University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
This exciting course will provide graduates with both theoretical and applied knowledge of current fields in bioscience.
During this course, there will be a particular focus on the application of knowledge and the role of bioscience in modern society. Our course will consider the interaction of biological systems on multiple levels – from molecular biology to whole organism biology within the context of global ecosystems. It will allow graduates to develop the skills to apply concepts in bioscience to solving practical problems. Theoretical knowledge will be reinforced and supplemented with a strong applied and practical focus.
