Broad entry degrees, flexibility and choices

We recognise that choosing the right degree can be daunting whether it’s learning about the difference between degree courses, the associated career opportunities or the extent to which you might wish to specialise during your degree.

We offer an array of degree courses ranging from broad entry degrees in Medical Sciences, Biological Sciences and Biology to specialist degrees such as Sport and Exercise Sciences, Neuroscience, Biochemistry or Genetics. 

If you are undecided about a specific course to study then our broad entry degree courses are designed to provide you with a broad foundation as a scientist before specialising. Alternatively, you may wish to study a specific course that specialises in one area of the biosciences.

All our degrees are designed to provide choice and flexibility to transfer between degrees courses after your first year of study.

If you're a medical, veterinary or dental student, studying at the University of Leeds or elsewhere, and interested in intercalation, we also have a range of intercalated courses available.
