Successful students will be qualified to progress into an appropriate BSc Honours programme. The Biomedical and Physiological Sciences course at University of Westminster combines biomedical science and physiology undergraduate modules with work-based learning modules.
You will study modules containing human anatomy and physiology, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and disease investigation. However, you will start the course with a study skills module to prepare you for online learning and a range of general course requirements.
The course also contains a substantial element of work-based learning aligned to your professional responsibilities in your employing laboratories. Your course work will be assessed online, but you will need to attend University for formal examinations.
The course is approved by the Institute of Biomedical Science and suitable for anyone employed in a scientific diagnostic, research or production setting.
For those employed in healthcare science, the Foundation Degree in Biomedical and Physiological Sciences is a suitable qualification for Agenda for Change, Band 4 Associate Practitioner posts.
Those who successfully complete the course may choose to progress to a full BSc award in Applied Biomedical Science or Biomedical Sciences, the former meeting the requirements for direct application to the Health and Care Professions Council register for Biomedical Scientists.
For diagnostic and non-diagnostic settings, this award meets the education requirements for Registered Scientist applications to the Institute of Science and Technology.
