Career opportunities

Our graduates go into a wide range of sectors, with 90% in work or further study six months after completing the course.

Around one-third of graduates work in scientific research and development, which may require significant postgraduate study, usually a PhD. They then go on to work as researchers at universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies and institutes.

The rest of our graduates go into a diverse range of careers, including teaching or communicating science, as well as careers unrelated to biological sciences including management, finance, marketing and the civil service.
