What Will You Study
The Bioscience with Entrepreneurship degree is aimed at students with an interest in a range of Bioscience topics but who are also looking to understand the challenges of entrepreneurship and innovation. This degree provides a broad range of Bioscience and Entrepreneurship modules for you to choose from, so you can tailor this degree to suit your own interests and career aspirations. No prior experience of Business or Entrepreneurship is required for entry to this degree scheme.
Bioscience is a fast-paced, innovative environment that increasingly requires graduates who are not only leading scientists, but those who also have an entrepreneurial mind-set. Entrepreneurship is about being equipped to identify new opportunities, knowing how to act on them, and making a difference – it is not just about business start-up, but is applicable within a range of different contexts. The degree will also provide you with a range of transferable skills that are increasingly asked for by graduate employers, as well as opening up a variety of other career pathways.

Lancaster University offers a range of programmes, some of which follow a structured study programme, and others which offer the chance for you to devise a more flexible programme. We divide academic study into two sections - Part 1 (Year 1) and Part 2 (Year 2, 3 and sometimes 4). For most programmes Part 1 requires you to study 120 credits spread over at least three modules which, depending upon your programme, will be drawn from one, two or three different academic subjects. A higher degree of specialisation then develops in subsequent years. For more information about our teaching methods at Lancaster visit our Teaching and Learning section.
Information contained on the website with respect to modules is correct at the time of publication, but changes may be necessary, for example as a result of student feedback, Professional Statutory and Regulatory Bodies' (PSRB) requirements, staff changes, and new research.
