Launching in September 2018, a new pathway at the Leeds International Study Centre will give students more opportunities to develop their skills in Biological Sciences. Successful completion of the course will allow for progression to the second year of a degree at the Faculty of Biological Sciences at the University of Leeds.
This new pathway follows a £2.25 million investment in the Faculty of Biological Sciences. The investment has helped fund laboratories, molecular biology suites and research equipment.
Why study the International Year One in Biological Sciences?
The International Year One course prepares you for the second year of your chosen undergraduate degree by:
- Developing an understanding of different Biological Science subjects
- Improving your English language and study skills
- Being taught by highly skilled lecturers and having access to the latest technologies and University lab sessions
What is included on the course?
The pathway covers subjects like genetics, biochemistry, microbiology and cell biology. Students will develop a thorough understanding of how living cells work and study a wide range of organisms.
Students will then have the option to specialise in one of four pathways:
- Plants and agriculture
- Molecular medicine
- Infection and disease
- Molecular zoology
