University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
A key strength of studying biology at Bristol is exposure to the breadth of biological sciences, from the molecular to the ecological, reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of modern biology. Our biology degree starts broadly and then introduces more choice in years two and three, giving you the freedom to specialise or maintain breadth in your studies depending on your interests. The range of research-oriented and transferable skills you will learn will also enhance your employability as a graduate. We have outstanding facilities in our brand new state-of-the-art Life Sciences Building, and our lecturers are top researchers in their fields.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
