Applications and Open Days

Applications for Biomedical and Life Science undergraduate degree schemes must be made through UCAS. You can obtain a copy of the UCAS Directory and application form from your school or college, or directly from UCAS.

Open Days

In addition to the annual University Open Days and frequently-scheduled Campus Tours, the Division of Biomedical and Life Sciences welcomes applicants to our own events.

Once we have received your UCAS application we will invite you to an open day relevant to the degree scheme(s) for which you have applied, with parents/guardians very welcome to attend as well. These events are normally held between November and March and are designed such that you will see the Division of Biomedical and Life Sciences in full swing with our current students attending lectures and practical classes.

Open days will incorporate the following opportunities:

  • A one-to-one informal discussion with an academic staff member giving you the opportunity to find out more about your chosen course, the Division and the University generally.
  • Presentations by academic staff members about our degree schemes and student welfare/finance at the University and a talk by one of our current students about what it's like to study here.
  • A tour of the Division and campus. We will show you our excellent teaching and research facilities and hopefully give you a flavour of the type of research expertise on offer in the Division. You will also be shown more of the campus generally and have the opportunity to see some typical on-campus student accommodation.

Please note:

Individuals applying for Biological Sciences (C100) or Biological Sciences Year Abroad (C102) are invited to book on one of the open days with our colleagues in the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC).
