The course is also suitable if you wish to change your subject area or for those whose secondary level science grades have not matched their expectations.

**More about this course**

The BSc Biomedical Science Extended Degree includes a foundation year (Year 0), designed to act as a bridge between previous education or work experience to ensure that students have the knowledge and academic experience to complete a full BSc Biomedical Science degree programme successfully.

Extended degree students join the level 3 programme (Foundation Year) for the first year of study towards a Bachelor's degree in Biomedical Science. Throughout this four'year degree, we'll help build your knowledge and understanding of the molecules, structures, systems and processes which underpin normal cell, tissue and body functioning. You'll be able to independently critically evaluate and develop ideas on issues, methodologies and processes within the biomedical science field.

London Met is proud to be one of a limited number of institutions that offer this route into Higher Education. The programme is run by experienced staff and is carefully designed to be supportive and motivating and to build confidence and academic ability as well as an understanding of what academic study involves.

The foundation year is designed to provide the fundamental knowledge base in key disciplines, such as biology and chemistry, which is required throughout the biomedical science degree course.
