Study biology and forensic science

We're ranked No.1 in London for biosciences (Guardian league table 2021) and our forensic science course received 100 per cent overall student satisfaction (National Student Survey 2020).

Our biological science courses cover a diverse range of subjects and you have the option to choose to study human, medical or genetics and molecular biology depending on your interests. You'll develop extensive practical skills using our high-tech equipment, labs and facilities, which are designed to give you the experience of working in industry standard settings.

Our forensic science students have access to our scene of the crime house, which contains mock crime scenes including burglary, arson, assault and sexual crime. This allows our students to gain real-world practical experience using both specialist equipment and precise techniques to obtain and preserve samples and evidence from the scene of a crime.

Our courses are accredited by the Chartered Society of Forensic Scientists (CSFC) or the Royal Society of Biology (RSB).

Many of our courses have an integrated foundation year or the option to undertake a placement year. Click on the course you're interested in below to find out more.
