biological phenomena in their natural environment.
Modules:
The first year introduces the key areas of biomedical science, including cell biology, genetics and disease. Students have the opportunity to develop the research skills that are vital for a practising scientist. In the second year, students study pharmacology, immunology and disease biology and can be introduced to analytical techniques. In the third year, students examine topics such as infection science, haematology and transplantation, in addition to completing an individual research project. In the final year, students participate in an MBio research project. The project provides the opportunity to contribute to high-impact research across a variety of research areas. Final year modules also focus on developing your research skills further with workshops in research techniques. These combine demonstrations with hands-on work in-lab or in-field. Students will also have the opportunity to develop their ability to communicate scientific knowledge effectively, in different contexts, different formats and to different recipients. For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
Assessment Methods:
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.

Lincoln is such a great university. The town is a great mix between the historical old city and a modern, student friendly vibe with plenty of places to eat and drink. Steep Hill has loads of lovely little boutiques and shops for students. There’s a fair few places to go out, not massively hectic but not dead. Everyone I met was incredibly friendly and interesting, and the teachers were passionate and helpful, really pushing me to work hard and further my academic studies.
