Our BSc Biomedical Science degree is formally accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). The course will provide you with both general and specialist knowledge in the field of biomedical science, enabling you to understand the fundamental principles of the pathogenesis of disease and strategies for their investigation and treatment.

In your final year of study you will be able to select a module that appeals to your personal interests and allows you to tailor your learning to your own career aspirations.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake a one-year placement within the industry or an accredited NHS training laboratory, allowing you to put the skills you have learned into practise in a real-world environment.

Students who secure a one year NHS sandwich placement will move onto the BSc Applied Biomedical Sciences course, which is accredited by the IBMS and Approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). This allows you to complete the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) Registration Portfolio, which combined with the BSc (Hons) Applied Biomedical Sciences degree will allow you on graduation to be able to apply for state registration as a Biomedical Scientist with the HCPC.

Career opportunities

This course will equip you with all of the skills necessary to have an impact on health, diagnosis and the treatment of disease.

Upon graduation you will be prepared to progress into a wide range of specialist roles, which may include work within the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry or the NHS.
