I would like to welcome you all to the Department of Biology and Biochemistry.

Having secured your place to study with us, I am sure that you are looking forward to starting your university career; I wish you continued academic success during your time with us.

Your first weeks at University can be a challenge but we are here to help and support you to be adults, taking responsibility for your own growth, academically and socially.

We start you off with a programme of Freshers’ induction events and, during the first week of the semester, a series of lab sessions to prepare you for future lab work.

We look forward to meeting you at the start of the academic year.

Dr Chris Todd, Director of Teaching
