Society of Biology accredits a further 18 UK degrees
- 13 December 2013
The range of accredited bioscience degrees continues to grow, with a further 18 programmes accredited by the Society of Biology yesterday.
Degrees taught at the University of Kent and King’s College London have successfully been accredited in the winter round of accreditation for 2014; Durham University, University of Leeds, University of Exeter, and Sheffield Hallam University were awarded interim accredited status for their new degrees that don’t yet have any graduates.
These degrees offer students a range of experiences and opportunities to develop professionally, either through a placement year in industry or an integrated master’s year. Current students and recent graduates are involved in the assessment process for accreditation, and all highly valued the opportunities they were given to develop their practical research skills and widen their experience.
The Degree Accreditation Programme is designed to highlight academic excellence and acknowledge degrees that have the potential to educate the life science leaders and innovators of the future. Degree accreditation supports students entering research-based careers by providing an efficient way of demonstrating their skills and experience to employers.
A full list of all the degrees accredited by the Society of Biology can be found on our accreditation pages.
