After you apply
If you meet our entry requirements you will also be invited to attend one of our open days, part of which will include a small group exercise led by one of our academic staff. You will talk about a relevant biological or biomedical topic and discuss it with other members of the group.
This is an opportunity for you to demonstrate how you work with others; it is not a knowledge test. It’s also a chance to ask an individual member of staff any questions.
Offers are made on the basis of the entry requirements, information in the UCAS form and the outcome of the group exercise.
