    As the title says. I'm applying for Biomedical Science but I'm wondering if this is the right degree for it? Genetics alone wasn't an option but now I'm thinking maybe I need Medicine for that...?

    Oh also does anyone have any advice about learning course content before starting? Got nothing to do until September as it is...

    Thanks in advance

    You can get into Genetic engineering with a Biomedical Science undergraduate degree. I am not sure what steps you have to take but I am pretty sure that people advise students with a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Sciences to get a masters in genetic engineering when they graduate, however I think it is by no means a prerequisite.

    Have you looked at entry requirements for where you want to study? And genetics is not an option? That's surprising. They usually want a relevant degree which genetics is. Maybe email and ask?

    I've not once seen a Genetic Engineering masters course, may need to do some digging. Thank you

    I'm having to use a foundation year, and Southampton is the only (relatively decent) place I qualify for - and they don't do Genetics separately, so I just picked the course with the most Genetic-related content. Will do though, thank you.
