    Yes, no one lab is the same! It all depends on who you work with, size of the department etc, so many variables! So I take it that you're a medic/going to study medicine? I was quite the opposite, like any man/woman of science I considered studying medicine, but I enjoyed the scientific side of things, rather than providing treatment.
    Thanks for being informative here) Can you please say , where can we work after graduating from accredited Biomedical science course (except in NHS as a biom scientist)?

    I applied for dentistry post-BMS, however failed to get a successful offer. Which university are you at?
    That's a shame, keep trying though! The few post-grad dentistry courses also like A-level chemistry on-top of a degree don't they? I'm at Cardiff Met.

    Any job where the transferable skills related to the degree can be applied. I'm not going to list them all - got to http://www.prospects.ac.uk and search for biomedical science, you'll find everything you need.

    I'm in this dilemma atm!
    I like BMS because of the academic side of things but radiography (therapeutic ) is so much more patient based!
    I honestly just want a job by the end of the degree.
    What's in more demand?!

    So, i got conditional offers , for biomedical science and other for radiography course. The fact is , I just cannot decide which course is better and more prospective? What is more, I heard that job as a radiographer is very hard and stressful, but the salary for them in nhs are the same. And I think studying a radiogrpahy is very hard, am I right?
    Thanks for advice.
    This is my current situation , couldn't make up my mind which one to take . Which one did you do ?

    I would go for Radiography I finished my Accredited biomedical science course in 2013 but because I didn't do a placement as these are Extremely RARE. I couldn't do my portfolio for the Certificate of Competence to get HCPC registration. I have applied for all the Trainee Positions for THREE years and still nothing. With Radiography you are GUARANTEED a work placement with a near 91% being taken on and if you are in the 9% you'll probably have 3 years experience of training under your belt. with a Biomedical Science degree you only have a year experience if you are lucky enough to get a work placement.
