On our biomedical science Clearing courses, you’ll learn how to apply the principles of biology for medical purposes. Our degree courses 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.

As a biomedical science student, you will be based in our advanced, integrated teaching laboratory, known as the Bodmer Lab. This specialist, purpose-built facility ensures you’ll learn using the latest, cutting-edge technologies.

At Salford, we’ll 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.

Our biomedical science Clearing courses have a strong practical focus and the option of going on an industry placement. This offers a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience and make those early career connections.

Career support is also offered throughout GEMMS (Graduate Entry Medicine Mentoring at the University of Salford). GEMMS is a programme that offers comprehensive mentorship in interview techniques, debating skills, and ethical scenarios. Through GEMMS, we also facilitate opportunities for work experience and help students prepare for job interviews, to ensure they’re ready for their future career.

BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science

Our BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), which means it meets their requirements for receiving up-to-date knowledge in the right learning, support and teaching environment. Studying an accredited course shows employers that you have the knowledge and skills they are looking for in graduates. Studying one of our accredited biomedical science courses in clearing also provides greater employability prospects and enhanced competitiveness in a crowded global jobs market.

You will have the option to take an industry placement year between years two and three of this course. Although you will be responsible for securing your placement, a tutor will support you, monitor your progress and assess your final placement report. Recent biomedical science students have completed placements with leading laboratories at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester Royal Infirmary, and Aintree Hospital.

BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science with Foundation Year

If you’re interested in learning how to apply biology-based science to clinical medical situations, then our BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science with Foundation Year is for you. The foundation year of this four-year course will provide you with an understanding of the subject, to allow you to progress on to the BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science course.

At the University of Salford, we encourage industry-focused learning. Students have previously had the chance to visit local pathology laboratories and speak with external NHS specialists

Karolina's story

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!”
