Aston University Biomedical Science

This course is for you if you are looking for a qualification that will give you a springboard to work within the NHS and many health-related institutions.

This course offers a springboard for graduates to work within the NHS and other health-related institutions. Practicing NHS biomedical scientists require a degree accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) – an endorsement we have held for over 10 years.

Hear from Roseanne, a graduate from this course as she discusses her experiences.

During the course, you will gain a deep understanding of the main principles of how the human body works. Going beyond this, you will discover how biomedical scientists find new ways to cure or treat disease by developing advanced diagnostic tools or new therapeutic strategies.

You will initially enrol on to BSc Biomedical Science (C900). You will then have the following options available to you:

  • BSc Biomedical Science: A three year full-time course accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).
  • BSc Biomedical Science with integrated placement year: A four year full-time course involving an integrated placement in an industrial or research laboratory in the third year, accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). You will apply for placements during your second year, with support from the university. If you are successful, you will transfer to this 4 year course.
  • BSc Applied Biomedical Science with integrated clinical placement year: A four-year course involving an integrated one-year clinical placement in a CPA accredited hospital laboratory in the third year. This is the route to take if you wish to become a professional Biomedical Scientist, working in the NHS. You will apply for placements during your second year, with support from the university. If you are successful, you will transfer to this 4 year course. The Applied Biomedical Science route is approved by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), the regulatory body for Biomedical Scientists, and graduates will immediately be eligible to apply to the HPC for registration as professional Biomedical Scientists.
