I want to conduct research in the future in areas such as tissue engineering, drug delivery (Especially in cancer treatments), artificial limbs and organs etc...

I've been told that I should do either a Chemical or Mechanical Engineering degree as studying Biomedical Engineering is too specific.

Which degree would get me into this career?

And if I chose Chemical or Mechanical Engineering where should I carry out my year placement? That would increase my prospects in becoming a researcher within biomedical engineering

I even looked on university websites to see what research they conduct and at the University of Bath they carry out all of these areas of research and more. I then looked at the people who conduct this research where some of them had a degree in Chemical Engineering.

If you already know you want to do biomed engineering then do that. Otherwise I'd imagine chemical would be closest. You will have to do a PhD later and can probably switch fields depending on your skills so I'd just pick what you're most interested in at this stage.
