I am wondering what the biological science undergraduate degree at the university of Surrey is like? I'm thinking of applying but I don't know if the department is very big or well established. I am also looking at the university of York which has a very big department of biology and is very well regarded but I don't know which of these uni's to put as my first choice?

Have you come across uni connect? It's a good way of finding other who are looking to do the same course as you

I've found a few other peeps that are applying At both Surrey and York.

Hope this helps!

Hi Matt. Our Biological Sciences degree will give you a broad background in Biology and Biological Sciences but you will also be able to specialise in a specific area of interest in the final year.
The programme also includes a professional training placement in year 3. Although our open days have now finished you can come along to one of our campus tours on a Wednesday to find out abit more about the campus and if you drop an email to [email protected] one of our recruitment team would be more than happy to talk to you in more detail about the course.

I could probably tell you a little more about the university itself as I'm actually a Surrey grad, although I didn't study biosciences Just drop me a message if you'd like to chat!

Just read this, would have replied before otherwise , I'm currently doing biomed, in my first year, which has a lot of the same modules as biological sciences.
This year, compulsory modules include cell biology, microbiology and a chemistry and maths unit. You also get a choice of one module out of a possible 2. These are done in the first semester. The compulsory modules in this semester are completed by all biosciences students and as such have over 300 people in the lecture theatre. I don't know how this compares to other unis but it seems like a lot to me . I can answer any questions you may have, or at least try, so don't feel afraid to ask if you want to know anything .
