You learn about the onset, progression, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and are taught by research-active academic experts and practising Biomedical Scientists from our local hospitals. Our BSc Biomedical Science course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences (IBMS) and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). You’ll be equipped with skills that allow you to follow a professional career or to continue for further academic qualifications, such as Masters or PhD.
If you graduate having undertaken a placement year with the NHS, which we arrange for you, in one of the hospitals in our consortium you may register as an independent Biomedical Scientist and gain employment as a designated Biomedical Scientist. Alternatively, you may take a placement year in industry or spend a year abroad.
Our curriculum is constantly evolving to reflect the latest findings and their applications in biomedical sciences and biotechnology, from cancer to synthetic biology.
