What will I learn?

Bioengineers are leading the way in tackling modern healthcare challenges. From the development of rapid testing technologies to designing new life-saving devices. Bioengineering lives at the interface of engineering and medicine. It advances knowledge in engineering, biology and medicine, improving lives through cross-disciplinary activities. This new course has been developed for a world where working together to solve global health problems is more important than ever. This course allows outstanding clinical and life sciences graduates to develop their technical skills and understanding of biomedical engineering. It enables them to apply these skills and knowledge to the development of life-saving technologies.

This course prepares you to analyse and solve problems in bioengineering using an integrated, multidisciplinary approach. During the course, you will develop your knowledge and be able to share your own skills and expertise through interaction with students on other programmes in the Department.

Teaching will be based on our South Kensington Campus. Some research projects and optional seminars may be based at our new White City Campus. This is an exciting time, as the College prepares for the launch of The Sir Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Hub that will drive clinical translation of MedTech innovation through integrated clinical and imaging facilities and proximity to the Hammersmith Hospital campus.

Entry requirements

For students from United States

Applicants should hold a Bachelor's degree. The minimum requirement is based on the university's selectivity ranking; from the most competitive we look for a minimum cumulative GPA of 3/4 to 3.25/4 or better. From other mainstream universities we look for a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5/4 or better. Departments may require a higher grade from particular institutions.

For international students

The minimum entry requirement is a 2.1 degree (or equivalent) in a clinical or life science degree. Applicants awarded an unclassified clinical degree (e.g MBBS, MBChB and MChD/BChD) are expected to show good academic standing (typically within the top 50% of their medical school cohort). Where a graded intercalated degree has been undertaken at least a 2.1 should have been achieved. An ‘A’ grade in A-level maths is desirable. Students should have IELTS scores 6.5 overall (minimum 6.0 in all elements). Students should have TOEFL scores 92 overall (minimum 20 in all elements).

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
