Beyond Year 1 of your biosciences degree

Congratulations on receiving your offer of a place on a biosciences course at Manchester!

As you'll already know, our universal biosciences first year makes it easy to switch between most of our undergraduate course options before you start Year 2. This will give you the flexibility to decide on a specialism as you learn about a range of topics in your first year.

We've created a series of videos to show you what your course will offer in Year 2 and beyond, so you can get a feel for the way your course is structured once you settle on a specialism.


All subjects

Subject-specific videos

Links to videos will be added as they become available.

Study options

Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology

It is not possible to transfer to another course after Year 1 of the Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology course. The below video explains what the course content is like after Year 1.
