Overview

This programme allows you to develop a broad-based education in Life Sciences related to medicine. At the end of your first year of study, you may transfer into one of the Honours Schools of Biochemistry, Genetics, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Microbiology, Tropical Disease Biology, Physiology or Pharmacology, and graduate with a degree in that subject. Alternatively, you may wish to keep a broad interest in biological and medical sciences open in Year Three and then graduate with a degree in Biological and Medical Sciences. You can therefore take advantage of all the biological specialities that are unique to the University of Liverpool.

The aim of this integrated programme is to make you an expert in one particular field and also give you the ability to cross discipline boundaries. This is highly attractive to prospective employers. This programme is particularly suitable if you are intending to apply eventually for graduate entry into Medical, Veterinary or Dental Schools.

You will select modules from the Life Sciences programme depending on your intended Honours programme. The structure of the Honours year varies but generally consists of specialised lecture modules, workshops and a research project. For more details please refer to the individual sections covering the various programmes.

Career opportunities

As a Life Sciences graduate from the University of Liverpool, you will have a good set of career options ahead of you. For those committed to a career as a research scientist, further study for a higher degree (MBiolSci, MSc, MRes, MPhil or PhD) at the University of Liverpool or elsewhere is the normal route.

In the public sector, Life Sciences graduates are in demand in research institutes, government departments, the National Health Service, forensic science and the Environment Agency. Commercial sectors that actively recruit graduates from the Life Sciences include the pharmaceutical, food, biotechnology, water and agriculture industries.

There is also an increasing demand for life scientists to contribute to the public understanding of science as journalists and information/liaison officers, in view of the ethical and environmental issues that arise, for example, by developments in molecular biology and biotechnology.

A postgraduate qualification (PGCE) for entry into the teaching profession is also an option, with significant financial inducements provided to meet the current demand for science teachers. In addition to all of the opportunities for graduates in general, including careers outside of biology(such as management, accountancy and human resources), where the skills you have obtained in our degree programmes will be of considerable benefit, our degree programmes are also popular routes to postgraduate Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science.
