Course summary

Biomedical scientists carry out laboratory tests on specimens sent for analysis by GPs and other healthcare professionals.

Biomedical Science is vital for the clinical diagnosis of disease and accurate treatment of patients and the operation of the NHS and other health-related industries.

We offer the only Biomedical Science programme with placement in Glasgow that is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

You will gain the knowledge and skills needed to become a biomedical scientist, including cellular pathology, clinical biochemistry, haematology, and clinical microbiology. A key strength of the programme is a work-based placement in a Scottish hospital by selection. International students are not eligible for consideration for placement.

Assessment methods

We use a wide range of learning and teaching methods to ensure that you have both the necessary knowledge and understanding of business and management and a portfolio of intellectual and personal skills.

Each module on the programme uses its own learning, teaching and assessment strategy to achieve learning objectives. Assessment methods vary between modules and may include unseen examinations, class tests, essays, management reports, case studies, presentations, and group work.

Teaching methods

The learning and teaching methods we use ensure that our programme is both vocationally relevant and academically challenging. Our approach is student-centred, practical, participative and relevant to the needs of employers.

We've moved away from the traditional teacher-centric learning to a more independent learning approach, where you are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills.
