    Course Summary

    University of Stirling’s BSc (with honours) in Cell Biology could help you understand the cause of many diseases (with an eye towards creating or adapting treatments for them), explore aging and its causes, understand the process of protecting and improving food crops, create new sources of biologically derived fuels, or a host of other career-based goals.

    This program is intended to give students the advanced support and instruction they will need to prepare for the next step in a career in medicine, biotech or biology, or to explore the possibility of a career in academic research. In addition, you’ll have work placement opportunities to ensure that you have the real world field and laboratory skills today’s employers demand.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
