I am planning to apply for Biomedical Engineering at university. However, some people from my work experience told me it would be better if I did a traditional engineering course first and then to my Masters on Biomedical Engineering

I would just like to ask about opinion if it would be better to do a course on the traditional Engineering (e.g Mechanical/ Electrical) first and do a Master's on Biomedical Engineering or do an Undergraduate degree on Biomedical Engineering straight on?

That sounds like a nice idea, i dunno if employers would see that as a bad or good advantge or if ita even possible but remember you will pay for that masters on your own unless you do the master for a traditional engineering, and than another self payed masters.

If I straight on did an undergraduate course on Biomedical Engineering, would I be doing a masters on it and pay by myself?

MEng is an integrated Masters and is funded by SFE. They are undergraduate and are 4 years long (or 5 if you do a YINI). So you could do MEng Biomedical Engineering instead of BEng or BSc (3 years)

eg. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/ug/...ineering-meng/

ohhh thank you
and do you think it would be better to do mechanical engineering and just go onto Biomedical engineering later on? or should I just do Meng Biomedical engineering?

If you are SURE you want to do Bio you may as well start with that now. But it's often better to be more general at the beginning of your career and then specialise later. But a BEng in Mechanical followed by MSc Biomedical may be expensive unless you can get PG funding.

I don't know if Biomedical Engineering starter jobs specify a BioEng degree. They probably don't... any engineering (or bio sci) degree may be acceptable. Would be worth checking.

Whatever you choose first you can get the masters funded as long as its integrated masters (meng). If you wanna do biomed after whther thats if you also did a mechanical engineering masters or not you will pay for it yourself because it will become seperate. This route will therefore cost you, but engineering masters arent that expensive, you can save up for it but you need to decide if that route is really worth it.
