Whether it’s investigating a type of cancer or understanding the cause of food poisoning, biomedical scientists play a crucial role in diagnosing disease and evaluating effective treatment. Doctors make decisions based on the results of tests carried out by biomedical scientists in the pathology laboratory, while patients benefit from their experience and expertise. Without their skills, key hospital departments such as Accident and Emergency couldn’t operate effectively. Our course offers an in-depth understanding of the causes of disease and the practical ways in which they can be investigated in the laboratory. These are the fundamental areas of knowledge that you’ll need as a biomedical scientist. Course Leader Dr Claudio Scotti believes the popularity of the course is because its “broad-based”. It’s ideal for students who want to make a career in bioscience but have not yet decided in exactly what area to specialise. The course, which offers extensive laboratory training, shares a common first year with other bioscience degrees, so you’ll have the option to switch to a similar degree course at the end of your first year if you wish. The course is also available with a year-long work placement between years two and three. If you choose this option, you’ll have the chance to spend your third year working in a laboratory, adding valuable practical experience to your growing academic knowledge. If you dont meet the entry requirements for a BSc degree, you have the option of taking an extended, four-year version of this course. You’ll take a bioscience foundation year which will prepare you for the BSc degree.
You must have successfully completed an United Kingdom Year 12 (or equivalent senior secondary school qualification) Equivalent qualifications may also include a recognised post secondary diploma in the relevant discipline with the required grades. Meeting the minimum academic requirements does not guarantee entry. Your application will still need to be assessed and accepted. If you dont meet the entry requirements, there may be other programs you are eligible for that can lead you to your preferred program.
