Overview of Undergraduate Education

The School contributes to three major undergraduate programmes. A course or programme is known in the University of Cambridge as a Tripos. The Faculty of Biology provides undergraduate education in Biological Sciences within the Natural Sciences Tripos (NST). It also provides pre-clinical education for students in the Medical and Veterinary Sciences Tripos (MVST). A new Tripos has recently been created in Psychological and Behavioural Sciences (PBS).

More information on the courses, for both staff and current students, is to be found on the web sites listed.

Prospective students should consult the admissions website where they can read details of the application process,  qualifications needed, Colleges, finance, Open Days and a range of other helpful information.
