Biological sciences

The field of biological sciences is at the forefront of a new era in which we have the opportunity to find pioneering ways to address individual, regional and global issues through science. You will study everything from the smallest molecules and organelles, to organisms and entire ecosystems through an exciting new lens in order to address real-world problems.

Why choose this subject area?

  • learn in our state-of-the-art Science Building that offers excellent research, simulation and learning spaces
  • we deliver research-informed teaching by staff with expertise across academic research, the NHS and industry
  • opportunities to undertake work placements with leading companies, research institutions and organisations, including GlaxoSmithKline, Guy's Hospital and the Medical Research Council
'The University of Hertfordshire stood out for its Biomedical Science course because of the advantage of an IBMS accredited degree taught by engaging staff across lectures and practicals with state of the art facilities. I also had the opportunity to gain relevant experience in the field I wish to pursue through a placement year. I now feel more confident in striving for my career aspirations from the theoretical, practical and employable skills I have developed.'
