If you enjoy human biology and understanding how the body works in both healthy and disease conditions, Biomedical Science is an excellent degree choice for you. There is an emphasis for our students to demonstrate competency in laboratory techniques and apply their knowledge to real-life situations. Key to this approach is our use of frequent and applied supported learning opportunities to develop theoretical, analytical and practical skills.
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.
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 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.
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). 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.
We look forward to welcoming you to York St John University to begin your scientific career.
Biomedical Science laboratories
Our state of the art Biomedical Science laboratories include teaching and research space with brand new and high specification equipment to support analysis of biochemistry, histopathology and microbiology samples. We have cell culture facilities and cell cytometry plus a wide variety of molecular biology equipment too. Have a look for yourself in this tour of our Laboratory.
You will study a range of scientific core subjects including Biology, Physiology and Biochemistry to enable you to understand the biological and chemical processes that sustain life. You will then progress to explore the biology of disease through consideration of a range of human disorders, disease processes and associated investigation.
Throughout the programme, you will develop Biomedical Science specific knowledge in the areas of Cellular Pathology, Clinical Biochemistry, Clinical Immunology, Haematology and Medical Microbiology.
Further information on this course is available in the programme specification. Please note that the programme specification relates to course content that is currently being studied by students at the University. For new programmes, the programme specification will be made available online prior to the start of the course.
York St John University works hard to create an inclusive environment for all our students. We offer a range of learning support services to assist students throughout their studies.
Teaching & Assessment
The Biomedical Science programme contains modules which build in complexity as you progress through the programme. Modules studied in Year One consider the normal physiological state of the human body and how it responds to disease. These disease states are explored in more detail in Years Two and Three of the programme. Specific subject areas including physiology, microbiology, biochemistry, genetics and immunology are explored and the changes that happen at the organ level, cellular level and molecular level are all studied in detail.
Fees and funding
To study for an undergraduate degree with us, you will need to pay tuition fees for your course. How much you pay will depend on whether you're a UK & EU student or an international (non-EU) student. Tuition fees are charged for each year of your course.
