    Imperial Biological Sciences vs Cambridge BioNatsci vs Oxford Biological Sciences Course

    Career? Prospect for postgrad studies?
    Opinion?
    Oxbridge generally seen as slightly better as Imperial.

    Cambridge BioNatSci would probably have you studying chemistry along with biology - assume it to be equal with Oxford for all intensive purposes

    Where do you study out of curiosity? Any personal (or comparative) experiences?

    Haha, I realise I didn't answer your OP properly

    Career will be identical, in fact Imperial grads make more than Oxbridge grads

    PG research will be identical - Imperial also has links abroad with MIT, CMU and Georgia Tech, along with an alliance with Caltech. This lets you do some summer research placements at MIT, or spend a year there if your marks are high enough. PG offers is about research in the summer time and high degree marks basically - ECs and Grades like most things. Obviously Oxbridge doesnt limit you anywhere either

    It's prestige and tutorials Oxbridge has - as I've said, the prestige doesn't stop you earning more or going to top unis for research, and eminent scientists from everywhere have emerged without tutorial teaching.

    Tutorial teaching would be more effective if the terms weren't so short - I feel like it's necessary for them to grasp the material since everything is clunked together
