This course is designed for those following careers as biomedical scientists in the wider context of biomedical science (including biopharmaceutical and bio-industries).

It is not a suitable qualification for the purposes of Health and Care Professions Council registration in the UK. This course provides an academically challenging and vocationally relevant science education for those wishing to develop their career in the biosciences, pharmaceutical or bio-industries. Students can take specialisms in: cellular pathology; clinical chemistry; haematology; and medical microbiology. The course is completely online. The project is carried out in the students' place of work under a work based-supervisor. Suitably qualified graduates may also choose to proceed to higher postgraduate degree programmes within the biosciences.
