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’ll have access to our £10m Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory, so you can gain practical experience valued by a wide range of employers. 
  • You’ll learn from lecturers who are active researchers in antimicrobial resistance, biotechnology, clinical bacteriology, systems biology, virology and much more. 
  • You’ll have great graduate prospects - 97% of our undergraduate biosciences and medicine graduates are in employment or further study (Graduate Outcomes survey 2020, HESA).
