Undergraduate Study

Our degree programme reflects modern bioscience in being research-led.

In covering the diversity of the subject both in scale, from the molecular level to entire ecosystems, and in concept, from the intersections of biology with chemistry and physics to links with medicine and social sciences. We offer both a flexible three-year degree programme in Biological Sciences (BSc), with the option of industrial placement; and a four-year programme leading to a Masters Degree in Biosciences (MBiol).
