Our IBMS accredited BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree can lead to a wide range of exciting careers in biomedical research. You’ll study in our purpose-built Science Centre under the guidance of specialist academics. Our expertise includes clinical biochemistry, medical microbiology, clinical immunology, cellular pathology and molecular diagnostics. A high proportion of your class contact time will be in the laboratory. All graduates need to complete at least a short-term work placement during their degree, giving you skills and experience for your chosen career. You will be able to apply for a competitive place on our Applied Biomedical Science route. Ideal if you are looking to become a registered biomedical scientist with the NHS, this route involves taking a clinical placement and completion of the registration portfolio, which will make you eligible to apply for Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration when you graduate. The course is accredited by The Royal Society of Biology and the Institute of Biomedical Science (IMBS). Many graduates from our Biomedical Science degree have become registered biomedical scientists in hospital diagnostic laboratories – in specialised areas such as microbiology, immunology, clinical biochemistry and with the Blood Transfusion Service. Further study on research degrees is also a popular choice for many of our graduates, while others have taken on roles in biomedical and clinical research. Designed for applicants who do not meet our entry requirements for degree level study, then a BSc (Hons) with a Foundation Year is available. You’ll study your first year with City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College and then join those on the 3-year BSc (Hons) course at the Stoke-on-Trent university campus. High levels of tutor support and guidance will prepare you for degree level study. The foundation year for this course has a successful track record in providing a smooth transition onto our BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree. This route is useful if you have only studied sciences up to GCSE level or have had a break in your studies. On successful completion of study, we will issue: BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science
