    About to start my masters and still feeling stressed about how I'm going to get a job afterwards.
    I don't know anything about science jobs.
    What type of job are you after? Just out of interest

    You know, I'm not sure still.

    I certainly would like to work in a lab, but I also have good written communication skills so it would be nice to be able to put those in use.

    Working in a lab whilst doing some journalism, being a lecturer these sorts of things seem ideal but also as rare as a four leaved clover.

    Being a spy in a animal testing facility :cool:
    Yes, that would be rare, I'm not sure what job would entail both skills if I am honest

    Hi everyone,

    first post on TSR in a long time! I was wondering whether anyone could give me some info on IBMS accreditation.

    I graduated this year from Warwick with a first in biomedical science, but the degree isn't accredited by the IBMS. I was wondering about the experiences of other people who had done non-accredited degrees that have become / are becoming accredited.

    Once you've submitted the info to have your non-accredited course evaluated, if you need to do further modules what happens then with regards to where you study and how much it costs?

    Also with regards to the portfolio, how did you go about finding a placement? Is it a case of applying for an available position at an accredited lab and asking them to take you on to complete your portfolio?

    How did you find the whole process?

    I was going to email the IBMS directly but I thought I'd see about other people's experiences first

    Hi, and congrats on the degree!

    Unfortunately, IBMS registration is a pain in the bum. I graduated with an accredited degree but couldn't do the intercalated placement year because of NHS cuts. Now I can't seem to get a placement, despite applying for them.
    Well done, David Cameron.

    Thank you, and thanks for the info! Sorry to hear you're having trouble.

    Do you have to find out which labs are accredited and approach each one to see if they have any placements available?

    nope, you just apply at any lab.
    But if you're asking with regards to IBMS portfolio completion, you can ONLY work as a biomedy in the NHS if you find a job which allows you to complete it. These are as follows: trainee biomedical scientist or medical lab. scientific assistant - both are incredibly scarce and incredibly competitive.

    I'm a first year biomedical science student studying at QMUL.
    My main interests lie in genetics, neuroscience and ethics.
    It'd be nice to join.

    A levels:
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: C
    English Lit: A*
    Psychology: A*
    Critical Thinking: A*
    Turkish: C

    In retrospect, maybe I shouldn't have done so many A levels and focused more on what I needed to learn

    Hello. I was just wondering if anybody could help me out. I am considering studying Biomedical Science at University next year and I need to know whether studying an IBMS accredited course will narrow my options. After my degree I have aspirations of either going into research at an academic institution/pharmaceutical company or graduate entry medicine. Will studying an accredited degree limit me to only NHS work? Or is a research career still an option?

    Thanks.

    It's definitely still an option, although an accredited course will give you far more flexibility in your module options and therefore may make you more suitable to be considered for Masters/PhD level.
