Course summary

This course starts as a broad-based curriculum at Levels 1 and 2, which allows you to combine a wide range of topics before specialising in areas that interest you at Levels 3 and 4. With any aspect of life sciences, it’s important to understand key theories of biology, from molecular level right up to full body systems and beyond. Your first two years of study will explore core concepts like genetics, cell biology, biological organisation, molecular mechanisms and processes. You will develop your practical skills, including laboratory skills, data analysis, and designing and running experiments. This will prepare you for carrying out projects later in your course. You can pick modules that interest you and graduate with BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences, or choose a pathway – Bioinformatics or Plant Sciences – to have these added to your degree title. The flexibility of our courses also means you can transfer on to a different life sciences degree if you choose the relevant modules. Our course curriculum is shaped by the work of our world-leading researchers to make sure you’re learning the latest advances, as well as gaining an understanding of the fundamentals of the field. Lab sessions throughout your degree will help you integrate knowledge and practical skills, as well as develop strong transferable skills, both in and out of the lab.
