Course and general enquiries

You can contact the teaching and research teams within Biological Sciences by ASK or email any time. ASK directs your query to the most appropriate member of staff and you'll be able to track your query's progress and response on this system. We will respond to your ASK email or phone call in less than five working days and will let you know if it takes longer than this. We can also schedule a video callback using Microsoft Teams.

During the academic year 2021/22 our teaching office (room 627) is open during term time from 4.00 - 6.00 pm Monday to Friday at the address below. Please ensure you wear a face covering (unless you are exempt) and follow our coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance before coming onto campus.
