Question above. Especially biology degrees? Best in terms of good facilities, good courses with lots of optional modules.

University of Edinburgh/University of Glasgow both have excellent reputations and facilities for STEM subjects, and their course structures tend to allow for a lot of elective modules.

Manchester is quite flexible, all biosciences have the same first year and you can switch between any of them

Depends on what area of biosciences you're interested in; it's a very broad range. Southampton and Bangor have very strong marine biology programmes for example, while Dundee have a notable anatomy department which as well as a degree unto itself, contributes to biomedical sciences and anthropology degrees there I believe.

The biosciences represent a very broad range of courses so it's hard to generalise...what area(s) of the biosciences are you interested in - human and biomedical sciences, fundamental biomolecular science, organismal and/or ecological biology, etc?

Just a biology degree.I am not fond of cellular and molecular biology.I prefer human biology and ecology.
