Undergraduate study

The School of Cancer Sciences contributes taught modules to all three years of the Biomedical Science BSc as well as laboratory projects for the final year.

The intercalated Clinical Science BMedSc - Intercalated Degree is open to medical students after their third or fourth year of studies. The course provides teaching in six disciplines of clinical sciences including Cancer, and gives students the opportunity to work on an 8-month laboratory-based research project.

Medicine and Surgery MBChB undergraduates undertake both basic science and clinically related cancer courses as part of their medical degree. 


Further information on all of these degrees is provided in the Undergraduate Prospectus entries listed below:
