Biology is a discipline with a broad range of applications affecting many areas of human activity and living organisms. You will study life at all levels, from molecules and organelles to organisms and ecosystems. You will gain the technical, analytical and practical skills needed to investigate biological phenomena in microorganisms, plants, human beings and other animals. Your study of biological sciences will examine the physiology of the human body, and how it is affected by disease and drug. You will study the structure, biochemistry, and mechanics of the cell, evolutionary processes and genetics, both in mammals and micro-organisms. All of this will be accomplished in your first year! The Biological Sciences programme offers you flexibility and a broad range of options for study. The first year provides a solid foundation in all aspects of biological theory and practice, from molecules to whole organisms. This approach will enable you to determine your future studies with conviction. At the end of your degree you will be eligible for graduate membership of the Institute of Biology.
