    Course Summary

    The University of Westminster’s BSc degree in Biological Sciences is perfect for any student who wants to turn a keen interest in the understanding of life and life processes into a rewarding commercial, industrial or academic career.

    This course is designed with flexibility in mind. You’ll learn about human biology, the applied biosciences, molecular biology and the life sciences generally, and can also access specialist content designed to impart the very latest discoveries in the biological sciences and show you how to apply them to pharmacology, the urban environment, medicine and genetics, or to the myriad challenges the world faces today.

    The four degree routes supported in this program include:

    • Molecular Science
    • Environmental Biology and Microbiology
    • Human Biology
    • A Hybrid approach, combining elements of all three

    No matter which pathway you choose, you’ll explore not just cutting edge biological science, but ways to apply what you’ve learned to challenges facing industry, individuals, or the plant as a whole.

    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.

    Learning & Teaching

    The University of Westminster has developed a detailed Learning and Teaching Strategy which was designed to dovetail with their 2020 Strategy. Essentially, their goal is to ensure that every degree program they offer includes a strong focus on the employability of their graduates. Each should turn out highly skilled, effective practitioners and professionals who can apply a global perspective to their specialty and its place in an ever shifting economy.

    Career Possiblities

    Many graduates of this program progress to an MSc program and eventually to PhD level programs. Others go directly into work, in teaching, the pharmaceutical industry, forensics, biomedical research, medicine or healthcare management. However, you’ll have the transferrable skills to do nearly anything.

    Careers support – during your studies and well after graduation, you’ll have access to Westminster’s award winning Career Development Centre. They can help you find roles during your studies and build your professional skills.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 3 year BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned 3 A Levels at BBC or higher, but other qualifications are also accepted. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test such as the IELTS.
