Course summary

Overview Study life itself. Discover the why, how and what of living organisms – how we came to be, and how we’ve since evolved. Our four-year integrated Master’s programme spans the entire scale of biological systems, from molecules to ecosystems. You’ll be able to explore the subject as a whole before selecting your area of specialisation. In your final year, you’ll undertake a substantial independent project, which will serve you well if you hope to pursue a career in research, discovering answers to the scientific questions that interest you. We’re world leaders in biological research, and you’ll benefit from exposure to our cutting-edge research in molecular, cellular and whole-organism biology. In the most recent Times Higher Education REF Analysis (2021), we were ranked 17th overall for research quality in Biological Science. You’ll get to grips with the application of science to major global challenges such as environmental management, food security, biotechnology and human health. And you’ll get to explore the role of biology in tackling the challenges society faces today – and in the future. About This Course Our flagship Biological Sciences degree allows you to study a wide range of science subjects in your first year without prematurely committing yourself to any particular specialisation. You’ll also be given a grounding in mathematics, statistics, computing and chemistry. As the course progresses, the flexibility of the programme encourages you to explore and pursue your own specialist interests within biological sciences. You’ll also have the chance to develop your specific scientific interests independently in your final year, when you’ll complete a substantial research project. We aim to provide you with as much academic freedom as possible, so in your second and third years you’ll be offered a defined choice module, which will allow you to select from a huge range of units offered by UEA’s School of Biological Sciences, as well as other Schools across the university. At UEA we are uniquely partnered with the Norwich Research Park, providing you with access to learning experience that is dynamic and fascinating – and fuelled by research that is happening right here, right now.
