Metropolitan College is the first academic institution in Greece, offering an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences.
Biomedical scientists carry out the complex and diverse investigations required in modern hospital pathology laboratories. They provide the scientific information required for effective diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. To do this, they require an in depth knowledge of the causes of disease and the practical ways in which they can be investigated. This degree programme aims to provide this knowledge.
This programme is designed to give students the opportunity to:
The programme is based around the study of the biology of disease. All specialist areas of Biomedical Science are included in the programme, which is therefore broadly based and relatively non specialist.
• Cell Biology
• Cellular Processes
• Professional Practice
• Human Physiology
• Molecular Biology & Genetics
• Research Methods
• Biology of Disease
• Infection and Immunity
• Physiological Regulation
• Cellular Biochemistry
• Clinical Biochemistry
• Cell Pathology & Blood Disease

This IBMS (Institute of Biomedical Sciences) accredited programme provides the academic requirements to enable graduates to apply for registration as a biomedical scientist. They can also apply to become HCPC Registered and obtain their professional qualifications.
Many graduates go on to research degrees and to jobs in research institutes, industrial research laboratories, pathology laboratories, research in hospitals or pharmaceutical companies and in sales. Because the degree is broadly based, it is also an excellent qualification for a teaching career. Moreover, they may choose to continue their studies for a masters degree.
