About The Course

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” Are you going to be the one to discover it?

Biomedical science has proven time and again that when the resources are provided, great progress in the treatment, cure, and prevention of disease can occur.

This course introduces all of these ideas as well as more vocationally linked topics. Biomedical Science provides an alternative route to university to study a variety of science or health-based degree courses, or serves to prepare you for the world of work in the medical industry.

The Biomedical Extended Diploma is a full-time course, but a Diploma or Extended Certificate can be studied alongside an A Level/s. Depending on the route you decide, you will study a range of topics including: Physiology of the Human Body (researching structure and function of organs and lymphatic system), Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Genetics and Biomedical Science (haematology, biochemistry, pathology or histology). There will be two examined components based on chemistry, physics and biology as part of this course.

What We Add

You will benefit from excellent facilities, including hi-spec laboratories with access to a wide range of the latest medical study materials. There will also be opportunities for trips to hospitals and laboratories, and to hear from guest speakers within the medical spectrum.

How Can I Standout With Biomedical Science

This course is particularly suitable if you are interested in working in the fields of pathology, biomedical science, mental health nursing, midwifery, child and adult nursing, paramedic science, pharmaceuticals, radiology, dentistry, medicine, veterinary science, veterinary nursing and laboratory technicians.
