In our School we understand that your undergraduate degree is important for your success at finding a job in the future. We work hard to ensure that our degrees equip you with everything you need to start a fulfilling career in your chosen field.
You’ll get a thorough grounding in all the specialist scientific skills that the 21st century biologist needs. You’ll gain experience in making the most of sophisticated laboratory equipment and specialist software, learn how to collate, analyse and report on large datasets, and enhance your numerical, statistical and literacy skills.
We teach you more than science. We offer a “Transferable skills in Life Sciences” module in your first year, which gives you a strong foundation of oral and written communication skills, and planning, study, and research skills. You build on this work throughout the rest of your degree, as these skills feature in many of the modules you take over the following years.
On top of this we also have specialist modules tailored to the employability skills for each degree. These help you understand specific aspects of your professional development that you can refer to when it comes to applying for jobs and entering the world of work.
All this means that you’ll finish your degree with a strong set of complementary scientific and transferable skills, as well as organisational skills and experience of teamwork. These skills are in demand with employers across all sectors, giving you ample examples to mention in job applications and interviews.
