Degree Courses



We offer the following undergraduate degrees in Life Sciences: 

We also contribute to the joint degree in Global Sustainable Development and the Warwick Medical School MSci in Integrated Science:

Choice and flexibility

Our degree courses are specially designed to provide choice and flexibility.

We recognise that your interest in particular aspects of biology may develop only when you are more familiar with the subject at university level.

A core syllabus is offered in the first year for all degree courses, providing the essential foundations in biology, biochemistry, genetics and chemistry. Everyone covers the same core modules in the first year meaning that it is often possible to transfer between the different degrees at the end of the first year.

An MBio degree will give additional skills to boost your employability, because it provides the academic and transferable skills desired by employers, for example in project management.

RSB accreditation

All of our undergraduate degrees are accredited by the Royal Society of Biology (RSB) and our MBio degrees hold advanced accreditation.

RSB accredited degrees undergo rigorous, independent assessment to ensure a solid academic foundation in biological knowledge and key skills and prepares graduates to address the needs of employers.

Our new Neuroscience degree has gained interim accreditation which should be awarded full advanced accreditation upon graduation of the first cohort.

RSB accredited degree

4-year MBio

Our four-year integrated Master's (MBio) courses provide an additional year of study focused on a substantial research project, either within the School or industry.

You can apply directly for the MBio courses and you are guaranteed a place on the BSc courses if you do not achieve MBio entry requirements but do achieve them for the BSc.

Alternatively, if you are a BSc student and you achieve 2:1 or above in your second year, you can apply for a transfer onto the related Master's course (transfers are subject to student numbers and, for international students, visa requirements). Progression requirements are in place for MBio students at the end of their second year, if requirements are not met then students move to a BSc degree.

Foundation Programme

A pre-university course that helps prepare you for study in the UK and helps you decide on future study.
With a guaranteed offer from the School of Life Sciences, the Warwick International Foundation Programme (Warwick IFP) is a fast-track 9-month pre-university course for international students.
