Biosciences at Birmingham

As one of the top biology schools in the UK, our teaching and research covers the entire spectrum of cutting-edge biosciences – from molecules and cells to whole organisms and ecosystems.


Consistently ranking in the top 5 for graduate prospects in the UK (The Complete University Guide 2017) and a 94 per cent employability rate (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education 2014-15) evidence the strong employability focus of our Biosciences programmes.

Our overall student satisfaction rate of up to 100 per cent (National Student Survey 2016) demonstrates the high level of teaching and support available across our Biosciences programmes. 

We are one of the only universities to have Royal Society of Biology accreditation for both our BSc and MSci programmes.
