    So I’m currently in my second year of a levels and will be starting uni next year. I’m really interested in biomedical engineering and I hope to be one someday. I’ve read online a lot that it’s better if I do a BEng in a common engineering field like chemical or mechanical and then study biomedical engineering for masters. Does anyone know if this is better? Also if it is, which engineering for BEng would you suggest I take?

    It'll depend on what your career ambitions are. If you're not interested in Chemical or Mechanical, then you could do a BEng/MEng in Biomedical Engineering. Smack may be able to help you.

    The reasoning behind that is that a more traditional undergrad is easier to sell to different industries. Of course, if you're not interested in chemical or mechanical engineering then there is little point in doing them at undergrad. If you really want to do biomedical, then go for it.
