School of Biomedical Sciences


These are exciting times for biomedical scientists, as we strive to tackle major global challenges, including new diseases, increased drug resistance and an ageing population. King's is at the forefront of current advances in basic and applied sciences, building on a rich legacy of discovery and innovation.

With world-renowned staff, research teams and facilities, we offer a stimulating study environment. Our reputation for medical research is well established; we have six prestigious Medical Research Council (MRC) Centres – more than any other university – and we have gained consistently high ratings in all Research Assessment Exercises to date.

The latest National Student Survey showed that the School's students are very satisified with their experience at King's, with each subject area scoring above the national average. And with a 97% overall satisfaction rating, the School was rated joint first in the areas of Pharmacology, Toxicology and Pharmacy.


We offer eight innovative BSc programmes exploring the systems and mechanisms
underlying human body functioning, normal life processes and the biological and molecular changes that occur in human disease. This knowledge underpins modern medicine and is fundamental to biomedical science.

In addition, our professionally accredited Pharmacy degree combines rigorous scientific study with comprehensive practical skills training.
