What is the difference between these two programs at YORK?

Also, does York have a lot of research opportunities?

I think biomed is about humans more and biology is more general including animals and plants as well as humans.

Hey, basically biomedical science approaches biology in a more medical way. Your core courses would include things like physiology, endocrinology, urinology..etc. Whereas in a biology program you have a wide spectrum of courses to choose from such as life strategies of plants, mammalian physiology,ecology..etc

First year is usually the same but in the upper years that will be the main difference. Good luck!
