Our courses

Our courses draw upon academic expertise in areas such as regenerative medicine, health, nutrition and physical activity. Our BSc Human Biology degree is unique in its consideration of the human, from molecule to population level and in its international perspective. The Biological Sciences degree is designed to develop your understanding of the processes underlying life and health in whole organisms, focusing particularly on humans.
