Biomedical Science courses in Clearing

Biomedical Science

Our Biomedical Science Clearing course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), and covers broad biological principles relating to the normal function of the human body, as well as up-to-date training in medical and disease related topics.

Human Biology and Infectious Diseases

Gain a systematic understanding of the key aspects of human biology and infectious diseases. In addition to studying a core biology curriculum, you will study specialist modules such as pathophysiology and veterinary and zoonotic infectious diseases.

Foundation Years

Are you interested in pursuing one of our biomedical science Clearing places, but need additional preparation? Consider applying for our Biomedical Science with Foundation Year or Human Biology with Infectious Diseases with Foundation Year degree programmes, which will provide you with the essential biological and chemical principles that underpin the field. Studying a foundation year will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to progress to degree-level study.

Biomedical Science Clearing places

Student in Bodmer Lab

On our biomedical science Clearing courses you’ll learn how to apply the principles of biology for medical purposes. Our degree programmes are designed to help you develop the lab skills needed to become a highly employable biomedical scientist – or embark on a career in medical laboratory research.

If you secure one of our biomedical science Clearing places, you will study in our state-of-the-art, £3 million Bodmer Laboratories. Your studies will also be complemented by visits to local pathology laboratories, with advice from leading biomedical scientists and NHS professionals.

At Salford, we welcome you into a supportive environment where you are a name, not a number. You will benefit from small group teaching and one-to-one support from your course tutors, providing you with the chance to learn from active research staff.

Biomedical science courses in Clearing also have a strong practical focus, with the option of undertaking industry placements – a great opportunity to gain some hands-on experience and make those early career connections.

Thomas's story

BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science student, Thomas, tells us how studying this course and his placement in hematology led to him securing a job at the NHS.

What do UCAS clearing Biomedical Science courses involve?

If you choose to study one of our biomedical science courses in Clearing, your first year will be focused on developing your understanding of human biological processes, whilst also introducing you to laboratory techniques.

As your studies progress, you will have the freedom to choose from a range of modules – from human physiology to haematology and pathophysiology. You will also find out what is required to become a registered biomedical scientist.

In your third year of study, your laboratory and academic skillsets will be tested in the form of a final year project. You will select an area of biomedical science and work with leading academics and technicians in the laboratories of Salford’s Biomedical Research Centre.

Karolina's story

A student working in the Bodmer Lab

Karolina, who's studying our BSc (Hons) Human Biology and Infectious Diseases degree, tells us why she chose to study at Salford:

“I have always been fascinated by the human body. I want to know every process, structure, function and fault. I fell in love with Salford during an Open Day, and I admire how big its reputation is becoming. My lecturers are incredibly supportive and, if you’re a dedicated student, they will recommend you for opportunities that will make you stand out from the crowd. After completing my course, I am considering either a physician associate position or a PhD on either microbiology or pathophysiology – there are so many opportunities available to me because of this course!”
