As new techniques for studying molecules and cells are rapidly increasing our understanding of living organisms, this is a very exciting time to study Biological Sciences.
Biological Sciences brings together subjects including genetics, biochemistry, microbiology and cell biology, giving you knowledge and skills vital in battling global challenges such as cancer, ageing and food security.
You'll develop both broad and specialist knowledge, with access to the latest discoveries at Leeds. Core modules will equip you with an understanding of human disease genomics, genetic engineering and cell signalling. You'll also specialise in one of four pathways: plants and agriculture; molecular medicine; infection and disease; or molecular zoology.

Leeds was an amazing experience, probably the best student city in the UK. There’s no better feeling than whiling away the summers in Hyde Park with a cider and some good mates, and the nightlife is incredible – so many different student nights on, and the taxis are dirt cheap. A great bonding experience for all is The Otley Run – a 21 strong pub crawl that takes you into the city and how I forged some of my best friendships. In terms of the Uni, my course was amazing – loads of detailed lectures, secondary materials and passionate lecturers.
So far, I've absolutely loved Leeds and the university. It's been a very easy and fun experience so far.

About 4 out of 5. I think the main reason I've not enjoyed myself to the fullest is being injured and ill (freshers flu is real), which in turn is making me miss home a bit. It also meant I had to stay in a lot of freshers and fell behind with some work. If I was well healthed, my university experience would have been a solid 5/5
