How to apply for a Biological Sciences degree.

All applications should be made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). There is lots of advice and guidance on the University's Undergraduate Study website on how to apply including making an application, our selection process, and what happens after you apply.

How to Apply

Degree Options in Biological Sciences

There are 14 different Biological Sciences degrees available to apply for through UCAS. You only need to apply for one, as the entrance requirements are the same for all programmes. If you are interested in Biological Sciences with Management (C1N1) please put this choice on your application to ensure you are automatically enrolled on the relevant compulsory business course.

If you know which subject specialisation you are interested in, you can choose that on your application. If you have no subject specialisation preference at this stage, choose Biological Sciences (C100). The only difference choosing a specific programme makes at this stage is when we are assigning students to a Personal Tutor. 

Students will meet with one of our academic members of staff regularly during their studies and if we know the area of Biological Sciences our students are interested in e.g. Zoology then we will assign them to someone who is doing research in that area.

Personal Tutor

Regardless of application choice, all students have the flexibility to change programmes within Biological Sciences provided the required courses have been passed.
