At Ulster University, we recognise that Bio and Healthcare Sciences is one of the largest and most dynamic fields of study in life sciences

We therefore offer a wide range of Bio and Healthcare Science degrees that take a multidisciplinary approach to the study of human health, to give students an in-depth understanding of how the human body functions in both normal and diseased states.

Using innovative teaching methods and technology, our degree programmes deliver stimulating lecture content, direct practical experience and exciting work placement opportunities, all supported by a dedicated team of expert educators. Students receive expert tuition from lecturers who are world-leading researchers in their respective fields.

As part of their degree programmes, students will have the chance to work in our state-of-the-art bioscience research facilities alongside teams of researchers carrying out cutting-edge studies into cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and other disorders. As a result, our students get the ideal opportunity to develop all the academic, professional and personal skillsets that employers value highly in prospective employees.

Students studying Bio and Healthcare Science degrees can progress to work in a range of organisations, including hospital laboratories, the NHS, life science industries, pharmaceutical companies, clinical businesses and many more.
