The College admits four or five candidates each year to read for the degree in Biological Sciences. Applications for deferred entry are welcome. Most applicants will have followed Biology at A-level and Chemistry at AS, A2 or equivalent, but there are no specific subject requirements. The College coordinates an exchange scheme with Texas A&M University that enables some undergraduates to do summer vacation project work in Texas. There is also the Gatsby Plant Science Summer School at the University of Leeds which is open for first year undergraduates to apply to.
The College has beautiful gardens which are rich with wildlife.
