USW Biology degrees receive royal accreditation

RSB accreditation for Biology courses

The University of South Wales has been awarded accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology in recognition of its outstanding degree courses.

BScBiology, BSc Human Biology and BSc International Wildlife Biology at USW have all been accredited as part of the RSB certification programme, which champions excellence in the biosciences.

The programme identifies degree programmes that offer a high standard of teaching, curriculum provision and practical skillset development, as well as those that enhance graduate employability skills.

USW was among 12 universities in the UK to receive accreditation status, which was celebrated at an event in the Houses of Parliament last month, attended by Dr Dawn Story, Head of School of Applied Sciences (pictured above, right).

There are currently more than 17,000 students enrolled on RSB accredited courses across the UK.

Professor Dame Jean Thomas, President of the RSB, said: “We are delighted that three biosciences courses at the University of South Wales have been granted Accreditation status by the Royal Society of Biology. Accreditation recognises institutions that offer an outstanding bioscience education and equip their graduates with the skills needed to thrive in a global market.

“Championing high standards in education is critical to providing a foundation for a collaborative biosciences community, and we are proud that the RSB can play a part in recognising and supporting this.”
