Research? Field work? Lab work at a pharmaceutical company? Biology and biosciences at Edge Hill University prepares you for a range of roles where you can make a real impact.

With academics making discoveries in biomedical science, ecology, taxonomy and microbiology, you’ll be immersed in a rich research environment. When you’re not writing lab reports, we might ask you to produce an animation showing a biological process, curate a museum collection or even join us on a field trip (paid for by us).
