The human body is one of the most amazing things on earth. The desire to study biomedical science came from my school life when I was studying biology and was greatly fascinated by the biology of the human body. My goal in studying biomedical science is to gain a deeper understanding of the human body. I am willing to pursue a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science with International Foundation programme (Malvern House) at the University of East London. By studying this course, I will have an in-depth understanding of the basic study of the structure, properties, and reactions of biomedical science and it will help to understand the causes of the disease in depth. This Biomedical Science degree will open the door for me to learn more about the vast field of biology and the depth of its disciplines. Moreover, I believe that this course will help me demonstrate my academic and intellectual abilities.

I have seen the course modules, syllabus, and learning outcomes of the BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science with International Foundation programme at the University of East London this course is based on the study of biology which is important for developing new medicine for the treatment of current and unknown diseases. This course is designed to develop skills through to human disease, laboratory training experience, the study of specialist areas of biomedical science, and clinical training in the laboratory. This course teaching method includes lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, laboratory practicals, web learning, and guided reading. The course will cover four areas in the first year namely Essential Chemistry, Cell Biology, Biochemistry, and Human Anatomy and Physiology. Finishing in the second year will undoubtedly help my career towards potential. In the final year, I will study clinical infection and immunity as well as learn about the causes of disease. The assessment methods used across this course include opportunities for coursework, examinations, project work, group work, presentations, and laboratory practical work. Having the opportunity to study this course I am looking forward to improving my skills and knowledge. This course will help me gain an understanding of the biomedical science method and provide career opportunities through the techniques and skills used. After completing this course, I would like to join the reputed institutes of my country as a Biomedical Scientist or Clinical Research Associate to build my professional career. So, I believe this course will be suitable for my career planning and professional development objectives.

I completed my Secondary and Intermediate from the science groups respectively. While I studied in school and college, I was involved in various types of curriculum activities such as Attend Seminars and Workshops, Debating, Volunteering, Socializing, and Fund Rising. Since I am interested to expand my knowledge in biomedical science, I have come to the conclusion that I need a higher degree from abroad that will enrich my knowledge and skills. I think I should gain more knowledge in the field of Biomedical Science so I decided to continue my further studies with this course. It will help me develop a broader and more balanced understanding of basic Biomedical Science. In addition, I am eager to gain complete knowledge and skills from this course. Moreover, this course applies the standard method for understanding and evaluating risks and for working safely and solving problems with practical skills in the laboratory. So, I believe this course will be the right choice for me as I am looking for a successful career in this course.

By researching the university website I noticed that for my four-year programme the foundation year courses modules include Essential Skills for Higher Education (Mental Wealth), Essential Maths & ICT, Career & Professional Skills (Mental Wealth), Human Biology, Introduction to the Study of Cell, Chemistry of Life, Professional Practice in Science (Mental Wealth), Essential Chemistry, Cell Biology, Introduction to Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Fundamentals in Human Anatomy and Physiology, Fundamentals in Microbiology, Human Disease and Clinical Practice, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Infection and Immunity, Cellular Biochemistry, Haematology and Transfusion Science, Research and Career Development (Mental Wealth), Clinical Biochemistry, Medical Microbiology, Cellular Pathology, Clinical Immunology, Clinical Genetics, Research Project and Career Enhancement Portfolio (Mental Wealth). As a science student, studying these course modules would not be difficult for me. So, I hope my chosen course will make me better and further open doors for my profession.

I chose the UK for my higher studies because this country has had a great reputation for quality higher education since its inception. It is true that the UK is a well-known country and has huge popularity. In recent years, most reputed companies in Bangladesh are emphasizing hiring Bangladeshi graduates with degrees from abroad. Where the study environment in my country follows theoretical systems of education and no practical skills are gained. Academically the UK prepares students and provides soft skills that are useful for future careers. However, this university is better than others by offering the best career-oriented education and training and relatively low tuition fees. UK accommodation and living expenses are also reasonable. The affordable tuition fees attracted me the most. Furthermore, an academic degree from the UK is recognized and appreciated by employers around the world. This is why I chose the UK as my preferred destination and goal. According to a recent study of international graduation results in 2019 by iGraduate by Universities UK International 82% of overseas graduates believe their UK degree is beneficial for financial investment, and a similar number of graduates said they were satisfied or very satisfied with their careers. Approximately 83 % believe a UK degree helped them get a job. So, it will be a big achievement for me if I can study this course at the University of East London.

I like the University of East London because it is incredibly welcoming to international students and includes content and structure with a distinct focus on the international context and professional level. In addition, the University of East London is dedicated to supporting international students to develop the skills, emotional intelligence, and creativity needed to thrive in a constantly changing world and the competitive job market. Universities have invested heavily in their facilities to support students in order to create a physical and intellectual environment for learning. Also, the university has a reputation for teaching, research, and business partnerships. According to the working- age population, 91% of UEL graduates and postgraduates are in employment (DLHE 2017) compared with 70 percent of non-graduates. The university is ranked 801st in the QS World University Rankings by Top Universities. This course will help me take my knowledge and skills to the next level of Biomedical Science. So, if I get the chance to study this course at the University of East London I will never look back and it will be a great achievement for me.
