Course summary

Our BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree can lead to a wide range of exciting careers in biomedical research. You’ll study in our purpose-built Science Centre under the guidance of specialist academics. Our expertise includes clinical biochemistry, medical microbiology, clinical immunology, cellular pathology and molecular diagnostics. A high proportion of your class contact time will be in the laboratory. Towards the end of Year 1, you’ll be able to apply for a competitive place on our Applied Biomedical Science route. Ideal if you are looking to become a registered biomedical scientist with the NHS, this route involves taking a 14-week clinical placement alongside your studies and enables you to complete the Registration portfolio. Doing this could make you eligible for Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration when you graduate. The course is accredited by The Royal Society of Biology and the Institute of Biomedical Science (IMBS). Many graduates from our Biomedical Science degree have become registered biomedical scientists in hospital diagnostic laboratories – in specialised areas such as microbiology, immunology, clinical biochemistry and with the Blood Transfusion Service. Further study on research degrees is also a popular choice for many of our graduates, while others have taken on roles in biomedical and clinical research. Recent graduates have also secured employment with the Paterson Cancer Research Laboratories, Redx Anti-Infectives and Cobra Biologics.Designed for applicants who do not meet our entry requirements for degree level study, then a BSc (Hons) with a Foundation Year is available. You’ll study your first year at City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College and on successful completion join the BSc (Hons) course at the Stoke-on-Trent university campus. High levels of tutor support and guidance will prepare you for degree level study. The foundation year for this course has a long successful track record in providing a smooth transition onto our BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree. This route is useful if you have only studied sciences up to GCSE level or have had a break in your studies.
