Engineering (Biomedical) BEng

University College London

This exciting programme provides a grounding in the practical application of engineering principles and design concepts to healthcare technologies. It draws on the research strengths of UCL and its excellent links to local hospitals, and prepares graduates to work in a wide range of technology areas from imaging and diagnosis to monitoring and treatment.

Entry requirements

A levels

Mathematics and Physics required; grade A in Mathematics preferred.
English Language and Mathematics at grade C. For UK-based students, a grade C or equivalent in a foreign language (other than Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) is required. UCL provides opportunities to meet the foreign language requirement following enrolment, further details at:

IB Diploma

A score of 17-18 points in three higher level subjects, including Mathematics and Physics (grade 6 in Mathematics preferred), with no score lower than 5.

Undergraduate Preparatory Certificates

The Undergraduate Preparatory Certificates (UPCs) are intensive one-year foundation courses for international students of high academic potential who are aiming to gain access to undergraduate degree programmes at UCL and other top UK universities.

Typical UPC students will be high achievers in a 12-year school system which does not meet the standard required for direct entry to UCL.

English language requirements

If your education has not been conducted in the English language, you will be expected to demonstrate evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency. Information about the evidence required, acceptable qualifications and test providers can be found on our English language requirements page.

The English language level for this programme is: Standard

A variety of English language programmes are offered at the UCL Centre for Languages & International Education.

Degree benefits

  • Academic lectures are supported by practical problem-solving tasks which develop understanding of teamwork, the design process and communication.

  • We have close links to several major teaching hospitals and our staff work side-by-side with doctors and health professionals. Their expert knowledge will directly benefit your lectures and teaching sessions.

  • Most biomedical engineering classes are small (fewer than 35 students) providing you with an informal, interactive teaching environment in which you can easily raise questions. Our department scored highly (89%) for overall satisfaction in the 2016 National Student Survey).

  • The programme is highly interdisciplinary, drawing not only from the highly rated UCL Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering, but also from a range of engineering and science subjects across UCL Engineering.


We are seeking accreditation for both the BEng and MEng in Engineering (Biomedical) from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). We expect that both programmes will be CEng accredited and fulfil the educational requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer (though if you have the BEng you will also need an accredited MSc).
