    The healthcare science (life) is not available till 2019 and I was wondering the reason for this? I'm considering waiting a year to apply for this degree and wondered the reasons why it's not available in 2018.

    Is there many applicants?

    Is it hard to get into?

    This degree has really changed options for me as I was thinking of biomedical but this degree is perfect but not for another 2 years.

    Hmmm probably waiting for review by academic boards, plus side for you is when you attend in 2019 the degree will be accredited (hopefully) allowing you to do many things like becoming chartered or join a royal society etc.

    I also want to do this degree, but have decided to apply for the Biomedical Science course, and I have emailed admissions to see if it would be possible to do a transfer to this course in the second year!

    I have been accepted and firmed my offer, but if it's not possible to transfer I'll probably just re apply again next year. The degree seems to be becoming more well known, so it's possible it could become more competitive, but a lot of people don't really care to look much further than the Biomedical Science degree to be honest.

    I think the degree is probably being reviewed in terms of the accreditation involved with it, if that makes sense?
