BSc Biomedical Sciences with a Modern Language / Careers

Year of entry: 2021

Career opportunities

Graduates from modern language courses are extremely desirable to employers who require significant relevant work experience.

In the growing field of international bioscience research collaborations, graduates with a good command of a foreign language are at a distinct advantage.

Our graduates go into a range of careers. 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 mater's, PhDs 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.
