Course summary

Please note that due to COVID-19, this course will initially be delivered via a blended learning approach, which may include face-to-face learning in the classroom, remote learning off-campus and digital learning. When delivery is taking place on-campus, there will be reduced student numbers and physical distancing measures in place.

The BSc (Hons) Applied Biological Sciences degree offers interdisciplinary training in contemporary biological sciences, including animal and plant biology and biotechnology. There is a strong focus on the cellular and molecular aspects of biological science and the development of practical skills.

It will particularly appeal to those with a desire to pursue a career in the bioscience industries, within healthcare and biotechnology.

The degree is taught jointly at Forth Valley College (Falkirk Campus) and the University of Stirling and also receives input from employers across the Scottish life sciences community. The result is a programme which delivers highly skilled and work ready graduates.

Classes for the first two years will be delivered at Forth Valley College’s campus in Falkirk.

Students who are placed in University accommodation at Stirling should be aware that they will be required to travel from Stirling to Falkirk for the first two years of their studies and should budget for travel costs accordingly.
