Course summary

The MSci is ideal if you have ambitions to continue in biological research and want a competitive edge in applying for a PhD or research jobs. Studying biology at Bristol exposes you to the breadth and depth of biological sciences, from enzymes to ecosystems. During your study with us you will gain knowledge of the diversity, evolution, function and interactions between animals, microbes and plants. Our programme reflects the interdisciplinary nature of modern biology, taking into account the past, present and future of life on Earth. Our biology degree starts broadly and then introduces more choice in years two and three, allowing you to specialise or maintain breadth in your studies depending on your interests. The additional fourth year of the MSci contains advanced skills training and a substantial research project, which is especially valuable for those aiming for a career in biological sciences.
