Key contributors to modern healthcare, biomedical scientists play a vital role in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease, monitoring treatments and developing advanced diagnostic tools or novel therapeutic strategies.

Laboratory sessions are a fundamental component of the course and aim to help with the development of not only laboratory techniques, but also data interpretation and analysis. Within the lab you will have the opportunity to gain experience of techniques such as PCR, cell culture, flow cytometry, tissue staining, protein detection and microbial culture.

You’ll be taught by experienced academic staff who have a range of hospital and research laboratory experience, bringing their expertise into their teaching (please note staff are subject to change). Biomedical Science - Applied Biomedical Science (Hons) degree is offered at Coventry University .


These courses aim to prepare you for professional practice within the National Health Service (NHS) or private sector as registered Biomedical Scientists and a range of other careers including research. It is also possible to use your qualifications to help you further your studies and progress into teaching in schools, colleges or universities.

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).
