During the first term you will meet potential supervisors to familiarise yourself with the research activity within each pathway and to identify an appropriate project. Project titles and areas for research will be identified by module leaders and will relate to the pathway selected. Broadly speaking, your topic should be within the fields of biomedical sciences, healthcare, or health services and use appropriate scientific methods. You will choose your research project and start with laboratory work from mid-October, completing your research by the following August.
Teaching for core modules is concentrated in the autumn term, while teaching for specialist modules takes place over the year. Throughout this time, you will either be attending lectures or laboratory sessions on most days of the week.
Teaching is delivered through a variety of methods, such as lectures, course-specific seminars and small group sessions. You will also participate in self-directed study and wider reading, as well as individual and group practical sessions. The self-directed component of your Biomedical Science - Infection and Immunity course from St George's, University of London includes the in-depth study of an area of interest, developing research and presentation skills, and gaining insight into possible careers.
If you want to pursue a career in biomedical research – whether in academia, industry or government – our course provides a solid foundation which can accelerate your career. On completion, you will be equipped with practical research-based training and skills to plan, conduct, publish and obtain funding for successful research, all vital for career progression.
The depth and quality of the academic research that you will undertake on your nine-month project will provide you with significant research skills and experience, putting you in a good position to apply for a PhD, which many of our students choose to do.
Transferrable skills in critical thinking, communication skills, time management, planning and logistics and data analysis make you well-equipped for a wide range of careers outside the lab, such as medical writing, biomedical marketing, health communication or teaching.
Many St George’s graduates have gone on to work in a variety of exciting and fulfilling careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnical Industries.
