We typically receive a high number of applications to our courses in the School of Biomedical Sciences. The number of applicants exceeds the number of places available and so, to ensure that we treat all applications fairly and equitably, we review applications after the UCAS deadline before making a final decision for the following programmes:
- Biomedical Sciences (BSc and MBiol)
- Human Physiology, Physical Activity & Health (BSc and MBiol)
- Neuroscience (BSc and MBiol)
- Pharmacology (BSc and MBiol)
- Sport and Exercise Sciences (BSc)
This is a normal part of our process for these courses and may mean applicants have to wait longer than usual to hear from us.
Offer decisions are made based on an overall review of applications including predicted grades, breadth of knowledge demonstrated through qualifications, personal statement, extra-curricular and work experience, and contextual information.
The Faculty of Biological Sciences will consider applications from those who wish to transfer internally from other programmes at the University of Leeds, providing they’re made by 25 January 2023 UCAS deadline. Applicants are expected to meet the standard academic entry requirements. Applicants will be expected to discuss their change of programme with the Admissions Team before being accepted. Students wishing to be considered for second year entry should consult the section above for more information on Advanced Entry.
The Faculty of Biological Sciences will consider applications from those who are re-taking examinations prior to entering the University.
The Faculty of Biological Sciences will consider applications for deferred entry. Applicants who wish to defer following the submission of their application must do so prior to commencing the course, but preferably before the confirmation of a place.
The Faculty of Biological Sciences does not require applicants to attend an interview as part of the admissions process.
