What I would highlight My years at Coventry have been enjoyable, I have met a variety of people I would have otherwise never had the chance to meet. My lecturers and tutors are lovely people and it is clear they love their job, which motivates me to attend my lectures. The clubs and societies give you a chance to take a break from studying and have a bit of fun. They offer us presentations of past work experience students, we are also given easy access to the employability unit within the university, so there are many people we can talk to, plus theirs constant employability and work experience fairs taking place in the hub and square one.

What I would highlight My degree is taught very well, lecturers are very enthusiastic about the topics they teach and will always take the time to make sure that you understand everything. Lectures are always on an online system with extra content. There is always guided further reading and the opportunity to go further with your education. This is supported by all of the staff at the university. My degree is accredited so it puts me at a good advantage ahead of other Biomedical Scientists, there is a lot of opportunities and announcements about placements and jobs available. There is a very good student support system and the university is constantly evolving to the advantage of the students. For example, one society decided that there was not enough veggie/vegan food on campus, this has been debated in a student meeting and the university are now exploring vegan food options.

This Biomedical Science course runs in 2016/17.

This course has a September and a January intake.

Biomedical Scientists play a vital role in the diagnosis and prevention of disease and the monitoring of treatment. Biomedical Science degrees are broad based science degrees which aim to integrate a wide range of subjects to promote understanding of the biology of disease.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

Upon successful completion, you should have gained the appropriate knowledge and advanced laboratory skills to apply for careers in the biomedical science field, including those relating to the diagnosis and management of human disease, and laboratory careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

If you choose this course you will benefit from:

  • Accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS);
  • Applied Biomedical Science is approved by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC);
  • the opportunity to apply for entry into National Health Service (NHS) careers;
  • help applying for placements in laboratory settings and in other fields such as teaching;
  • academic staff who have hospital laboratory experience and are active in research and bring this into their teaching;
  • hands-on experience of a wide range of techniques in modern, well-equipped laboratories which give you the expertise and skills required to compete in the graduate job market;
  • a focus on student-centred teaching in which you can take part in mini-projects where you devise and carry out your own laboratory experiments. This will help you to demonstrate to future employers that you can work independently and solve problems;
  • guest lecturers who are currently employed as biomedical scientists in hospital laboratories to teach areas such as haematology, virology and clinical biochemistry.

Laboratory work is a substantial component of the course, enabling you to learn a wide range of techniques in modern, well-equipped laboratories and help them develop the key experimental, data handling and reporting skills required in biological careers. Considerable focus is also placed on graduate-level skills which are essential when you apply for jobs.

HOW WILL THIS COURSE BE TAUGHT?

Your course will be based on lectures, with associated laboratory practical classes and workshop activities.

All students are initially admitted to the IBMS accredited Biomedical Science degree. However, students who are successfully selected for a one year placement in a hospital laboratory, between year two and three, can transfer to the HCPC approved Applied Biomedical Science degree.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

An estimated percentage breakdown of how your final grade is assessed is as follows: formal examinations 25%; coursework, tests, essays 45%; practical or project work 20%; group work etc.5%; presentations, posters etc.5%.
