Welcome to the city at the cutting edge

Oxford is home to some of the greatest biological research in the world with departments covering Zoology to Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. Biological researchers in Oxford work in state-of-the-art laboratories and are surrounded by a rich array of resources including the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, the Botanic Garden, the Herbarium, Harcourt Arboretum, the John Krebs field station and Wytham Woods.

Oxford’s beautiful landscapes, rivers and nature reserves mean you are surrounded by the natural world. But whatever your interest, be it protein functions in the body, or the behaviour of the animals in the Artic Circle, there is something here for you.

From age 13 to 24, our Oxford biology summer courses are designed specifically to fit your level of experience.
