About the Course

This exciting new programme offers students the opportunity to examine the complexity and diversity of life processes through the study of a range of modules including biotechnology, genetics and microbiology. It explores cutting edge developments including gene cloning, stem cell research regenerative medicine and cell based therapeutics. Such modules contribute to the programme’s strong vocational focus and the course provides an excellent starting point for continued study and research at higher levels and is particularly suited to students interested in an interdisciplinary approach to biological sciences.

The first year of study will equip students with foundation knowledge and skills whilst encouraging the application of knowledge through work-based experiences.  During the second year of study, students are challenged by more independent learning, applying further theoretical aspects to their chosen area with modules in Medical Physics, Practical Skills for Forensic Scientists and Spectroscopy.

Please note this course is subject to validation.
