Genetics, BSc Hons FullTime

As a first-year student these ratings are subject to change, but as of writing the course content has been engaging and the standard of lecturers within SoLS is very high. All lectures are recorded and are able to be accessed via the university moodle page, and lecturers are mostly very accessible and happy to explain concepts or answer questions that you may have and are unable to find a good answer to elsewhere. read more

Microbiology, BSc Hons FullTime

The microbiology staff as a whole are brilliant. There’s a lot of thought that goes into the teaching on the course and they’re very considerate of asking us what we need more help on and what can be improved in lectures. They’re very informative on career options and how you get into such pathways and give us information for industry placements etc. read more
