Biomedical Science


Do you find science exciting? Are you interested in medicine? Would you like to work in a lab? Then our course is just the one for you. We’ll show you how to handle the latest technology and teach you the most up-to-date methods used in lab testing.

Did you know, …

… that we have six laboratories?

Our students have access to specialist labs for clinical chemistry, cell culture, molecular biology, microbiology, haematology and immunohaematology, immunology and microscopy. These labs are used a great deal in our practice-based course.

Did you know, …

… that, from the second semester, students go on external work placements?

To give our students the best possible preparation for working life, from the second semester onwards they work in a variety of external labs during work placements undertaken each semester. This introduces them to a number of different areas of activity.

Did you know, …

… that biomedical scientists are involved in teaching the lab practicals?

Biomedical scientists are responsible, along with others, for developing and running practical classes. This ensures that students are taught relevant skills and procedures by experienced practitioners.

Did you know, …

… that lab results and patient samples are dealt with by a biomedical scientist?

Biomedical scientists are an important intermediary between patients and doctors, receive patient samples and are responsible for the entire analytical process.

Did you know, …

… that biomedical scientists don’t just work in the lab, they also work with patients?

Through jobs in fields such as functional diagnostics (e.g. lung function), for example, they work directly for and with patients.

Did you know, …

… that biomedical scientists can also work in primary health care and in research?

Because of their practical training biomedical scientists are highly regarded team players both in primary health care, in processing patient samples and in research institutions.
