Course summary

Our biological sciences programme focuses on the molecular and cellular aspects of life sciences. It is an interdisciplinary degree, bringing together subjects such as cell biology, molecular genetics, microbiology, immunology and biochemistry.You will develop a broad knowledge base in biological sciences, with opportunities to specialise in areas that interest you, and learn from world-leading researchers in the field.If you aim to become a research scientist, our integrated Masters offers an additional year of specialist training to equip you for a PhD, or employment in this field.You will be able to make an impact with this degree as biological scientists are working to tackle many of the major global challenges such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, ageing, antibiotic resistance and sustainable food production.As new techniques for studying and manipulating molecules and cells (eg cryo-electron microscopy and gene editing) are rapidly increasing our understanding of living organisms, this is a very exciting time to study an undergraduate degree in biological sciences.**Course highlights:**- Choose one of the following four pathways to specialise in after your first year, from molecular medicine, infection and disease, genome biology and disease or plants and agriculture.- Weekly research-focused practical classes gives you extensive hands-on experience in the laboratory, with the option to experience working in a research lab in your final year.- Develop a range of transferable skills such as data analysis, interpretation and critical appraisal which will equip you for a wide range of career options when you graduate.- A wide choice of research-led advanced topic lectures in your final year cover specialist topics in cell and molecular biology, exposing you to the latest techniques and cutting edge research.
