Healthcare Science - Cardiff Metropolitan University

Healthcare Science is a dynamic and continually evolving discipline that requires highly trained individuals to perform an array of laboratory based techniques that contribute to the overall care and wellbeing of patients. The professionally accredited BSc Healthcare Science degree at Cardiff Met is specifically designed to enable students to develop, integrate and apply scientific knowledge and skills to the multi-disciplinary investigation of human health and disease. With elements of work-based training incorporated into every year of the programme, it is carefully tailored to prepare graduates for a career in the NHS.​ The Healthcare Science degree is closely linked with the workforce planning requirements for NHS Wales, therefore offering an enhanced level of employability. During the second year of study, students will specialise in one of the following disciplines: Blood Science, Cellular Science, Genetics Science* or Infection Science. Successful graduates will also be eligible to apply for registration as a Biomedical Scientist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), further enhancing the career opportunities. This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology for the purpose of meeting in part the academic and experience requirement for Membership and Chartered Biologist (CBiol).
