Biomedical scientists help identify rare diseases, diagnose disease, research disease processes and monitor patients’ treatment. On this accredited BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree, you’ll develop the expertise you need to start making your own contribution to the medical advances of the future.
This course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) – a mandatory requirement if you want to work in the NHS after graduation. It's also accredited by the Royal Society of Biology.
On your degree, you’ll learn to diagnose, monitor and manage health conditions. You’ll learn from our outstanding team of biomedical scientists and researchers whose work is shaping the understanding of conditions such as brain tumours. You’ll put your learning into practice in our lab simulation facilities and use microscopes, spectroscopy and chromatography equipment to hone your skills.
You’ll have the freedom to choose modules and projects that excite you, covering topics such as nutrition, exercise for health, and bioscience and business.
You’ll also have the chance to take a summer research placement in Europe with an internationally-recognised biomedical research organisation, and the option of a sandwich year in the UK or abroad, where you’ll work in a lab or within the NHS to gain valuable professional experience.
After graduation, you can become a registered Biomedical Scientist in the NHS (after 12 months of work-based learning). You’ll also be ready to follow previous graduates into medical training, dental training, teacher training, research and development within pharmaceutical companies, the NHS Scientist Training programme, and publishing.
