What Will You Study

Explore the science of life and broaden your horizons with our flexible Study Abroad degree where you can experience the society and culture of North America or Australasia.

This programme offers amazing overseas experiences whilst equipping you with the real-world skills required to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing our planet, whether it’s researching underlying scientific principles, the development of new treatments for disease, or helping to protect endangered species. You will learn from internationally renowned researchers in our state-of-the-art laboratories, which offers excellent facilities for practical work.

Your first year provides a wide range of introductory level modules. You can choose to follow linked themes of modules throughout the year, or mix and-match to suit your own requirements. Examples of what you can study range from atoms and molecules to biodiversity; from biotechnology to global health and disease; and from spectroscopy to zoology.

Second year modules will be taught overseas at a partnering university. Specialisation will enable you to shape your own degree from a series of in-depth theory and practical skills spanning the whole breadth of bioscience, before completing your third year at Lancaster.
