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 master'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.This degree is not accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science. We have chosen not to have our degree accredited to give you maximum flexibility in your choice of course units. If you are interested in a career as a biomedical/healthcare scientist in the NHS, you can undertake the NHS Scientist Training Programme after you have completed this Biomedical Sciences degree.
This course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology.
Advanced Accreditation recognises academic excellence in the biosciences, highlighting degrees that contain a significant research element and educate the future leaders of research and development.
The criteria require evidence that graduates meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including gaining substantial research experience.
In recognition of this, a graduate of an advanced accredited course can apply for membership of the Royal Society of Biology at Member (MRSB) level after just two years of practice, rather than the usual three.
These graduates can attain the qualifications of Chartered Biologist or Chartered Scientist one year sooner than graduates from other courses.
