Biomedical science

Does anyone know what uni is best for biomedicine?
I do biology, psychology and history a levels, although many unis require biology and chemistry. Is it worth taking a foundation year? Ive looked into queeny marys uni but ive found out the course is accreditated?

Hi Happyllamas12,

For Biomedicine, you definitely want an accredited course - you need this to work in hospital labs etc.

At UCLAN we offer a great Biomedical Science degree (you can check it out here: https://www.uclan.ac.uk/undergraduate/courses/biomedical-science-bsc). We ask for 104-120 points at A2 including Chemistry OR Biology at C. I’ve had a few friends graduate from this course who have managed to get jobs in the sector already!

A foundation year is obviously an extra year of work but worth it if you don’t get the grades required, don’t want to resit and want to go into uni straight after A Levels. I did a foundation year in Biology after having completed only one year of a BTEC and it really solidified my understanding of the a level science subjects, as well as maths. It’s really useful if you need the extra background knowledge.

Hope this helps.

Good luck,
Chelsea 🤗
There is no 'best' - just the right course and Uni for you and your grade predcitions.
