Welcome to the birthplace of modern biology

One person would undoubtedly spring to mind were you to think about the history of biology… and that’s Charles Darwin. And it’s a well-known fact that the father of modern biology was himself Cambridge alumni. But Darwin’s not the only influential biologist to study in the city. Notable biology Cambridge students included William Harvey (chronicler of the body’s circulatory system) as well as countless Nobel Prize winners in the field.

Needless to say, if you are thinking about a summer course in biology here in Cambridge, you’d be in good company. Boiled down, biology is the study of life. And on this course, you will receive a unique learning experience based on our interactive teaching methods – with the added knowledge that you’ll be walking the path of some of the most influential biologists the world has known.
