    Do an IBMS accredited Biomedical Science course. Non-accredited is pointless and accredited has no downsides. There's no point doing BSc Healthcare Science if you want to go down the research route so doing an IBMS accredited course that does not involve HCPC registration is the best bet, which is most BSc Biomedical Science courses.

    Thanks for your reply! I understand what you're saying but I actually wanted to know what does it mean to be a researcher for biomed?

    If you want to research then it's just a generic degree which you can go into most research with.

    If you're only interested in research then whether a course is accredited or not doesn't matter. You will need a masters if not a PhD though.
