    Applied Biomedical Science


    Course summary

    Our Applied Biomedical Science BSc offers an integrated approach to the study of human health and disease, with an emphasis on the diagnosis and understanding of disease processes from a medical diagnostic perspective. This course is only open to you if you are employed in a suitable accredited biomedical laboratory able to support work-based learning, and you'll need a written statement of support from your employer.

    The course builds on the practical knowledge developed within the workplace and provides underpinning knowledge essential to the development of practising biomedical scientists.

    Initially, you'll study the important fundamental sciences, including biochemistry, cell biology, and human anatomy and physiology.

    You'll develop your understanding of disease processes and the biology of the associated molecular changes, combined with the principles of laboratory procedures used to aid diagnosis.

    As the course progresses, you'll focus increasingly on the complex nature of disease as it affects particular biological systems, and the study of disease processes.

    Top reasons to study with us

    • An accredited course – the degree is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council and accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science and the Royal Society of Biology
    • Professional teaching staff – many staff in Biomedical Sciences are also members of the Institute of Biomedical Science and some are also HCPC Registered
    • Career-led learning – the course helps students develop the practical skills they need for work undertaken in laboratory settings and produces graduates capable of carrying out scientific research


    Entry Requirements

  • International Baccalaureate – 27 points to include a minimum of 4 in two Higher Level science subjects. We also welcome applications from students taking the IB Career related Programme
  • English Program Requirements

    If your first language is not English you should have an IELTS 6.0 with 5.5 in one component.


    Students on the Applied Biomedical Science degree pathway need to already be employed as healthcare professionals in approved laboratories, whether in hospital or private diagnostic practices. Many students also undertake work experience at other stages of the course, often at a high professional level. Our location in London facilitates you in finding such experience, with numerous opportunities available within the biomedical laboratories in London, the UK and abroad.

    Our aim is to foster a culture of gathering expertise, building professional networks, and expanding academic learning with the knowledge and skills gained in laboratory environments.
