Biomedical Science

This course has been specifically designed in collaboration with local NHS clinical laboratories and has been accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science. Scientific and clinical staff from hospitals in North Wales will be heavily involved in all aspects of teaching and guest presentations will be given by international diagnostic companies.

You will be taught how to investigate various medical conditions including cancer, toxicological insult, food poisoning, anaemia, meningitis and cardiac disease. The course is a 3 year full time programme and there may be an opportunity for those interested in forging careers in NHS pathology laboratories to apply for voluntary work experience during the course. Employment prospects for graduates from this degree are excellent.

Students are required to take 120 credits each year made up of lectures, practicals and interactive exercises, as well as field trips and tutorials. Modules become more specialised as the degree progresses and the number of compulsory modules varies between years. Assessment is by a mixture of formal examination and continuous assessment. Welsh medium modules are also available. The combination of modules for each year of our Biomedical Science degree is shown below. The number of credits is given in brackets after the name of each module.

Length: 3 years, or 4 with clinical laboratory placement.
