And out of university after doing a biomedical science degree, what ‘band’ would I be?
Biomedical Scientists start as Band 5, if you’ve completed the portfolio and gained your registration then you will start there. If you aren’t able to do your portfolio, then in order to do become a BMS you’d most likely have to join as a Band 2 MLA.
If you've already committed to a BSc Biomedical Science course unfortunately the route for you now (assuming it is IBMS accredited) is to apply for Band 2 roles so that you're able to tick the "NHS Experience" box and then move on to applying for Trainee Biomedical Scientist jobs, which aren't too common.
Since it's funded by NHS, the course isn't for non UK and EU applicants. Pls correct me if I am wrong. Thank you.
On this website for the course at the University of Bradford it states an International Tuition Fee.
