BSc Biomedical Sciences with Industrial/Professional Experience / Careers

Year of entry: 2021

Career opportunities

The significant and relevant work experience gained during the year of industrial/professional experience makes graduates of this course especially attractive to employers.

Many of our graduates secure jobs as researchers working in universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies and institutes.

Some of our graduates progress into laboratory-based careers in clinical or technical roles that do not involve research eg NHS Scientist Training Programme. Others use their degree as a platform for postgraduate study eg master's, PhD and medical degrees. 

The transferable skills you will develop will also leave you well-equipped for a wide range of careers outside the lab, such as medical writing, health communication or teaching.

Find out more about  how we help our students prepare for the workplace  and the careers our graduates go into within and outside the lab.

Accrediting organisations

This course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology, recognising academic excellence in the biosciences and highlighting the significant research element.

Graduates meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including gaining substantial research experience. A graduate of an advanced accredited course can apply for membership at Member (MRSB) level after two years of practice, rather than three.

You can then attain Chartered Biologist or Chartered Scientist status one year sooner than graduates from other courses.

This degree is not accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science for maximum flexibility in your choice of course units. If you are interested in being an NHS biomedical/healthcare scientist, you can undertake the  NHS Scientist Training Programme .
