Average intake: 2

  • The new Biomedical Sciences degree has been successfully running at St John's since October 2011.
  • In addition to University teaching, students typically have 2-3 tutorials per week within College. These tutorials are an opportunity to clarify and delve deeper into topics covered by University teaching (lectures, seminars and practicals) and students usually find this learning environment both stimulating and rewarding. The teaching is principally carried out by College tutors, all of whom are active researchers and are passionate about teaching.
  • The course is interdisciplinary in nature, with a number of contributing subjects including Biochemistry, Experimental Psychology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Physiology, Anatomy, Genetics and Psychiatry. At St John’s we are extremely well-placed to offer this new course as we have tutors in all of these key subject areas.
  • Our students will carry out a research project within the University laboratories, which are ranked as some of the best in the world for biomedicine.
  • St John's offers one of the most generous academic grants of any colleges to its students.
  • Students are automatically members of College subject societies such as Douglas or Bryant Society, which hosts a termly speaker dinner speaker to promote the discussion of subject issues and interaction between the various student years.
