As a Biological Sciences student at Westminster, you will benefit from some of the best teaching and facilities available. Our staff and courses are recognised for their excellence in teaching, and our state'of'the'art laboratories were recently completely refurbished as part of a multi'million pound modernisation plan. Our experienced and research'active staff work in close collaboration with bio'industry, the NHS and research institutions within the UK, Europe and the US. In the recent Research Assessment Exercise, a proportion of the research outputs in all subject areas submitted across Life Sciences were judged to be at world'leading and internationally excellent levels. The course is designed with flexibility at its core, which is reflected in the breadth of education you will receive and in the modern and dynamic approach to teaching and learning, underpinned by our belief that learning should be fun, engaging and the best possible value.
