Help with MSc

I have a question and will appreciate any advice,
I have been in norther. Ireland for 1year , I have a bsc and MSc in Human Anatomy and cell biology, I have research and laboratory experience. So I try getting a laboratory job here but seems to be a challenge and I just try to get registered with HCPC (which I don’t know if they will add me up but I read through and my degree covers most of the biomedical requirements; any advice on this will still be appreciated). So I am intending to do another masters in biomedical science at Ulster online but require me to be working in a laboratory;

so my question is
Can I get any private laboratory around that can allow me to carry my research there even if I had to pay or does ulster in any way allow me to use their laboratory facilities even if I am not employed?
An MSc at Ulster will do nothing towards getting you on the HCPC. So don't do it for that reason.

If that's your aim then work on getting your degree assessed and completing top up modules (https://www.ibms.org/registration/degree-assessment-for-hcpc-registration/). I think Ulster offers them but I'm not 100% sure.

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I had my application submitted with HCPC just few weeks back (still waiting on their reply) but I didn’t submit to ibms for assessment and now you said it I just thought about it .
Do you think HCPC will reply me on what to top up with or I should just go ahead and apply for IBMS TO HAVE IT ASSESED FIRST .

The HCPC don't assess your degree. To get HCPC registration (unless you studied and worked outside of the UK) you need a certificate of competence from the IBMS. Without that you can't register with the HCPC.

So get your degree assessed first and they will tell you which modules.
