Birkbeck's Department of Biological Sciences provides state'of'the'art, specialist laboratories and facilities at the heart of academic London. You will be taught by internationally distinguished experts, who work with governments and institutions around the globe to extend the boundaries of knowledge. Working in close collaboration with the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology, a joint institution between Birkbeck and UCL, our department is recognised for the excellence and international impact of its research. You'll receive training in practical skills and lab work, including microscopy and tabulating data. You'll be part of a community of learners who are focused on learning and determined to succeed. We provide a wide range of help and support. Birkbeck is different: classes are in the evening, so you can work, volunteer or do your own thing during the day. Record numbers of students are doing just that and getting a head start on their future careers.
All years: Chemistry for the biosciences; from molecules to ecosystems; practical skills for the biosciences; bio'organic and physical chemistry; cells: membranes, energy and metabolism; genetics and molecular biology; advanced cell biology; structural biology; advanced molecular biology and bioinformatics; synthetic and mechanistic biological chemistry.
