Undergraduate study in the School of Biosciences

We offer three core Biosciences degrees with the option to specialise in a wide range of areas such as Genetics, Medical Biochemistry, Zoology or Biotechnology.

Many of our courses offer you the opportunity to add something extra to your degree, if you are interested in a research career have a look at our Undergraduate Masters programmes, or would you prefer to get some work experience during your degree. If you have a flair for languages why not investigate our "with study in continental Europe" courses.
