    BSc Medical Genetics


Medical Genetics is making an enormous impact in the diagnosis and treatment of human disease. Knowledge obtained from sequencing the human genome is allowing researchers to understand the many diseases that have genetic components. Many medical doctors who become involved in research focus on genetic aspects of human health and disease.


A typical offer is BBB - ABB at A-Level [or equivalent for other qualifications: 300 – 320 UCAS tariff points].

You must have good grades in Chemistry and Biology.

Students studying for BTEC qualifications would require a minimum grade B at A-Level in both Biology and Chemistry plus a Distinction (D) in a relevant BTEC Subsidiary Diploma (6 units).

IB: 32 - 33 (including good HL grades in Chemistry and Biology).

We make individual offers for your circumstances after reading your UCAS personal statements and references.
