You will have the chance to explore a broad range of subjects in your first year across all areas of biology, including genetics, biotechnology, evolutionary biology, microbiology and ecology. Then, later, you can tailor your course to your own interests, or specialise in cell biology or biology with science communication. Benefit from our established research links throughout the UK and beyond, as we help you in identifying and competing for exciting industrial opportunities. These might be in large pharmaceutical companies, small biotechnology laboratories, hospitals or research institutes. During your year-long placement you will be supported by both an industrial supervisor and a mentor from the University. This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology.
