What causes specific illnesses? Of what influence are certain risk factors in cardiovascualar disease? What does the body do to fight viral infections? What molecular or physiological mechanisms are involved in the development or retreat of cancer? What are the methods for diagnosing and analysing genetic defects, and how can these methods be improved? Is stem cell therapy our future? How is biomedical knowledge best translated to actual treatment of patients?

These are just some questions pertinent to Biomedical Sciences. In order to answer them, the Biomedical Sciences programme will help you gain a thorough understanding of human health and disease.

Key benefits

- Research conducted at LUMC scores very high in European and world rankings;

- Choice of specialisations in Research, Management, Science Communication and Education. Students who wish to look beyond hard core research are thus taught to bridge science to business, or to society in general;

- The flexibility of our two-year programme allows you to follow your individual interests in the order that suits you most;

According to the National Centre for Languages, demand for translators “is being driven by globalisation, migration and political changes … giving rise to difficulties securing the services of appropriately qualified translators”, and employers particularly expect translators to possess contextual, cultural and ethical knowledge and understanding of their field.

Our new translation courses has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to gain an insight into the needs of a professional translator in a globalised world where businesses, institutions and governmental organisations require more translation work. Our two courses, “Audiovisual and Literary Translation” and “Business and Legal Translation”, cover fields of translation that are particularly in demand, opening up increased career opportunities and providing students with the competencies and skills to maximise their employability.

We work closely with the Institute of Linguists and are the only programme in London which offers specialised business or law modules alongside their translation modules. During the course students will gain valuable insights from professionals and academics in relevant areas and will have access to specialist facilities and equipment (labs and relevant software, such as SDL Trados and WinCAPS).

Students will have the opportunity to participate in an Erasmus exchange after they have completed taught modules at Middlesex, and research and write up their dissertation in the translation departments of prestigious partner universities in Alicante, Geneva, Heidelberg, Innsbruck, Leipzig, Paris, Vienna or Warsaw.
