Offering market relevant courses and training programmes has been the vision of British College Applied Studies ever since it was established in 1999.

Talking about bio-medical science, its uses and applicability, it is a science connected to biology especially in the context of medicine. Biomedical scientists are typically active in biomedical research in fields such as Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, or Microbiology and may have contact with patients in research protocols or in medical laboratory.

Throughout the world these scientists work as engineers or technologists to find innovative ways to cure diseases by developing advanced diagnostic tools and treatment methodologies where physicians and pathologists play a pivotal role.

The general motivation may be stated as: "to increase the body of scientific knowledge on topics related to medicine." Biomedical scientists study disease, drugs, and other topics related to human health. Their role is to develop or improve treatments, vaccines, equipment, and techniques involving health care.

Biomedical scientists tend to focus more on complex medical science and research over treatment techniques and day-to-day medicine as their more patient-oriented physician counterparts.
Biomedical scientists study aspects of living organisms, such as reproduction, growth, and development to develop treatments, prevent disease, and promote health. Their research can investigate health (basic) or investigate how to prevent disorders (applied). Scientists may use human volunteers or models. Workplaces include institutes, hospitals or industries, laboratory-based.

The HND in Biomedical Science is an 18-month course and the successful completion of it will enable the student to complete the top-up degree with universities in the UK. When you are equipped with the degree, you will be eligible to become a Registered Biomedical Scientist. You can be assured that standards are in place to ensure that your chosen biomedical science degree course from UK will be internationally competitive and rigorous, and furnish you with training useful for a valuable future.
