If you wish to follow this route you must initially apply for BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science and successfully complete the first year. Cohort size is dependent on placement capacity. Admission to the programme will depend on a successful interview to transfer to the second year of Healthcare Sciences and you will then start your first clinical placement. Completion of subsequent modules and final year placement will lead to the award of the degree title BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science. Combining practical and theoretical modules, you’ll gain the knowledge you need to make confident, informed decisions about patient care and treatment in a laboratory setting. Everything you’ll learn is tailored to the NHS, and you’ll spend time each year preparing for an NHS career by learning and working in one of their pathology laboratories. To be admitted to this course you must successfully complete year one of the Biomedical Science degree at UCLan and pass a selection interview.

*Tuition Fees are per year unless otherwise stated. Currently the 2018/19 fee level, which is due to increase in line with UK Retail Price Index inflation rates has not been announced by the Government.
For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our important information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
