About Biomedical Science with Foundation Year at Liverpool John Moores University

About the Foundation Year

The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the ability to study for a degree but don’t have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Biomedical Sciences honours degree programme.

Once you pass the Foundation Year you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree.

If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).

About the BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences degree

As a Biomedical Science student, you will cover the broad areas of human bioscience and diagnostic science, including medical microbiology, immunology, histology, haematology, medical genetics and cancer alongside basic sciences such as biochemistry, physiology, molecular and cell biology.

Laboratory work is an important part of this course, giving you the high-level skills and understanding required of a biomedical scientist by the time you graduate.

You may consider taking the more practical applied biomedical sciences route, in which case we organise visits to hospital labs during Level 4 to help you decide. Acceptance onto this route is by competitive application. If successful, you will spend about 1,000 hours working in a local pathology laboratory and gaining academic credit for your work-based study.

This will take the form of long summer blocks in a relevant laboratory with further attendance during your final year of study. If you decide not to take this option we encourage you to undertake a year's work placement or a shorter placement between your second and third years to gain experience.

One of the advantages of being accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences is that you can join the Institute in your final year and get copies of their free magazine which has employment information and job advertisements. They also award a prize to the best biomedical science graduate and to other students who have shown particular promise.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
