Biomedical Sciences is a dynamic area of study that is highly relevant to the understanding and treatment of human diseases.
Below you will find information about the specific degree course offered by Oxford University to study Biomedical Sciences, how to prepare, and how Oxbridge Interviews can help you with your application.BOOK COURSE
Cambridge University do not offer a degree in straight Biomedical Sciences. The core sciences degree is Natural Sciences.
Oxford University's Biomedical Sciences course is three years with the option to extend to four years for a Master's degree.
The application process is extremely competitive with only 10% of applications successful. To be offered a place, you generally need to get A*AA at A Level (or equivalent) and you must be studying any two of Biology, Chemistry, Maths or Physics at A-level or equivalent.
To prepare for your Biomedical Sciences application, you must demonstrate your motivation for the subject and specific interests. You can do this by reading beyond your school curriculum. Our interviewers recommend:
- 'The Selfish Gene' by Richard Dawkins
- 'Bad Science' by Ben Goldacre
- ‘The Unnatural Nature of Science’ by Lewis Wolpert
Practice interviews for Biomedical Sciences applications are critical. You wouldn’t sit an exam without doing a mock, so don’t place yourself in an interview without having experienced a practice interview first.
Applicants to Biomedical Sciences at Oxford are required to sit the Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT).Learn more about the BMAT
