Content

Biomedical scientists are responsible for conducting vitally important scientific tests, which underpin the diagnosis and treatment of human disease. This cutting-edge scientific analysis contributes greatly to the clinical outcomes of patients.

Taught by a combination of academic experts and clinical professionals, this wide-ranging programme is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS)

After following a common pathway for two years, you’ll take either the Standard or the Applied programme route. The Applied route includes an 18-week placement, some taking place in award winning laboratories, and is particularly relevant for those keen to become a Biomedical Scientist in the NHS. The Applied route is Approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

MSci Biomedical Science route - subject to approval: The university plans to introduce an MSci integrated Master's degree, allowing students to progress to a 5th year of study, focussing on a specific area of their programme in more depth.
