Biological Sciences Degrees and Masters

Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Biological Sciences offer the hands-on practical learning required to give you true insight into life as a scientist.

Our Human Bioscience course aims to further develop your understanding of the human body at the tissue, cell and molecular level. Our biomedical science degree provides the foundation for graduate entry into medicine, dentistry or the more recently established Physician Associate (PA) programme for clinical practice within the NHS.

While our Biology courses cover a broad range of topics from biodiversity and conservation management to genetics; molecular biology to human physiology and the role of the immune system.

You’ll learn in industry-standard laboratories designed to equip you with the practical knowledge and experience needed for a career in science.

Our range of Biological Sciences courses, undergraduate and postgraduate, are as follows:

Undergraduate Biological Sciences Programmes

Biology at the University of Northampton is split into three stages. In the first stage you’ll develop a broad range of Biology skills, including biodiversity, conservation management, genetics, molecular biology, human physiology and the role of the immune system. In the second and third stages you’ll have the opportunity to specialise; choosing from a range of biological concepts, including medical genetics, biodiversity, immunology and restoration ecology.

The BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree is designed to equip you with a fundamental understanding of how science underpins the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease. The degree reflects both the theoretical knowledge and applied clinical laboratory skills required to be a biomedical scientist.

Our Human Bioscience course aims to further develop your understanding of the human body at the tissue, cell and molecular level. You will investigate the consequences that occur, when normal physiological processes go wrong, and explore the underlying mechanisms that underpin important human diseases.

Postgraduate Biological Sciences Programmes

The MSc Molecular Bioscience has two distinct and separate pathways of study allowing you to focus on Molecular Medicine or Genetics and Genomic. You can elect to take study topics in your chosen area of interest and it allows you to design your Master’s degree to meet your career aspirations.
