Course Summary:
This is for you if... you are interested in understanding how the human body works, ranging from detailed cellular mechanisms through to how drugs interact with receptors to affect various physiological processes.
Modules:
At the University of Leicester, our Biological Sciences degrees are actually seven degrees in one. You can apply for this degree in Biological Sciences (Physiology and Pharmacology) or any of the five specialist degrees listed below - or a general degree in Biological Sciences. Whichever degree you choose, your first year will be the same and you will have the same choice of modules in your second year and again in your final year. Selecting particular modules in your second and final years will steer you towards one of our specialist degrees (which doesn't have to be the one you originally applied for). Or you can make your own selection of modules in those years and graduate with the broad knowledge that comes from a non-specialised degree.

My teachers at Leicester were incredible, offering a really dynamic, interesting course with loads of content, contact hours and plenty of opportunity to talk to them about any problems or concerns I had. They seriously made the uni experience so much easier for me! The uni itself is great too – the halls were really high quality, the Union has a load of events on as well as cheap coffee and a great place to hang out with your mates. The whole campus is really inviting and comfy, and everyone here was friendly and welcoming! I loved it here!

    I really love this university - I'm very comfortable while I'm there and I've made a lot of friends through university societies. The teaching is good - largely because you can tell everyone genuinely cares about what they're teaching you, and this is also shown with the feedback you're given. I also think Leicester is a good town to be at uni at in general - it's cheap, constantly improving, and pretty (especially the student areas).

    Although the course isn't as great as I imagined it to be I love the city and I've enjoyed living in Leicester very much.
