Many aspects of how we understand science have changed dramatically over the past 100 years. With innovative discoveries and continuous development at the heart of scientific industries, the demand for people trained in both biological and chemical sciences is on the rise.

Why CU London

We are committed to delivering a modern university experience to all our students. Our unique timetable and teaching structure gives you flexibility and our small class sizes ensure students receive plenty of contact hours with tutors. We are also dedicated to making higher education accessible and enjoyable to everyone, so we kept our fees low, our timetable structured and made it a policy to cover one module at a time, allowing you to become a specialist in each topic before moving onto the next.

Course information

The breadth of this course reflects the blurring boundaries between biological and chemical sciences.

The course itself has been designed to provide students with a range of skills and knowledge that is necessary in today’s multidisciplinary environment. It also offers a unique insight into human life processes, starting at a cellular level and progressing to advanced pathophysiology of disease, equipping you will all the necessary knowledge to become an employable Bachelor of Science.



Year one

As an introduction to the programme, you will cover the fundamentals that underpin biological and chemical sciences, including aspects of cell biology, chemistry and physiology. Within this multi-disciplinary year, you’ll develop an understanding of the core schools of scientific research, key technical practices and their applications within the health sector. Students who complete year one are awarded a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Biological & Chemical Sciences

  • Cell Biology
  • Infectious Disease and Parasitology
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Chemistry

Year two

In the second year, you are working at a higher, advanced level, studying complex topics and autonomously conducting in-depth analysis as you work towards progressing into year three. This is an exciting year; you are required to wear lab coats and protective gloves throughout, as you will learn solely through practical lab work. You’ll study functional substrates, bonding and mechanisms and apply knowledge of molecular techniques within the area of gene technology. Students who complete year two are awarded a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Biological & Chemical Sciences.

  • Mini Project
  • Organic Chemistry
  • Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Advanced Physiology/Pharmacology

Placement year

Sandwich and placement years give you the opportunity to gain further insight into the industry or career you are seeking to follow. This enables you to contextualise the theoretical models and concepts discussed in the classroom in the workplace. Furthermore, if you choose to take advantage of a placement or sandwich year, this version of the degree will help to increase your employment prospects by acquiring skills and gaining an understanding of what employers expect of graduates.

Final year

In the final year of study, you are encouraged to work autonomously, developing creative, critical and curious thinking to self-learn and prepare for progression into industry. The module complexity increases this year, as you analyse environmental chemistry whilst being introduced to the pathophysiology of a wide range of diseases. Packed with experiments and applied learning, you will spend the majority of your time working within the laboratories, observing and testing clinical signs and symptoms used to diagnose disorders, growth and change. Students who complete year three are awarded a Degree (BSc) in Biological & Chemical Sciences.

  • Pathophysiology of Disease
  • Advanced Cell Biology
  • Analytical Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry
  • Dissertation


You’ll be based in the spacious Civic Centre building, which provides an outstanding learning environment. You will have access to our Library & Learning Services, which hosts multiple study areas and loanable laptops, fully-equipped seminar rooms and impressive IT suites. Our laboratories are home to industry-standard equipment, so that you learn using the same equipment as many industry professionals.


Each course unit has been developed and is taught by specialists in the field of chemical or biological science. Our lecturers bring a wealth of expertise, with staff members currently contributing to the scientific research.

Practical Experience

Throughout your studies, you will find that the course is underpinned with practical elements. During the course, you will have the opportunity to dissect an organ, such as a heart, lungs or even a brain, synthesise drugs, grow your own form of bacterium and more.


At CU London, we put a strong focus on getting our graduates ready to enter the job market. This can be done in a variety of ways—one key element is work placements. With this degree, you are given the opportunity to undertake short and long-term placements in between the second and third year.

How you'll be taught

This course is available as a full-time three year or optional four-year sandwich course, the latter incorporating a work placement or study year in a related field. Alternatively, part-time study is also available and with our Saturday University programme, this course can be completed in as little as three years. Our teaching methods are varied, offering a number of teaching styles to suit the needs of all our students, so in addition to lectures, we also utilise a blended learning approach, including online aspects, workshops and group work.

We also operate an open-door policy, with additional availability via email and our online learning platform, Moodle.

Progression through the modules develops knowledge and skills, including communication (written and oral), study skills, research methods, project management, presentation and career development. We will also encourage you to consider your employability and/or entrepreneurial development.

Unlike traditional institutions, there are no end of year exams. Instead, learning is assessed through coursework and phase tests, which is more reflective of our learning model.



How much does it cost?

Full-time course is: £7,301 (per year)
