1. Help save lives

Doctors and nurses may be on the frontline of administering treatment, but without medical technologists, these services would be far more time consuming and far less effective.

Medical Technology graduates work to improve the quality of healthcare, such as by increasing the accuracy of diagnosis or decreasing the time taken to treat an illness. Study this subject area and you’ll play a part in improving people’s lives.

2. Graduate prospects

Medical Technology students have excellent graduate employability levels, with the majority of graduates in full-time professional employment within six months of leaving university. Not many degrees can assure such secure job prospects.

3. Work experiences

Medical Technology degree courses include plenty of work placements and experiential opportunities. These not only allow you to hone your skills in a practical environment but also give you a taste of the working world.

4. Transferable skills

During your studies, you’ll develop an impressive set of skills that can be applied to many other careers and sectors.

Knowledge of technical processes, the ability to use complex instruments and a high level of scientific aptitude are just a few of the many skills you’ll gain.
