Biomedical Science is vital for the clinical diagnosis of disease and accurate treatment of patients and the operation of the NHS and other health-related industries. We combine a hospital-based placement with academic study, so you'll gain the knowledge and practical skills needed in cellular pathology,clinical biochemistry, haematology and clinical microbiology. Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the course includes a work-based placement in Scottish NHS hospitals. The majority of our graduates find employment in NHS clinical laboratories. Some secure posts in industry, working as part of a research team in pharmaceutical development, biological product research and manufacture or conducting research in government, health service and university laboratories.
