Accrediting organisations

This programme has been accredited with the status of Advanced Accreditation by the Society of Biology.  Advanced Accreditation  recognises academic excellence in the biosciences, highlighting degrees which contain a significant research element and educate the future leaders of research and development. The advanced accreditation criteria require evidence that graduates from the programme meet defined sets of learning outcomes, including gaining a substantial period of research experience.

In recognition of the period of practice, a graduate of an advanced accredited programme can apply for membership of the Society of Biology at Member (MSB) level after just two years of practice, rather than the usual three years. This will allow these graduates to attain the qualifications of Chartered Biologist or Chartered Scientist one year sooner than graduates from other degree programmes.
