At the heart of the UK, Leicester is a leading university committed to international excellence, world-changing research and high quality, inspirational teaching. Celebrating diversity among our staff and students; widening participation in higher education; engaging with local, national and international communities – all of these are part of what we do and who we are. 
Founded in 1921 as a memorial to the Great War, the University of Leicester has a proud history of ambitious projects that lead to amazing discoveries. This is where genetic fingerprinting was invented in 1984 and home of the team who found King Richard III. In our second century, we will continue to aspire to be the very best in everything that we do.
Our very compact campus contains a wide range of twentieth century architecture, though the oldest building dates from 1837. The main campus is a mile south of the city centre, adjacent to the green space of Victoria Park.

BSC Biological Sciences
From the simplest to the most complex organisms, from the molecular level to the evolutionary development of species, the living world is endlessly complex and fascinating. This degree takes you across biological boundaries with the option to specialise in your second year
As the knowledge base in the biological sciences grows exponentially and technology becomes ever more sophisticated, the ability to think broadly about biology and to apply your knowledge across the boundaries of traditional disciplines will inevitably become a very valuable and powerful asset both in scientific environments and in many other walks of life.
Packed with exciting subjects and transferable employability skills, you can learn about the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie the full range of biological sciences or you can focus on just the parts that you develop a passion for; you can even see these mechanisms in action on field trips. The analytical and critical skills you acquire by studying Biological Sciences are valued by researchers and employers in non-scientific fields.

Job prospects are excellent: 95% of our Biological/Medical Sciences students are employed (or studying for a Masters degree) six months after graduating. (DLHE)
With a high staff to student ratio, we ensure that every student gets the support and encouragement needed to achieve their best work.
Your teaching will be delivered through a combination of practicals, tutorials and lectures.
All of our Biological Sciences courses are practical degrees with strong emphasis on lab work and fieldwork.

It’s a very interesting time to be an Americanist. At Leicester you will be able to explore everything that has made America what it is today.

You’ll also have the option to immerse yourself in US culture by spending a year in the USA or Canada – an ideal way to gain first-hand knowledge and direct experience of North America.
While historic and traditional America features strongly on our degrees, the contemporary is a particular focus, whether in fiction, politics or cinema, making our courses especially lively and relevant.
