Biomedical Scientists are essential members of the modern healthcare team and, in collaboration with doctors and other medical professions, aid in diagnosis of disease, evaluate effectiveness of treatment, and research into causes and cures of diseases. Biomedical Scientists are regulated, on behalf of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), by the IBMS.

Why study this course with us?

You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidence-based practice. We aim to develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature in an effective manner.

The Biomedical Sciences programme offered by the University of Chester culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two articles in the style of published scientific work.

Biomedical Scientists are in demand in the healthcare service (NHS and National Blood Service), medical research, pharmaceutical industry, and organisations such as the Health Protection Agency, Medical Research Council and the Health and Safety Executive. On graduation you may wish to continue with your education with a medical degree, physician associate or dental training, PhD, or PGCE.

                        Academic Requirements

                        You need the following GPA score:

                        Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Lower Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

                        Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

                        UK/EU students:

                        • Applicants should normally have an honours degree containing a significant content of biological/biomedical science or a relevant postgraduate qualification, or substantial relevant work experience together with evidence of recent study or writing at an appropriate level.
                        International students:
                        • Students from countries outside the UK are expected to have entry qualifications roughly equivalent to UK A Level for undergraduate study and British Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) for postgraduate study. 
                        • We accept a wide range of qualifications and consider all applications individually on merit. We may also take into account appropriate work experience.
