Hi! So I studied health and social Care level 3 extended diploma and got D*D*D*. I studied this because at the time I was adamant of being a paramedic and college said this was the best course to do so.
However as time went on (I’m now 20) I still haven’t gone to uni. I had an amazing gap year and have since worked in tv as a runner which I love so much!
However I miss education crazy amounts. I want to go and get a degree and a “back up option” to tv which is hard to have a steady career in. Or maybe I’ll prefer my degree to working in tv and do that. I’ve looked at both biomedical science and mental health nursing, both interest me!
Anyway, what I want to know is can I study biomedical science anywhere with health and social care? Looking back I wish I studied science at college, I really regret not doing so. Or would I have to do a foundation of biomedical science? I’d be 21 at the time of the course so I’m worried about being the “old” one living in halls. I don’t really want to do an access course and have already missed the September cohort for this year so that option is kinda gone!
Also what career can I do wirh Bio med? Is it just nhs lab work?
Thankyou!

Hi Student1999_

In relation to entry requirements for Biomedical Science, here at Hull, our entry requirements are 112 UCAS Points (Equivalent from D M M ).

Applicants should have A level Biology/Applied Science at Grade C or above (or merit from relevant BTEC).

I would advise contacting our admissions team as they will be in the best position to advise you with this. You can contact them via email - [email protected] or by telephone 01482466100

In regards to future prospects, there is a range of future careers which you can go into having completed a biomedical science degree.
Heres just a selection:
Biomedical scientist
Forensic scientist
Biotechnologist
Toxicologist
Healthcare scientist
Medical research scientist
Some biomedical scientists work in laboratories for the NHS and private sector. Modern laboratories are the hi-tech hubs of hospitals, at the cutting-edge of medical technology.

You will be eligible to work in academic research, the health service, in biomedical scientist roles, in medical institutions and in education.

Our graduates go into a diverse range of other careers with employers such as ConocoPhillips, RB (formerly Reckitt Benckiser), the Civil Service, Boots, various hospitals and the NHS.


If you would like further information on our biomedical science degree you can visit our website - https://www.hull.ac.uk/study/undergr...1&var=standard

I Hope this helps

Universities have a large impact on the ability to recruit within the Biomedical Scientist profession. We deal with graduates who think they're qualified, but infact have been fed a large volume of misinformation by Universities and those that represent them.

In regards to the sentence highlighted in bold, for any future readers, a graduate in Biomedical Science is NOT eligible for Biomedical Scientist roles. You would be required to firstly gain NHS experience in a Band 2 role (£18k) and then apply for the rather competitive Trainee Biomedical Scientist roles in order to complete a registration portfolio.

Some Universities offer a placement at local hospitals. I'm aware Hull have in the past, however, this is not guaranteed and is competitive, with only a few places among the full cohort.

If anybody wants to be a Biomedical Scientist, it is far faster to apply for BSc Healthcare Science (Life Science) courses, in which you gain a degree and your registration within the normal 3 years.

FYI, Biomedical Scientist is a legally protected title. The only place you can be working is in a NHS laboratory or one of the handful of UKAS ISO 15189 private laboratories.
