Cellular Biology degrees abroad

Cellular biology is a branch of biological science that examines the structure and function of cells in animals, plants, and microbes.

As well as learning about the lifecycle of individual cells and the crucial processes they perform, you’ll see how they work together to form tissues and embryos. You’ll understand the roles of cells in ill-health, and look into groundbreaking research that aims to fight diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes.

Studying cellular biology abroad will put you at the forefront of international research and discussion in the field. You’ll meet world-leading professors, learn in cutting-edge facilities, and make memories to last a lifetime.

Cellular Biology program structure

Bachelor’s degrees in cellular biology require at least three years of full-time study. Most programs allow you to take a placement year, but this will increase your total course length to four years. Completing a placement is a worthwhile experience where you’ll build your professional skills and connections.

If you choose to study as an undergraduate in the US, your degree will take four years to finish. Before focusing on your cellular biology major, you’ll need to complete two years of liberal arts classes.

If you’re hoping to begin a career in academic research or the biosciences industry, you’ll likely need a postgraduate qualification. Master’s degrees are generally taken over one or two years, depending on where you study and whether you’re a part or full-time student. It will take around another five years to earn a PhD.

Lectures, seminars, tutorials, workshops, laboratories, and fieldwork trips are the most common teaching methods on cellular biology courses. You’ll mainly be assessed through written and practical exams, but lab reports and research projects are common too.

Every university offers a different mixture of elective modules for students to choose from. However, most institutions deliver core units in the following fundamentals:

  • Cellular and cellular biology
  • Cell structure and function
  • Cell metabolism
  • Biochemistry
  • Genetics, evolution, and development
  • Microbiology
  • Animal and plant biology
  • Laboratory and professional skills for bioscientists
