The Medical Science degree allows you to study the function of the human body in health and disease at molecular, cellular and systems levels. You will develop key skills and scientific knowledge to prepare you for further training or employment in a range of healthcare science professions or medical research. The course has also been designed to provide a foundation for graduate-entry medical school. A Medical Science degree from Oxford Brookes will put you at the forefront of health-related fields, including research and development. Our academic staff are engaged in ground-breaking research and, with some of the UK’s best hospitals on our doorstep, you will have excellent work placement and career opportunities.

Modules

Year 1 modules include biology of cells, chemistry of cells, human structure and function, and skills for life scientists. These lay the foundation for the advanced modules in Years 2 and 3. Throughout the course, the emphasis is on the interdisciplinary nature of causes and treatment of disease. You will become aware of the many ways in which scientific knowledge is applied in medicine and other health-related disciplines. You will be able to choose modules to suit your particular interests in the molecular life sciences or physiological sciences. A particular feature of this degree is the option to select a modular pathway that emphasises the physiological principles underpinning medical science at a systems level.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
