Higher Education

Some fantastic resources to support lecturers and students in higher education


Useful websites & groups

Lecturers can use our higher education website which hosts free resources for academic teaching. They can also search for external examiners using our database.

Our special interest group the Heads of University Biosciences (HUBS) support the higher education community. HUBS are a source of information and comment for higher education policy work. HUBS run workshops and meetings for the higher education bioscience community covering teaching and research issues which can be attended by members and non-members.

Information about careers

We offer careers resources to support students including booklets with information about choosing degree courses; and information is available about courses which have received accreditation and advanced accreditation through the Royal Society of Biology. We also have information on possible next steps after a bioscience degree.
