This Biomedical Science (including foundation year) (Hons) degree at London Metropolitan University with a built-in foundation year (Year 0) is ideal if you can’t meet the entry requirements or don’t hold the traditional qualification needed to enter the three-year undergraduate degree. On graduation you’ll receive the same title and qualifications as those who study the standard biomedical science course.
During your degree you’ll be supported by experienced tutors and a number of other services at the University to help you settle in, progress academically and prepare for your future career. You’ll learn in an environment that is designed to foster confidence and motivation that will help you to succeed in your studies and beyond.
The foundation year is designed to provide the fundamental knowledge base in key disciplines, such as biology and chemistry, which is required throughout the biomedical science degree course. You will share this year with students from other foundation year courses, so you’ll get to learn alongside students with different academic interests and perspectives on the topics you study.
Where this course can take you
The graduates have found roles in hospital and private medical laboratories, medical research, education and specialised laboratory work.
There will also be opportunities to continue your studies at postgraduate level on our Biomedical Science MSc.
The full degree is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and upon graduation you'll be eligible for Associate Membership of the Institute.
