I'm in my final year of biomed. I never really looked at becoming a biomedical scientist so I might not be much help. Based on my very limited knowledge I believe you should take a placement year in between your 2nd and 3rd year and if your course is accredited you're on track for approval by the IBMS? If not I believe you can top up your modules to suit the accreditation criteria. Jobs in the NHS are competitive and you'd have to work your way up. Not sure if this helps, I'm sure someone else could advise you more.

Hi charleyhowells

Have you looked into the NHS Clinical Training Program? This may be one way to work your way up https://nshcs.hee.nhs.uk/programmes/stp/

No this is helpful thank you! My placement is coterminous so my placement year acts as my final year but I do have to do some modules to make up my credits. I'm going to have a look at the jobs on the NHS I think just get a feel for what they require

I haven't actually! I've never actually heard of it so that's really helpful. Thank you!
