Our BSc Cell Biology with a Modern Language course will enable you to develop your language skills while learning about 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. We offer French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin for the language component of the course, which includes a year abroad on a research placement. 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. **Connect with other languages students** Learn alongside other students taking a variety of language degrees at the University, giving you the opportunity to practice your skills with your fellow students and make new friends. **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 away from this course to most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later. You can only transfer onto it if you have completed the required language units in Year 1.
