Our BSc Molecular Biology with a Modern Language course will enable you to develop your language skills while studying the structure and function of biologically important molecules, giving you a range of theoretical knowledge and practical lab skills.
You will learn about DNA, RNA and proteins and the molecular events that govern cell function while exploring the relevant aspects of biochemistry, genetics and cell biology.
You will also find out how the completion of large genome projects has helped us to begin to understand the molecular basis of illnesses and use genetic manipulation in biotechnology to make valuable products including blood clotting factors, insulin and vaccines.
We offer French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin for the language component of the course, which includes a year abroad on a research placement.
Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future.
**Connect with other languages students**
Learn alongside other students taking a variety of language degrees at the University, giving you the opportunity to practice your skills with your fellow students and make new friends.
**Foundation year available**
You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our foundation course first.
**Flexibility to transfer between courses**
You can transfer away from this course to most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later. You can only transfer onto it if you have completed the required language units in Year 1.
