Course summary

What makes Biology at the University of Worcester special? Biology is one of the most actively changing subjects in the sciences, with biologists constantly seeking solutions to the many challenges that shape our world. On our Biology degree, we engage with the subject at every level, from the molecular level through whole organisms and beyond to their relationships with each other and the wider environment. The great thing about doing Biology is that you get to explore the whole of the subject in great detail. It means you have a wide choice when it comes to choosing your modules for the final year and especially choosing what kind of research project you want to take for your dissertation. So whether you fall in love with the subject at the biochemical level or whether your passion is about whole organisms and how they interact, Biology is for you. Key features • Flexible structure: specialise in your particular areas, such as molecular biology or physiology, or keep your interests wider if you prefer. • Study in a friendly and supportive environment. • Opportunity to undertake an optional semester abroad. • Links with local Wildlife Trusts (including Worcestershire Wildlife Trust) and other environmental and conservation agencies, Sea Life Centres and Safari Parks. • Follow your interests and career aspirations by choosing your research project. Recent topics have included Behavioural studies of Barbary Macaques, Reproduction in Amphibians, Extracting DNA from hair samples in small mammal traps, mapping Arabidopsis SPH gene duplication and designing a molecular test to examine Nosema infection in beehives
