From developing effective vaccines to bringing about advances in DNA forensics, molecular and cellular biology has been behind many modern scientific breakthroughs. If you have a passion for biology, an enquiring mind and you’re looking for an accredited course with an emphasis on providing experience in a research setting, then this could be the right choice for you. This course follows the same framework as our Biology (Molecular and Cellular) degree. Where it differs is that this version of the course has Advanced Accreditation by the Royal Society of Biology. You third year work placement will be in a research setting and on successful completion of the degree you'll be eligible to apply for Associate Membership of the Royal Society of Biology (AMRSB).* On the Biology (Molecular and Cellular) with Research Placement BSc(Hons) course you’ll be able to get a well-rounded introduction to biological sciences. Covering topics across biochemistry, genetics and cell biology, you’ll have the chance to build your understanding of the molecular explanations for life processes. As you progress, you’ll get to delve deeper into the subjects you’re interested in by choosing from a list of optional modules. It’s all designed to help you stand out from the crowd and boost your employability once you graduate. During the course, you’ll be taught by academics with doctoral-level expertise in their subject areas through a combination of lectures, in-depth tutorials and sessions in our modern biological sciences labs. Here, you’ll have the chance to use scientific instrumentation and develop invaluable practical skills. As a student on the course you'll be eligible for undergraduate Biochemical Society and the Physiological Society (UK).
