Book an Open Day
Clinical Sciences showed me that we are not limited to those half a dozen vocational courses that we sometimes think we are as school children. I was always the exception to the norm; choosing the modules that most people would not, but I loved it. It was opportunities like this that I have Clinical Sciences to thank for. Opportunities that did not only benefit my grades but also set the foundations for my future aspirations. Zainab Garba Sani, BSc (Hons) Clinical Sciences

Sandwich year

A work placement is a chance to try out an industry you think you might be interested in for the future, or to concentrate on something you’re really passionate about for an extended amount of time.

Industrial placements are taken between your second and third year. If you choose to undertake a placement year, this will extend your studies by 12 months.

You can choose any type of activity such as a research-based placement or working with an organisation in a management role for example.

There is an option to complete a combined year of both workplace and study abroad.

Learning and assessment

The learning, teaching and assessment strategies recognise the wide diversity of educational backgrounds with which you may enter the programme and the different exit points of students and graduates.

A variety of teaching and learning opportunities and assessment methods are used to reflect the differences in learning styles between students and to address the various learning outcomes for the programme.

You are expected to demonstrate greater autonomy in your learning as you progress through the programme. Formative assessments are embedded throughout the programme in order for you to gain feedback and monitor your own progress.

Your knowledge and understanding and discipline skills are developed through lectures, laboratory sessions, workshops, tutorials and self-directed learning. Case studies, group work, individual assignments, verbal presentations, problem-based learning and a personal development portfolio will be used to refine your personal, transferable and specialist skills.

Study abroad

This programme offers the option to study abroad, and choosing this will extend your studies by 12 months. This means a BSc degree will become four years and a BSc with Integrated Foundation Year will become five years.

During your year abroad, you’ll live and study in another country. You will have an opportunity to become fully immersed in a different culture, meet new friends, get the chance to travel and explore, as well as develop yourself.

The study abroad option is increasingly valued by employers. Many students boast of their increased confidence, motivation, and positive outlook when they return to clinical sciences. This means many students perform better after their year abroad or have a stronger sense of ambition.

We have partner universities across the globe in Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, East and Southeast Asia, and Latin America.

A unique learning experience

Because many of our partner universities have their own specialisms or distinctive course content, you can experience new perspectives on clinical sciences and learn about diverse subject areas.

Our students have had some truly unique learning experiences:

  • Studying new imaging methods
  • Undertaking a self-directed research project to assess new grafts for vascular bypass
  • Non-Biology related modules such as programming and artificial intelligence
