Life Sciences courses in the UK

Introduction to Life Sciences

Life sciences cover a very wide range of subjects, with biology chief among them. This category also includes zoology, botany, bio-engineering and neuroscience. Many universities offer a more general life sciences degree, which allows for specialisation later in the course rather than separate degrees for each topic, as they often have considerable overlap.

The breadth of the subject also means that it applies to many different fields. Life science graduates and research can be found in medicine, agriculture, food, law and psychology. Life science graduates can work in many different environments, in a team or alone, and are skilled in problem-solving and analytical thinking.

Careers in Life Sciences

What are the entry requirements for Life Sciences?

As with many science degrees, entry can be very competitive, with some offers reaching A*A*A equivalent and averaging AAB overall. Science subjects like chemistry, biology and physics are essential, and maths is often strongly recommended. For international students wishing to study Fashion at the undergraduate level, an IELTS score of no less than 5.5 across all four categories - reading, writing, speaking and listening – with an overall 6.0 score is generally required at most universities.
