Biosciences and medicine

The biosciences help us to understand fundamental life processes, from the behaviour of single cells to entire ecosystems. There’s always something new to discover in this broad area of science. As a biosciences student, you’ll investigate life in all its forms and gain skills that could transform and improve lives.

By joining us at Surrey you will:

  • Have access to our £10 million Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory, so you can gain practical experience valued by a wide range of employers
  • Learn from lecturers who are active researchers in antimicrobial resistance, biotechnology, clinical bacteriology, systems biology, virology and much more
  • Study on highly ranked courses such as, 9th in the UK for animal science and 3rd in the UK for food science in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.
  • Have great graduate prospects - 97 per cent of our undergraduate biosciences and medicine graduates are in employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes survey 2020, HESA).
