Study life on all scales to find out where your interests lie, on this flexible and wide-ranging course. Biology encompasses the study of life from molecules to ecosystems. It's an exciting area of study that has a significant impact on our daily lives and is vital to solving some of the world’s biggest challenges. You'll gain a broad foundation of skills across areas such as evolution, ecology, biodiversity, genetics, cell biology and microbiology, equipping you with the knowledge for a range of careers in the biosciences and beyond.

To keep your options open further, you'll even have the flexibility to switch between our biology and biochemistry courses after the first year. If you want a more in-depth study experience, you could consider applying for our MBiol (Hons) Biology course.
