Our BSc Developmental Biology course will show you how the single cell formed at fertilisation forms an embryo and then a fully formed adult organism.

Developmental biology is a multidisciplinary field that integrates genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, anatomy, physiology and computer modelling, giving you a grounding in a range of biological disciplines.

You will learn how developmental biology is having a significant impact on our understanding of evolution and modern medicine, including the treatment of birth defects, infertility and cancer in humans.

Of particular interest is the use of stem cells to engineer replacement tissues and organs, which could revolutionise medicine.

Continuation onto the modern language, integrated master’s or industrial/professional experience course is dependent on certain academic criteria.
