We have updated our 'Modules' tab and removed the following 'Important Information' box following University approval.
We are making some minor changes to the third year of all our Life Sciences courses. These changes to some core and optional modules are currently undergoing approval through the University’s rigorous academic process. As modules are confirmed, they will be included in the module list on this webpage. It is therefore very important that you check this webpage for the latest information before you apply and prior to accepting an offer.
We have also added the following module descriptions to the Year Three core modules:
By considering the important cellular components of the central nervous system this modules illustrates current knowledge of how these determine and contribute to the integrative function of the nervous system.
Modern Approaches to Human Disease
On this module, you will engage with two major themes in modern medicine: evidence-based medicine and medical ethnics. You will achieve this through in-depth study of the medical specialities of reproductive medicine, renal medicine and central nervous system (CNS) medicine.

We have updated the course summary at the top of the course page.
Life Sciences provides a wide range of biology-focused degree courses. Advances in new technologies, including genomics and integrative biology, have made this varied discipline more exciting than ever.
We teach and research the processes of life from the molecular, right through to whole animal and the environment, to understand the cellular, molecular, and physiological interactions that are fundamental to biology and medicine.
This course has received interim accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology (RSB), and is pending full advanced accreditation upon graduation of the first cohort.
Neuroscience is about understanding the most complex organ in the body – the brain. Of the four degree courses taught by the School of Life Sciences, this is our most specialised degree. This course will appeal to those who have a strong interest in how the brain and central nervous system works, neurological diseases and treatments.
