    Description

    This programme is designed to give you a good grounding in both the basic science of processing and of the management of new emerging technologies in healthcare. You will develop an understanding of the latest biomedical and diagnostic advances, together with the business skills necessary for health and clinical research management.

    Degree benefits

    • This BSc is a truly interdisciplinary programme which draws on the knowledge of experts from across UCL in science and engineering, management and humanities.
    • The department has the most modern and comprehensive biochemical engineering facilities of any university in the world. Constructed at a cost of £30 million, they attract leading industrial competitors.
    • Our teaching is designed to help you both to work at a detailed analytical level, and to see the bigger picture in terms of addressing environmental and ethical issues.
    • We have been pioneers in providing our undergraduates with training to help them understand the business environment in which life science industries operate, thus better preparing you for your future career.

    In the first year, you will study the basics of how a drug is created, made at scale and what the challenges of creating new medicines are. You will also study the prerequisite management principles in running an organisation and dealing with the accounts, as well as the fundamentals of data management.
    In year two, you will study the internal and external factors that govern pharmaceuticals production, with emphasis on clinical needs and their constraints. A wide spectrum of knowledge is encompassed from statistical analysis to legal and ethical concerns, together with an understanding of the role of the internet in globalisation and access to medicines.

    The third year addresses a more in-depth understanding of global practices, business planning and the feasibility and economics of creating therapeutics and vaccines in both developed as well as developing markets. You will also undertake an independent research project within the context of globalisation of health.

    Your learning

    You will be taught using a combination of lectures, case studies, team-based projects and experiments. Leading industrialists and researchers regularly visit the department to provide guest lectures. Case studies are conducted in small teams, and your personal and departmental tutors are available to offer individual support.

    Assessment

    Written examinations, individual reports, coursework and oral presentations all contribute towards your assessment.

    Career

    Opportunities

    The core science, engineering, business and leadership skills that you acquire on the programme will provide you with excellent and diverse career prospects. In addition to your core subject knowledge, the programme will provide you with skills such as innovative thinking, team working and computing.

    The excitement of advances towards new medicines and greener sustainable processes is creating an ever-growing need for biochemical engineering graduates to work in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, biofuels, chemical, environment and food industries.

    You may be based in a university, or work in company research and development activity involved in the design of facilities and issues of creating safe materials. The programme teaches skills such as systematic thinking and precise calculation, which leads some graduates to enter the financial sector and particularly those companies which invest in healthcare.

    Destinations

    The first cohort of students admitted to the Bioprocessing of New Medicines (Business and Management) BSc programme are due to graduate after 2015. Therefore, no information about career destinations for students on this programme is currently available.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
