Course summary

Biology at Hull is all about ‘hands-on’ learning, with options including genetics, cell biology, physiology, evolution, conservation and environmental change. You can also take modules from other subject areas, including human biology, biochemistry, geography and environmental science – allowing you to build a course to suit your interests and ambitions. We offer a practical Biology with Education module to final-year students, many of whom go on to postgraduate teacher training. Our research informs our teaching. This course could also see you investigating topics such as the evolution of sex, the genomics of crop pests, or genetic adaptation to environmental stress. We pride ourselves on our unique blend of laboratory and field-based practical teaching, as we recognise the need to work across disciplinary boundaries to solve global issues. Guided by our award-winning experts, you’ll gain industry-standard lab skills in cutting-edge techniques like genetic analysis, microscopy, DNA sequencing and DNA programming. The field, analytic and lab skills you’ll learn here are much in demand, and you’ll get the chance to engage with employers in a range of local organisations and businesses. This flexible programme gives you the opportunity to follow your interests into specialist areas or, if you prefer, you can keep our options open and develop a broad knowledge of the science of living things. Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it. What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership. We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else. Find out more at hull.ac.uk/teamgb
