Life Sciences at Glasgow

With hands-on experience and flexible degrees, studying at the School of Life Sciences challenges you to apply the theory of the classroom in practical situations, in the lab or the field. We offer an extremely wide range of courses in human and animal biology, biomolecular sciences, infection and immunity.

Our aim is to offer internationally competitive degrees that meet the needs of today’s science graduates. To achieve this aim, we utilise the research and teaching strengths of the College of Medical, Veterinary & Life Sciences to provide our graduates with the skills necessary for success in any chosen career.

We have a large and diverse student body, which includes Scottish, UK, EU and international students. We regularly welcome visiting and exchange students, and we believe in the many advantages our students gain from adding an international dimension to their studies.


There are increasing opportunities in the agrochemical, pharmaceutical and fermentation industries, particularly for those graduates with interests in plant molecular biology and biotechnology.

Graduates with ecological interests are increasingly being employed to monitor the environmental aspects of such industries and in conservation work. Other areas of employment include the Scientific Civil Service, government research laboratories and teaching.
