Why Study Biomedical Science with us?

You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidencebased practice. We aim to develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature in an effective manner.

Our course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two publishable scientific articles. Our aim will be to develop these to publication with you if suitable.

Biomedical Scientists are in demand in the healthcare service (NHS and National Blood Service), medical research, pharmaceutical industry, and organisations such as the Health Protection Agency, Medical Research Council and the Health and Safety Executive. On graduation you may also wish to continue with your education with a PGCE, PhD, dental or medical degree.
