In your first year you will gain a broad understanding of the biology of normal and cancerous cells. In addition to studying the immune system, you will take pathology, microbiology and biochemistry units.
In the second year you will study the cellular and molecular basis of cancer and its therapy, as well as autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes and arthritis, and human cancers caused by viruses, such as papilloma and hepatitis B. You will take molecular genetics and an optional unit, possibly anatomy, biochemistry or pharmacology, from a selection offered by other schools.
All practical teaching in years one and two is supported by the eBiolabs dynamic laboratory manual.
In the final year you will undertake a research project or scientific dissertation, working in a research group in our Biomedical Sciences Building or in one of the surrounding hospitals. Your work may even be published in scientific literature.
A four-year BSc Cancer Biology and Immunology with Study in Industry is available by transfer after securing a placement during your second year.

Application deadline details:
Bristol’s great if you don’t really fancy concrete and a bustling metropolis – it’s a city uni with leafy streets, loads of independent shops and an intimate, community vibe. The city is kind of expensive, but if you budget properly you can stretch your loan out to have a great time here. There are loads of things to do in town, with a hectic nightlife and a great dubstep/drum and bass scene! The Uni is amazing too, with great facilities (the free bus onto campus is very helpful), and amazing tutors who were really inspiring and helpful.
