Your Modules

At the RVC we have crafted each Biological Science course to ensure students gain a well-rounded understanding of the subject but are also free to specialise more closely in areas of interest at the course progresses through the ‘Pathway Approach’. While studying, you'll have some compulsory modules that will lay the foundations of good scientific understanding and equip you with vital research and lab skills. As you progress in your studies, you'll have more autonomy about what you study through optional modules, which allow you to tailor your degree to your interests and discover new passions. You can find out more about the modules we offer below:


Each Biological Science course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology, meaning the course has passed rigorous assessment to determine that graduates of the course are equipped with subject knowledge, technical ability and transferable skills.
