I want to transfer universities for point 2 entry. The one I am at currently is accredited for biomedical sciences but the one i want to transfer is not accredited. I want to do graduate medicine (4 year course), therefore; will it be important for my biomedical sciences degree to be accredited or not?
Thank you in advance

It depends what you want to do afterwards. If you want to be a biomedical scientist working for the NHS, an accredited degree is beneficial. However, a lot of very good universities don't do the accredited course, and you still have great work prospects (although it may be harder to get into the NHS, such as doing an accredited masters). A few people I know have just graduated an unaccredited course and one now works in forensics and another is an editor at a publisher of science textbooks.
