Do you need work experience to apply for biomedical science? I don’t have any work experience that is directly linked but I have a week in a nursery. Also is there any virtual work experience I could do for biomed? I would’ve looked for some to do over the summer but corona has ruined my plans

Hi 2k19GCSES!

Generally work experience is not required for BSc Biomedical Science programs. Admissions tutors mostly want to see that you have a passion for science and are willing to learn. You can demonstrate this through doing online courses, keeping up to date with biomedical news, reading articles and books etc.

Have a look at online courses here!

Hi 2k19GCSES


Generally work experience isn't needed for Biomedical Science as most universities offer it as part of the course, but it does improve your application if you have it. If you are unable to get any then the best thing to do is to see how the work experience you have got can be applied to your application in terms of the skills you have gained. For example, the experience you have gained in the nursery will have shown you are responsible, reliable and hard working etc, all of which are skills that they would be looking for in an applicant.

Hope this helps
