Biomedical Science is vital for the clinical diagnosis of disease and accurate treatment of patients and the operation of the NHS and other health-related industries.
We combine a hospital-based placement with academic study, so you'll gain the knowledge and practical skills needed in cellular pathology,clinical biochemistry, haematology and clinical microbiology.
Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) and approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the course includes a work-based placement in Scottish NHS hospitals.
The majority of our graduates find employment in NHS clinical laboratories. Some secure posts in industry, working as part of a research team in pharmaceutical development, biological product research and manufacture or conducting research in government, health service and university laboratories.
Our graduates leave university with a balanced knowledge and understanding of all branches of biomedical science after completing a course designed to allow them to become enquiring, independent learners while exhibiting high levels of professionalism.
Half of our assessment methods are practically based, providing hands-on laboratory skills and experience of data handling and presentation. This approach helps to make the programme distinctive and attractive to employers and will also equip graduates with the necessary skills and competencies to allow them to compete in the global marketplace

Glasgow was incredible, I was genuinely surprised when I arrived here. Don’t believe the hype, Glasgow is a bustling metropolis with loads of amazing bars, coffee shops and markets (The Barras is a godsend for decorating your flat) to whittle down your student loan. Caledonian is also a lovely university – I was seriously impressed by their support services, they were very accommodating and helped me out with bursaries and applying for various schemes. They were really dedicated to making sure I was able to achieve my degree with the minimum of financial and health stresses, and I’m very grateful!
