York University launches new biomedical degree
YORK University is launching a new biomedical sciences degree focusing on the science underpinning medicine.
Offered jointly by the Department of Biology and the Hull York Medical School (HYMS), with contributions from the Departments of Health Sciences and Psychology, the new degree will prepare students for a career in biomedical research and other careers related to the fight against disease.
The broad curriculum in health-related science and research will include neuroscience, cancer biology, immunology and infection, population health, and cognitive psychology. The launch of the BSc Biomedical Sciences degree at York in September 2014 will coincide with the opening of a new building housing high-tech teaching laboratories and a 120 seat computer room.
Students will also benefit from small group tutorial teaching and an extended final year project designed to equip them with research and transferable skills.
There are 40 places available for 2014 entry. As well as a three-year undergraduate degree, there will be an optional four-year degree with a year in industry.
