Course summary

Build on your knowledge of biology or chemistry. Gain expertise in fields such as medical microbiology, immunology, haematology, cellular pathology and clinical biochemistry. Work towards one of four possible degree titles.

This unique course allows you to work towards one of four possible degree titles:

Biomedical Science

Studying Biomedical Science will develop your knowledge of scientific investigation into human health and disease, through learning how the human body functions and what happens when disease affects it. You'll develop a thorough understanding of biomedicine and acquire specialist knowledge in medical microbiology, immunology, cellular pathology, haematology and clinical biochemistry.

Applied Biomedical Science

The course content is the same as Biomedical Science, but you'll undertake a 40-week placement in an NHS lab between your second and final year. Placements are subject to availability and an interview with the placement provider is required. The placement allows completion of your IBMS registration portfolio and you'll be eligible to register as a Biomedical Scientist with the HCPC upon graduation.

Biomedical Science (sandwich)

The course content is the same as Biomedical Science, but you'll have the opportunity to undertake a placement year in industry between your second and final year of your degree. Placements are subject to availability and an interview with the placement provider is required.

Healthcare Science (Life Sciences)

Depending on the availability of suitable placements, and subject to interview, you may be able to switch from a degree in Biomedical Science to Healthcare Science, specialising in one of the following areas: Blood Sciences, Cellular Sciences, Genetic Sciences, and Infection Sciences. The course content is the same as Biomedical Science with increasing focus on your specialist area in year three, but includes a series of integrated clinical placements in an approved clinical training laboratory. The placements allow completion of your IBMS registration portfolio and you'll be eligible to register as a Biomedical Scientist with the HCPC upon graduation.

Employment

Your career options will vary according to the path you choose and the title of your final degree. Your experience and skills will also give you an edge in applying for any jobs where a strong science background is an advantage.
