    Presentación

    As a result of the sequencing of the entire genome of many species, genetics is rapidly growing in importance. The same basic genetic principles apply to humans, animals, plants, and microorganisms such as bacteria. This gives flexibility to genetics graduates in future employment. Areas where genetics is important include the development of pharmaceuticals, forensic science, the treatment of diseases, the study of evolution, and the conservation of biodiversity.

    Requisitos

    A typical offer is BBB - ABB at A-Level [or equivalent for other qualifications: 300 – 320 UCAS tariff points].

    You must have a good grade in Biology. Another science subject such as Chemistry is desirable.

    Students studying for BTEC qualifications would require a minimum grade B at A- Level in Biology plus a DD in a relevant BTEC Diploma (12 units).

    IB: 32 - 33 (including good HL grades in Chemistry and Biology).

    We make individual offers for your circumstances after reading your UCAS personal statements and references.
