Introduction

Why choose this course?

Biomedical Science is a course that covers a huge range of topics, such as cancer screening, diagnosing HIV, blood transfusion, the control of infections, immunology and conditions such as cancer and heart disease. It could be the ideal course for you if you enjoy laboratory investigation and the monitoring of diseases.

You'll be introduced to biological and chemical principles, molecular and cell biology, physiology, anatomy, biochemistry, and relevant laboratory techniques.

You'll also independently research a subject that interests you. This might include a laboratory-based project, an analysis of survey information, or a review of scientific literature.

Reasons to choose Kingston University

  • This degree is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). If you also complete the IBMS Training Portfolio, you can apply to register as a Biomedical Scientist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
  • You can choose to take a four-year sandwich degree, with a year's overseas study, or an industrial placement to give you a career head start.
  • You'll gain first-hand experience in a busy research or diagnostic laboratory.

Accreditation

This degree is accredited for 2022 entry by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS); we are currently renewing our accreditation for 2023 entry. It is not approved by The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) for Registration. However, when put together with the completion of the IBMS's Registration Training Portfolio, it does provide eligibility to apply for HCPC Registration as a Biomedical Scientist. The IBMS Training Portfolio can potentially be completed during the placement year of the four-year sandwich course (B931); however, the majority of students undertake this after graduation, once in appropriate employment.
