With separate pre-clinical and clinical courses, students first gain a comprehensive grounding in medical science, before applying that scientific foundation in a clinical setting. Throughout the courses students are encouraged to constantly explore and challenge new scientific thinking and research, and teaching is illustrated throughout by reference to findings in academic research.
Colleges offer individually-tailored tutorial teaching, unrivalled pastoral support, comfortable and affordable accommodation, not to mention diverse culture and sporting opportunities and a vibrant social life. The prospects for students at Oxford are almost limitless, but probably the most exciting one is the chance for you to participate actively in your education and shape the way in which you learn - surrounded by others who are as motivated as you.

Biomedical Science is an exciting and rapidly-moving subject area, highly relevant to major issues facing society today. The University of Oxford is an internationally recognised centre for biomedical research and teaching. It has excellent facilities for biomedical sciences students, which include outstanding libraries and a purpose-built teaching centre that houses computing and laboratory facilities.
Biochemistry as the name suggests, combines biology and chemistry by applying chemical techniques to biological problems. What sets biochemists apart from other biological scientists is that we use molecular methods to investigate, explain and manipulate biological processes, instead of studying the integrated function of organs, organisms and ecosystems. This provides the foundations of a number of other scientific disciplines, like pathology, pharmacology, physiology, genetics, zoology, botany and even surgery and anatomy.
