Applications are invited from graduates in applied and experimental sciences. The list below gives some typical examples, but it is not meant to be exhaustive. This list applies to the course at the time of writing (December 2014): but in a few years we hope to be able to consider applications from graduates in a wider range of subjects.

Please note that, in addition to a degree in bioscience or chemistry, you must have two science A-levels, or equivalent qualification, of which one must be chemistry (unless you have a chemistry degree). If your degree is in a subject other than bioscience, you must also have a qualification in biology at GCSE or O-level, or dual-award science GCSE, or an equivalent qualification.

Acceptable first degree subjects include the following, but if you are in doubt about your own qualification please ask:

  • Anatomy
  • Anatomy with Physiology
  • Astronomy*
  • Biochemistry
  • Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
  • Biomedical Science
  • Biology
  • Botany
  • Chemistry*
  • Chemical Engineering*
  • Dentistry
  • Earth Sciences*
  • Engineering*
  • Experimental Psychology
  • Geology*
  • Human Biology
  • Human Genetics
  • Human Sciences
  • Immunology
  • Marine Biology
  • Materials Science*
  • Medical Sciences
  • Molecular Biology
  • Molecular Genetics
  • Microbiology
  • Natural Sciences
  • Neuroscience
  • Neuroscience with Psychology
  • Pathology

  • Experimental or Applied Physics
  • Physiology
  • Physiology with Philosophy
  • Physiology with Psychology
  • Plant Sciences
  • Experimental Psychology
  • Veterinary Pathogenesis

* - Graduates in subjects other than bioscience must also have biology or dual-award science at GCSE or O-level, or an equivalent qualification.
