Biosciences Undergraduate courses

We offer two core Biosciences degrees (Biochemistry and Biological Sciences) - with the option to add specialist labels in a wide range of areas based on modules taken such as Genetics, Microbiology and Infection, and Zoology. Additionally, we also have our interdisciplinary Human Sciences course, exploring what makes us human across biology, psychology and our behaviours.
