UCL Division of Biosciences


Developmental Biology - Year two and three modules

At the end of year two, students have the option to transfer to another specialised degree in the Faculty of Life Sciences e.g Immunology, MSci Cell Biology.*

*Transferring to another degree programme is conditional to specific requirements of each degree programme & UKVI visa requirements.
