Our four-year Cellular and Molecular Biology MBiol Honours degree is very similar in content to our BSc but includes a year of Masters-level study, which offers significant research experience. You focus on biomolecules, organelles and cells, and how they all contribute to the function of organisms as a whole.
Including Biology and normally another science-related subject from: Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Geography, Psychology, Environmental Science or Geology. General Studies is excluded. Chemistry is preferred at A or AS level, but not essential. For Biology, Chemistry and Physics A levels, we require a pass in the practical element. GCSE Mathematics minimum grade B or 6 if not offered at A or AS level.
Including two science subjects. Advanced Higher Biology and another science subject normally required. Acceptable science subjects are: Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics, Geography, Psychology. Higher Grade Chemistry desirable. Mathematics required at National 5, minimum grade B (or grade 2 Standard Grade or Intermediate 2 equivalent) if not offered at Higher Grade.Scottish qualifications can be taken in more than one sitting.
