Accreditation, granted by The Society of Biology, is awarded to programmes that demonstrate the highest standards in the biosciences and provide graduates with the skills for academic and industry careers. The award was accepted by Associate Dean for Teaching, Learning, and Students, Professor Catherine McCrohan:
“Recognition of our four-year degree programmes is the result of the combined efforts and the dedication of a huge number of individuals, both staff and students. In particular, I would like to thank academic and support staff, especially programme directors and those involved with sourcing and administering our many and varied placements. The Society particularly commented on the quality and enthusiasm of our students, and their confidence to tackle challenging placements in far-flung locations. Thank you to everyone”
The 34 accredited programmes range from anatomical sciences to zoology. Each was recognised for their high quality, the choices they offer, and the way they prepare our students for the future careers. Every programme includes a year’s placement in which students take part in a significant research project.
