Course structure

This course provides students with an intellectually stimulating education in modern molecular, cellular and systems biology and neuroscience. 

Admissions selection process

We base our short-listing decisions on academic record (GCSE performance) and BMAT score. When reaching our decisions, we are careful to take note of any relevant information such as disrupted education or illness that might have disadvantaged an applicant.

Please note that the disruption to GCSE examinations in the summer of 2020 may necessitate modification to the shortlisting algorithm normally applied.
