Course summary

This four-year MSci offers an additional year on top of the Biological Sciences BSc, which includes an extended research project in the fourth year, providing extra depth and knowledge which will particularly benefit those interested in further research. You will have the option to choose the MSci Biological Sciences (International Programme), which offers you the possibility to spend your third year abroad in Asia, Australia, Europe or the USA.

Your learning

This programme consists of lectures, seminars, tutorials, practicals, problem-based learning and extensive personal study. You will have the opportunity to take part in UCL's world-leading research from your first year onwards, either in the laboratory or studying animals and plants in their natural habitats.

Assessment

Initially you will be assessed primarily by end-of-year examinations, with a smaller component from practical reports or other coursework such as essays. As your programme progresses, research-based coursework exercises will become more important, culminating in your final-year project.

Careers

Biological Sciences can lead to a wide range of careers. There is key skills training embedded in our degrees (e.g., in statistics, computing and in giving presentations), which helps make you attractive to employers.

Many of our graduates choose to undertake further studies, aiming for a research career in a university or in industry. As well as careers in scientific fields, such as in the health service, conservation or the pharmaceutical industry, our graduates have also pursued further training or employment in management, teaching, accounting, the civil service and law.
