3 Reasons to Study Biosciences at the University of Birmingham


Hansong Ma, University of California, San Francisco "I feel very lucky that I picked the School of Biosciences for my Undergraduate study. I was introduced to various biological topics via a range of carefully designed courses which reinforced my interests and helped me to develop many essential skills. I also earned my PhD at the same school. The University of Birmingham served as a great foundation for my ongoing scientific career at the UCSF."

The Collaborative Teaching Laboratory is a brand new state-of-the-art facility designed to support the latest methods in laboratory teaching for STEM subjects.
