    BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science (Cardiac Physiology)


Those who study cardiac physiology work with those suspected or known to have heart disease. A cardiac physiologist’s work combines patient assessment and specialist equipment to obtain diagnostic data about heart structure and function. Cardiac physiology involves interpreting data to make an accurate diagnosis and to formulate reports that are reviewed by the health care team to enable appropriate management of the patient.


Candidates for cardiac physiology need to demonstrate a strong educational profile.

GCSE profiles need to include a minimum of 5 passes including Welsh/English Language, Mathematics and a Physical Science or Double Award Science at Grades A-C.

Candidates also require a minimum of: BBB at A2 level. At least one A2 level must be in Biology.

Alternative entry requirements

Access: Distinction and Merit profile against the rules of combination.


Welsh baccalaureate: Pass and either BB at A2 level (at least one A2 in biology) or DD at BTEC

Irish Leaving Certificate: 360

Additional requirements

Any offer of a place will require:

A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check (previously CRB check).

Salidas profesionales

Those who study cardiac physiology will encounter excellent prospects to work in NHS hospital practice as well as opportunities in research, education, management, Her Majesty’s Forces, governmental departments and the private sector.

This is an exciting and rapidly developing field that requires a high level of responsibility with many opportunities for specialist role extension following graduation.

Cardiac physiologists now perform some tasks that were previously the remit of doctors.

99% of healthcare science students from Swansea University are employed in graduate level jobs within six months of graduating.

Almost all of the previous graduates of the healthcare sciences have gone on to work in their chosen profession in the NHS, mainly in Wales but also in England. These students typically commence work in Band 5 Practitioner roles. Significant proportions of our graduates now work in Band 6 and Band 7 (specialist) roles.
