hey so i have two questions.

to do biomedical engineering at university, it says that i would’ve needed to do Maths and Physics at alevels, but I do Biology, Chemistry and maths. could anyone tell me any universities that do not require physics as an a level? or any foundation courses that allow for a lack of physics a level?

would it be possible to do a biomedical science
bachelors and then a bioengineering masters if i can’t apply for bioengineering straight away?

thanks for any help

Aston Uni: https://www.aston.ac.uk/study/course...september-2021
Nottingham Trent: https://www.ntu.ac.uk/course/science...al-engineering
Swansea: https://www.swansea.ac.uk/undergradu...ineering-hb18/
Kent: https://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/under...al-engineering

any foundation courses that allow for a lack of physics a level?

Surrey: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/undergradua...al-engineering
Swansea: https://www.swansea.ac.uk/undergradu...ion-year-hbc9/

would it be possible to do a biomedical science bachelors and then a bioengineering masters if i can’t apply for bioengineering straight away?

Due to the nature of Engineering courses and the high maths content involved, it may not be possible to go onto a bio engineering degree after biomedical science bachelors. That would obviously be at the discretion of the university you would be applying to. For instance, taken from Imperial MSc:
"Our minimum requirement is a 2.1 degree in an engineering, physical sciences or mathematical subject."

However, from the same website, there is an MSc for "Medical and Life Sciences students"

Hi there,

To answer your first question, the entry requirements for the Biomedical Engineering BEng/Meng course at Aston Uni are:
BBC must include one subject from: Maths/ Physics/ Further Maths/ Biology/ Design Technology/ Engineering Science or Electronics.
BCC must include one subject from Maths/ Physics/ Further Maths/ Biology/ Design Technology/ Engineering Science or Electronics and B in Core Maths or Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

So, provided you get the required grades, your A-levels should be sufficient for the Biomedical Engineering BEng/Meng course at Aston. You can have a more thorough look at the entry requirements here: https://www.aston.ac.uk/study/course...september-2021.
