Exploration of how the body works is endlessly fascinating.
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. 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.
