Overview

The BSc Biomedical Science and Applied Biomedical Science (Hons) at Coventry University explores the science and functioning of the human body in health and disease down to a cellular and molecular level, providing specialist knowledge about the cause of major diseases and how they can be treated.

Our extensive links with leading healthcare and research laboratories enable us to ensure course content is kept up-to-date. Particular emphasis is placed on the specialist areas of biomedical science: clinical biochemistry, medical microbiology, cellular pathology, haematology, immunology and genetics. 

Career prospects

The course aims to prepare you for professional practice within the National Health Service (NHS) as registered Biomedical Scientists. It is also possible to use your qualifications to help you further your studies and progress into teaching in schools, colleges or universities.

You will receive guidance during your studies on the professional routes available to you and the expectations of health professionals. We have excellent links with local employers and are actively involved in liaison with laboratory managers, training officers and other universities via the West Midlands Biomedical Science Training and Workforce Planning Group and the West Midlands regional training committee (South).

On successful completion, you can apply for entry into NHS Health Care Scientist registration training programmes, for which you will typically undergo one to two years of further training to obtain an IBMS certificate of competence so that you can apply for HCPC registration, a legal requirement for anyone who wishes to practice using a title protected by the HCPC. Successful completion of Applied Biomedical Science course provides eligibility to apply for registration with the HCPC.
