This extremely popular course opens up opportunities for entry into a variety of careers associated with the field of biomedical science. Throughout the programme specialist knowledge is steadily introduced in the areas of anatomy and physiology, disease biology, molecular pathology and cell biology. Building upon these core topics the course then focuses upon each of the main pathology disciplines, expanding your appreciation of the role of biomedical science in the understanding of disease presentation, diagnosis, prognosis and choice of patient treatment. An appreciation of good professional practice and the development of essential employability skills required for today’s competitive job market are also embedded in the course.Important practical techniques that will be covered on the course include DNA analysis, antibiotic resistance, tissue identification, blood grouping and coagulation tests. In addition, you will have the opportunity to undertake an honours research project in your final year, allowing you to develop your skills further in an area of interest to you.Opportunities exist for students on the BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science course to undertake work placements in an NHS hospital laboratory. Students who are successful in obtaining placements will be eligible to transfer to the BSc (Hons) Applied Biomedical Science.There is also an opportunity for you to study medicine (MD degree). The University of Health Sciences Antigua (UHSA) School of Medicine and University of Wolverhampton offer a combined BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science and MD degree Programme that enables you to be accepted to both the Biomedical Science and Medical School courses through a single joint admission process. This program enables students to begin the Basic Science curriculum of the medical program prior to completing the requirements of the BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science programme. Awarding of the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree is contingent upon successful completion of both the prescribed BMed Sci undergraduate and Medical School curriculum requirements. Please note: that Student Finance England will not currently fund the Antigua part of this programme.Completion of the collaborative BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science course and MD degree course will make you eligibility to take the General Medical Council licensing exams, the Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB), to enable you to practise as a medical doctor in the UK. If you wish to practice as a doctor in the U.S. or in Canada, you will also be eligible to take the United States Medical Licensing Examinations (USMLE) in the U.S. and the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Examination (MCCQE) in Canada.Studies for the medical degree consist of two major areas - Basic Science Courses and Clinical Science Rotations. During the Basic Science portion of the medical curriculum, students come to the UHSA campus in Antigua for 8 weeks each summer following the academic year at University of Wolverhampton. At the end of the third summer, students will be required to attend an additional year of Basic Science studies at UHSA in Antigua. The clinical rotations begin when the student has obtained the BSc degree and successfully completed all basic science courses at UHSA.links to http://www.uhsa.ag/ University of Health Sciences Antigua website
There might be a part-time course available for this subject, we are waiting for data from our partner UCAS.
Set in the heart of England, the University of Wolverhampton’s students are benefiting from the most ambitious plan in its history – with £250 million investment generation into the student experience by 2020.
It has three main campuses in Wolverhampton, Telford and Walsall, where academic schools cover subjects within: Arts; Education, Health and Wellbeing; Science and Engineering; and Social Sciences.
Wolverhampton has been named as one of the most cost friendly cities in the UK (meaning your drinks money can last as long as your tins of beans), and even the university itself has been named the ‘friendliest’ in the West Midlands according to former students.
Birmingham is only 20 minutes away, while London, Manchester and Liverpool are also in easy reach on the train and bus.
