Course summary

Biomedical Sciences is about understanding human health and human disease. We study these areas so that, ultimately, we can develop new therapeutic strategies and refine government policy to prolong life and improve the quality of people’s lives.

Biomedical Sciences at York will open your potential to become a future leading researcher, policymaker or administrator in biomedical sciences. You will learn how to distil and critique information in the face of ambiguity and complexity. You will learn how to critically assess information to gain a balanced understanding, how to develop and test scientific hypothesis and how to present your findings clearly and concisely to experts and non-experts alike. This degree will provide you with the skills required to tackle current and future challenges to human health.

The Integrated Masters course will allow you to use and further develop research and analytical skills in a cutting-edge research lab. This experience will provide you with a platform to launch a career as a research scientist.

Assessment

​You will be assessed via a mixture of closed exams and continuous assessment. Although you must perform to a satisfactory level, Stage 1 (which is your first year) does not count towards the final degree, which is determined by work in Stage 2 (25%), Stage 3 (37.5%) and Stage 4 (37.5%). If you undertake a year abroad or in industry this is marked bypass/fail.

Careers and skills

Studying Biomedical Sciences will develop your critical thinking and research skills and prepare you to be competitive for entry into relevant postgraduate degree programmes. The degree also provides suitable training for direct employment in health-related industries and services (e.g. NHS, pharmaceutical companies).

Transferable skills acquired on the course open other relevant careers including patent law, public health policy and education and scientific writing.
