Course summary

About the course

From developing effective vaccines to bringing about advances in DNA forensics, molecular and cellular biology has been behind many modern scientific breakthroughs. If you have a passion for biology, an enquiring mind and you’re looking for an accredited course with an emphasis on providing experience in a research setting, then this could be the right choice for you.

  • This course has advanced accreditation by the Royal Society of Biology.
  • This course follows the same framework as our Biology (Molecular and Cellular) degree. Where it differs is you'll spend your third year work placement in a research setting.
  • You’ll be able to get a well-rounded introduction to biological sciences. Covering topics across biochemistry, genetics and cell biology, you’ll have the chance to build your understanding of the molecular explanations for life processes. As you progress, you’ll get to delve deeper into the subjects you’re interested in by choosing from a list of optional modules. It’s all designed to help you stand out from the crowd and boost your employability once you graduate.
  • You’ll be taught by academics with doctoral-level expertise in their subject areas through a combination of lectures, in-depth tutorials and sessions in our modern biological sciences labs. Here, you’ll have the chance to use scientific instrumentation and develop invaluable practical skills.
  • As a student on this course you’ll be able to apply for undergraduate membership of the Biochemical Society and The Physiological Society (UK). You’ll also be eligible for student affiliate membership of the Royal Society of Biology and upon successful graduation be eligible to apply for one year associate membership, this can help open up networks at a crucial time when applying for jobs.
