About

Applied Biomedical Science programme from the University of Greenwich is designed to provide a knowledge base in the field of biomedical science, is arranged to provide opportunities for graduates to register with the Health Professions Council (HPC) and is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). Students applying for this degree programme will be initially registered onto the BSc Hons Biomedical Science programme, with opportunities for progression onto the BSc Applied Biomedical Science programme at the end of Year 2.

During Year 2 students will be informed of hospital placements and are asked to formally apply for a placement. If successful, the student will be provided with a portfolio to be completed during the practice placement year. Students graduating with a BSc Hons in Applied Biomedical Science students will have successfully completed the placement portfolio (as verified by an IBMS registered verifier). Following this, graduates are able to register with the HPC. The degree is also available part-time for those currently working in an IBMS designated 'training' laboratory.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To advance student academic, professional and laboratory skills for current and future employment in medical diagnostic and research environments
  • To develop relevant knowledge and understanding for the application of theory to practice in the subject areas of study
  • To develop appropriate transferable skills in the use of information technology, communication, numeracy, problem-solving and case study analysis as applicable to biomedical science.
