All programmes are available with either an optional Year in Industry or Year in Europe.

‌Degree accreditation 

Royal Society of Biology

In recognition of our academic excellence and commitment to developing graduate employability skills, we have now received Accreditation or Advanced Accreditation by the Royal Society of Biology (RSB) for all of the degree programmes we offer (Biology and specialist degrees, Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences).  The RSB were keen to highlight our commitment to small group teaching through our tutorial system, as well as our commitment and support for students’ research skills development and project work.

Students graduating from one of these degree programmes will be able to state that they have a degree accredited by the Royal Society of Biology, and they will be eligible to attain qualification as a chartered biologist (CBiol) with one year’s further practice (as opposed to three years practice for non-accredited programmes UK-wide).
