The three year accredited Biomedical Science BSc programme examines the causes of human diseases and their effects at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. York St John University students have investigated the biological processes involved in healthy individuals, along with diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.
Rebecca Hand, who achieved a first class degree in Biomedical Science at York St John University, said: “I was ecstatic to learn I had been given the opportunity to study Biomedical Science at York St John. Being an IBMS accredited degree I was taught the appropriate subjects needed if I decided to pursue a career as a Biomedical Scientist. As a student I was also offered the opportunity to complete my portfolio within a year hospital placement.”
In addition to being awarded final year dissertation prize, Rebecca is currently studying a Masters degree in Biology and Control of Parasites and Disease Vectors at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Rebecca added: “My time at York St John was nothing but exceptional – whether it be making friends for life, gaining valuable experience, or developing myself as an individual - I definitely made the right decision when choosing this as my university.”
The Biomedical programme at York St John University is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the professional body for Biomedical Scientists. The course has been running for 3 years and has achieved 100% student satisfaction in the National Student Survey 2018.
