    Hi all. I am due to graduate this summer with a degree in Medical Science (BMedSc) from Birmingham. I was wondering whether I need to apply for some council to get a registration? I know medicine students get GMC registration and some courses get other council registrations (e.g. HPC, etc). Do we get some sort of registration automatically or do I need to apply for registration myself?

    Thanks 🤓

    Registration for what? Yours isn't a professional/vocational degree, it sounds like an academic one so you don't need to register it.

    Hi. Thanks for your reply. I just wasn't sure if I need to register or not as some biomedical science jobs may require some sort of registration.

    To apply for biomed jobs in the NHS you need to have either done an IBMS accredited degree or to put together and submit a portfolio for evaluation. You don't need to register otherwise.

    Ok. My course is not accredited according to IBMS list of universities (so I am assuming I do not register anywhere?). Does this also mean I cannot work in the NHS straight after graduating then?

    Contact the IBMS and find out how to submit your portfolio for registration.
