Biomedical Science secures seal of approval from leading professional body

Date 6.12.2023

A leading professional body’s accreditation of the University of Northampton’s Biomedical Science degree has given a massive boost to the employment credentials of future graduates.

Accreditation of the course by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) confirms it is relevant to current professional practice, informed by the latest advances in research, and anticipates future developments in this critical scientific and biomedical field.

As part of this now-accredited course, graduates are guaranteed to fulfil the academic requirements needed to become an HCPC registered Biomedical Scientist.

The University of Northampton will work in close partnership with the IBMS for the benefit of its students in the months and years ahead to ensure the successful delivery of biomedical science education and training.

IBMS accredited degrees are assessed by professional and academic experts to ensure they offer comprehensive subject specific knowledge alongside high standards of teaching and laboratory facilities that are valued by employers such as the NHS.

Deputy Head of Subject for Science and Programme Lead for Biomedical Science, Dr Jodie Score, said: “Accreditation from IBMS is very significant for the University of Northampton, which we are immensely proud of achieving.

“The accreditation for this programme demonstrates our offer of a solid scientific education to students, including practical, analytical and interpretive skills.

“It is a seal of approval and assurance that the course meets the highest standards required by the IBMS and will provide our fantastic students with the very best grounding for entering their future careers as Biomedical Scientists.”
