Biomedical Science Degree- limited opportunitiesWatch
So one option would be to transfer onto a healthcare science (life sciences) course after my foundation year. Are people who do foundation years able to transfer to a health care science course (life sciences)? How competitive are health care science courses? I assume that would affect the likelihood of me being able to transfer and my alevel grades only leave me at a disadvantage in that respect.
My other option would be to do the biomedical science course after my foundation year as I had planned. How likely is it that I will be able to get a NHS placement? And what could I do to increase the chances of getting one?
If you get good grades in a biomedical science degree that is accredited, then you should be fine. I know lots of people who got placements to become a biomedical scientist. Ur main challenge is that you are doing it at MMU, not the subject itself.
Its just you are competing for placements with others at better universities. However as long as biomed at MMU is accredited and you get a solid 1st and interview well. Then should be no problem.
BDD which isn't great tbh 😂 and I didn't do any science subjects, which is why I'm doing a foundation year. How did you find the course? Did you find it hard? And what did you go on to do after you graduated?
I didn't realise it was looked down on so much tbh I was originally going to do psychology and I was so set on going there after going on an open day. Maybe we'll bump into each other lol are you staying in the halls?
Yeah I don't know anyone going to MMU so it's not looking good 😅 and I'm quite shy so I'm probably not gonna go clubbing. I'm gonna have to push myself to try and go to events tbh so hopefully it won't be too bad. My timetable keeps changing so I guess they haven't finalised it yet 🤷🏽 have you seen your time table?
I would absolutely advise talking to both careers and the relevant Admission's Tutor at MMU. I know two graduates from their Healthcare Science course (I work with them as fellow Biomedical Scientists).
If you want to be a BMS in the NHS, that is absolutely the best route to do.
