Careers and Employability

We prepare you for the career you want. Across the University, 97% of Lancaster alumni are in work – 82% at graduate level – or further study within six months of graduating.

A degree in a Bioscience can enable you to specialise in a given area, but because we embed a range of transferable skills into the curriculum (in areas such as communication, problem solving and numeracy), you are not limited to purely science-based careers.
