Applied Biosciences BSc (Hons)

Applied Biosciences is a unique and new degree which will prepare you for a job in Life Science and Biotechnology. This degree is for people who enjoy hands-on experiences in the lab, much more than in many other biological degrees. The many skills and techniques you will learn are co-designed with industrial partners so they are highly relevant in a future job.

The unique structure of the degree involves learning the basics in the first year, gaining project lab experience in the second and a professional work placement in the final year.
