Lower Fees for October 2012 Registration
We offer a range of Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) Accredited
top-up modules from our Biomedical Sciences Honours degree programme for science graduates who have hold a non-accredited Honours degree but wish to pursue a career as a biomedical scientist. These modules will allow you to obtain the academic competences that are required to apply to the Health Professions Council for Registration as a Biomedical Scientist.
Before applying, ideally you should contact the IBMS
and ask for your degree to be assessed, in order to confirm that it is eligible for “Top-Up” and to determine the additional subject areas in which you need further qualifications. The most common topics for knowledge enhancement are listed below. Of course, you can also take these modules for professional development other than IBMS registration, if you wish.
The modules are available “by attendance”, but we make extensive use of the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) Blackboard 9. All course material, including recorded lectures, self-assessment quizzes, timetables, and some directed reading is available online; coursework submission and feedback are also mainly via this route.
If your degree is not eligible for Top-up but you still wish to become a registered Biomedical Scientist, we recommend that you apply to take our accredited Biomedical Sciences undergraduate degree
Modules available for accredited Top-Up
PLEASE NOTE that we welcome international students who are already in the UK with a valid visa, but unfortunately we will not be able to register you if you are outside the UK and wanting to come to the UK solely to take the course. Please send a scanned copy of your UK visa, and of your passport main page, to Caroline Brocklebank
firstname.lastname@example.org before applying so we can check you are eligible to take the top up modules.
