4.1 Mode of study: Full-time (FT).
4.2 Programme requirements: The aims and objectives of the scheme are as follows:
(i) to develop students' knowledge of biological and medical sciences in order that they may analyse and understand the basis of human disease;
(ii) to familiarise students with the principles and evolution of disease processes and their aetiology;
(iii) to promote critical awareness of the methods by which disease processes are investigated and monitored;
(iv) to provide students with the personal skills and professional perspective to enable them to be effective in the application of biomedical sciences; and,
(v) to meet the requirements of the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) for graduate membership and the Council for Professions Supplementary to Medicine (CPSM) for subsequent State Registration.

8. INFORMATION ON THE NATIONAL HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEM

General overview of the education system: A majority of students studying at the 130 universities in the UK have completed 7 years of secondary education, including GCEs or GCSEs and A level subjects. Since 1994 a new secondary qualification, the General National Vocational Qualification (GNVQ) Advanced has been introduced as a vocational Advanced level award. Therefore, entry for 'Home' undergraduates domiciled in the UK is based largely on public examination performance, through applications processed by UCAS for FT undergraduate study. The participation rate in HE is 30% of the population.
Description of the national higher education awards structure: The 3 year honours degree is the most common format for study at HE level. The principal objective of most University education at first degree or undergraduate level is still predominantly to provide a general training of the mind and to promote a critical, objective and constructive approach, so that the graduate can apply his or her intellect to new problems relying on broad principles and approaches.
A majority of courses are modularised or unitised within a credit accumulation framework. External examiners with current subject specialism who are peers drawn from academic life and professional practice are appointed for each course to attest to the fairness and consistency of the assessment processes independently of the internal assessment team.
Further & Higher Education Colleges increasingly provide Access and Foundation courses to prepare students for progression to Level 1 honours degree work, as well as delivering Edexcel BTEC Higher National Certificate and Diploma courses validated by universities and the Business & Technology Education Council (BTEC). On successful completion of first degree work students may progress to taught postgraduate courses designated as Masters level, and subsequently apply to register for independent research at M.Phil/PhD (Master or Doctor of Philosophy) level. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes are provided on a FT and PT basis throughout the calendar year, mainly by the new post-1992 universities.
