Either which way I think you will end up doing a research project which is good. A year abroad also means studying at a uni which may also mean learning a new language which is always beneficial.

Well it depends on whether you're planning on being a Biomedical Scientist or somebody with a Biomedical Science degree.

In order to call yourself a Biomedical Scientist (as its a protected title), you would need to complete a Training Portfolio in an IBMS accredited pathology lab in your sandwich year and then register with the HCPC when you graduate. But if you aren't planning on being a Biomedical Scientist then I would definitely pick the year abroad just for the life experience alone!
