Key contributors to modern healthcare, biomedical scientists play a vital role in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease, monitoring treatments and developing advanced diagnostic tools or novel therapeutic strategies.
Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), which is required for practice within the National Health Service (NHS), this broad-based Biomedical Science degree integrates a wide range of subjects to promote the understanding of how the human body works and the biology of disease. You will also have the opportunity to develop essential skills and knowledge in laboratory management.
The academic content of both the Biomedical Science and Applied Biomedical Science BSc degrees is the same. All students are initially enrolled onto the IBMS accredited Biomedical Science degree. However if you complete a one year placement* in an approved laboratory between years 2 and 3 you will transfer to Applied Biomedical Science. On the Applied Biomedical Science degree you will have the opportunity to complete all the necessary requirements for registration during your course and will be eligible to apply for HCPC registration as soon as you graduate and hence will be eligible to immediately apply for Biomedical Science posts.
Our state-of-the-art Alison Gingell Building features a suite of analytical and biological laboratories where you can gain hands-on experience in cutting-edge industry techniques.
