Our BSc Developmental Biology with Industrial/Professional Experience course will enable you to gain experience of the workplace on a year-long placement during your degree, making you more attractive to potential employers after graduation.
You will learn how the single cell formed at fertilisation forms an embryo and then a fully formed adult organism, covering multiple disciplines such as genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, anatomy, physiology and computer modelling.
You will also learn how developmental biology is having a significant impact on our understanding of evolution and modern medicine, including the treatment of birth defects, infertility and cancer in humans, particularly through stem cells.
In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to go on a placement with one of our more than 100 partner organisations in the UK or abroad.
Placements range from research project work to roles in education, the biotechnology industry and science communication.
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.
**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 between most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later.
