    i'm thinking about applying there for 2010 too but as I'm not from UK i'm not very familiarized with the universities... i've checked that link too and the only thing that really concerns me about warwick is that it's not IBMS accredited. Is that importante if you want to do research?

    I applied to Warwick this year, I went on the open day and it was pretty good. The labs and the seminar was good, I think they said that they send the top students to do a year in industry with GSK in the second year. One problem I had was that the Biological science area is pretty isolated from the rest of the university.

    Accredited is only beneficial if you want to work for the NHS.. So no its not important if your looking to go into research.

    Btw, entry requiremnts for a levels are ABB/BBB..

    and btw, between warwick, birmingham and surrey which would be the best choice? The campus of warwick seems nicer but don't know about the course itself...

    well, you go around campus and meet people and you start talking to them and they're all really good and clever at what they do etc. then you meet bio people and they're not all there, a bit dim.

    I don't know about Birmingham, but I had to choose between Warwick and Surrey... the courses both looked fairly similar, but Surrey's was accredited. Also there's more independence in Warwick's course as in you can pick more modules that you want compared to Surrey, were i think you could pick 1or2 modules, the rest being compulsory.

    In the end there was little between the two and I could have gone either way, but Warwick's campus did it for me..

    As a student about to start studying Biological sciences at warwick, I can say this is strikingly accurate.
