This is the reply I got from the department head:
" By my understanding, there is no regulation for accredited course and employment in NHS. For sure, the graduates from accredited Biomedical engineering course may have better chance to work in medical field. However, NHS can not rule out your work opportunity purely due to the unaccredited course.
Our Biomedical Engineering course is applying for accreditation by the IPEM. This is a lengthy process. We may achieve the accreditation in the future. "
It's still not clear to me what I should do.
I'm thinking of applying to Strathclyde as well, as their Bioengineering program is accredited, although more expensive. I don't know what to do otherwise :/
