Our Biomedical Science programme at York St John University allows you to study the causes of human diseases and discover the effects of these diseases at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. You will study human biology in both normal and disease states, then investigate the processes involved in diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. You will have a broad-based scientific education coupled with relevant and current technical laboratory skills. In addition, you will develop discipline specific skills, research skills and personal transferable skills to prepare you for a range of careers after graduation. Our programme is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the professional body for Biomedical Scientists. Following successful completion of your IBMS Portfolio of Competence, you may register as a Biomedical Scientist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Studying Biomedical Science here gives you an excellent experience of learning in a small cohort of students (below 50 per year), in a student-centred environment in the heart of the beautiful city of York. You can take advantage of our purpose built laboratories that have been completed in 2014 /2015 and will host practical classes for 15-20 students. The laboratories have been furnished with contemporary and high specification laboratory equipment for you to use throughout your studies. In addition to regular practical classes, you will be supported by open learning opportunities to perfect your academic skills and laboratory techniques. We will provide a supportive and structured environment in which you will develop the independent study skills required for lifelong learning.
