About the Department

Our Medical Biosciences courses are taught within Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine. Scientists within the Faculty include the inventor of the world’s first ‘intelligent’ surgical knife, which can detect cancerous tissue with 100% accuracy, as well as experts at the forefront of HIV and malaria vaccine development, gene therapy, stem cell research and pandemic modelling.

Our courses draw on this cross-Faculty expertise and innovation to create a biomedical curriculum that is designed for the 21st century.

All students receive an iPad to engage with a blended syllabus of online and in-classroom learning. The courses also include a high level of laboratory work, integrating theory and practice to equip you with work relevant practical and transferable skills that are highly valued by employers.


Three-year course (180 ECTS):

Four-year course (240 ECTS):

You should apply to only one course from above and there is no benefit in applying for both. It is possible to transfer from one of the courses above to the other, up to Easter of your third-year.

If you are an international student, transferring to a different course could have an impact on your Tier 4 visa. Please visit our International Student Support webpage for further information.
