KCL non-accredited biomedical science degree Watch
Also, I am hoping to do a Masters and get into research for a pharmaceutical company. What careers apart from teaching do biomed graduates enter?
More about King's College London
The Biomedical Science BSc interdisciplinary degree is one of our more popular programmes due its flexibility and choice. Yes, we have elected not to seek accreditation with the Institute of Biomedical Science but we have found that a wide range of employment exists for bioscientists in fields like fundamental research, drug industries, research management and teaching. Jobs in these fields require people with a proven ability of advanced study and a flexible approach to the biomedical sciences.
External review bodies and employers have repeatedly noted the need for well-rounded science graduates and a flexible bioscience degree provides exactly for these needs. Students from our programme are well-placed for entry to medicine, dentistry, teaching or other careers such as science administration, science journalism or careers in the pharmaceutical industry. Recent graduates have also found opportunities as stockbrokers, management consultants, strategy analysts and researchers.
The programme offers options like study abroad or year in industry which will also expand your employability. Selected students are given the chance of studying the entire second year abroad at universities in the USA, Singapore, Australia or at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden. You may also be offered the chance to take an additional extramural year outside King’s between your second and final year, working in an industrial or research establishment in the UK or elsewhere in Europe. These opportunities expands both your work and research experience, and often improve your choice of job opportunities after graduation.
