Our BSc Cell Biology with Industrial/Professional Experience course will enable you to gain experience of the workplace on a year-long placement during your degree, making you more attractive to potential employers after graduation. The course will enable you to understand how our cells do what they need to do, from the molecular level through whole cells to tissues and organs. You will study aspects of biological sciences such as biochemistry and molecular biology to explore the structure and function of cells. You will also consider how cell diversity arises and how cells co-operate and communicate with each other in normal tissues and in developing embryos. In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to go on a placement with one of our more than 100 partner organisations in the UK or abroad. Placements range from research project work to roles in education, the biotechnology industry and science communication. Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future. **Foundation year available** You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our foundation course first. **Flexibility to transfer between courses** You can transfer between most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later.
