The Biosciences academic team, part of the School of Science and Technology, has broad expertise. We scrutinise living systems in many ways from the molecular through cellular to ecosystem levels and we put our expertise to use in our research and in our curriculum. We positively influence collaborators and students alike, by emphasising high academic standards and meaningful cooperation between scientists in different disciplines.
Our in-depth research covers a diverse and dynamic range of specialisms. Both teaching and research in the biosciences team are supported by world-class facilities. Because of our ambitious research agenda and ongoing activities, students can expect to approach problems with the latest methods, including those used in industry.
Students work alongside our highly regarded bioscience academic teams who have had the impact of 100% of their Biomedical Science research recognised as world leading or internationally excellent. (REF 2014). Find out more
Many of our courses afford flexibility in the choice of specialisms and all provide the opportunity for a year-long work placement, giving our students valuable experience beyond the academy and enhancing their learning.
