Course summary


Led by a team of researchers, our biomedical science degree gives you the skills, techniques and hands-on experience you need to succeed in the field of biomedical science. If you’re looking for a fast-paced degree that gives you access to the next generation of scientific equipment and research, then our BSc Biomedical Science is for you.

Using real-life clinical laboratory challenges, you’ll develop your specialist knowledge and learn everything from microscopy and blood typing to DNA analysis, tissue identification and everything in between. You’ll learn from their experiences in science research, biomedical science and medicine – and their current on-campus research into affordable treatment for AIDS-related cancer patients in the first world.

Build your practical skills

Studying biomedical science in London means you’ll get plenty of opportunities to build your professional skills and gain hands-on experience. You’ll also have the option to take a paid sandwich year placement as part of your studies, too.

Using our new laboratories, you’ll get to grips with the latest scientific techniques, instruments and equipment. As part of a small class, you’ll get support that’s tailored to both your studies and your future career ambitions.

How is the DipHE Biomedical Science taught?

The course combines practical clinical sessions and laboratory classes with lectures, seminars, and visits to biomedical science laboratories. You will work on problem-solving exercises and case study analyses, take part in class discussions and presentations, and build up a portfolio of work. Some work will be done in groups. An important part of the course involves designing and undertaking your own research project in your final year. You will also undertake personal study in your free time.

You can opt to extend the course by a year, and spend the third year doing a work placement, for example in a commercial, research or NHS pathology laboratory. Applied Biomedical Science students will do a placement in a local NHS hospital pathology laboratory while they are studying.


Employment prospects for biomedical scientists are excellent. You could find yourself working in laboratories (for universities, hospitals and research centres), and also within the National Health Service, public health, veterinary and agricultural, pharmaceutical or forensic fields.

A number of graduates have pursued careers in education and have also moved into roles as sales representatives for biomedical or bioscience companies. Our graduates now work for organisations such as the Anthony Nolan Trust, NHS Hillingdon, Boots, and NHS Whittington.

You can also explore further academic research on PhD and MSc programmes at universities across the UK and abroad.

Those who do additional placement time in a hospital laboratory (either on the Clinical Laboratory Placement programme of Biomedical Science, or by working in an accredited hospital laboratory after graduation) will gain Health Professions Council registration so they can work as a professional biomedical scientist.
