Hi there! I'm an international student who'd like to study biomedical sciences in the UK in 2020. I've just received my AS results (a for bio, chem, maths and physics but i've just dropped physics). I was wondering which universities would be good for biomed. Currently these are the universities i'm looking at but i'm definitely open to other options!
-Imperial
-Edinburgh
-KCL
-Cardiff
-Bath
-Warwick (maybe)



Please share your input/experiences, it would be very helpful for me in making my decision.

Bristol - and not just for Biomed, look also at the Cellular and Molecular Medicine program : http://www.bristol.ac.uk/cellmolmed/...undergraduate/ Interesting subject areas and you can switch between courses once you have started.

I chose Imperial and I start in late September so can't really give any input atm, but I was drawn by their rankings in tables and at how well equipped the facilities are. Also, the course at Imperial doesn't really utilise lectures in the traditional sense, they seem to be a fan of putting content online for you to learn beforehand, and then in your 'lectures' you get questioned on it and discuss in groups etc.

Are you looking to work as a Biomedical scientist within the NHS or for you to do research after? If it is the former, then look into universities that are accredited by the IBMS

Oh I see. Did you study in Bristol? If you did, how was your experience?

Yes, I am drawn to imperial mainly due to their ranking but a downside for me is I'm not too inclined on staying in London. Also Imperial doesn't offer a professional placement year, does it? I guess this goes out to anybody who knows but would it be better if I attend a university with the professional placement year?
I wish you all the best then!

I just recently found out about that actually but unfortunately, none of the universities I'm looking at is accredited. so far I haven't really decided what kind of work I would like to do after but should I choose to work within the NHS, how might I get accredited later on?

This link might be able to help:

I think the IBMS accreditation ensures that you complete the right assessment and certain modules. I have heard it’s harder to get accreditation but not impossible. All the best.

Unless you're from the EU you're unlikely to get a job in the UK so you may want to have other options apart from working in the NHS as well.
