Our Biological Sciences BSc(Hons) covers everything from microbiology, human and animal physiology and biochemistry to ecology, genetics, and molecular biology. You will discover how modern biology can be used to understand and change the world we live in.
With an emphasis on applied learning, this course allows you to explore biological systems at molecular, cell, tissue and whole organism levels. You have the freedom to shape your learning experience and career through option modules, and an optional placement year.
You will have the opportunity to develop your practical skills on field trips and by using our specialist labs and facilities. Current destinations for optional field trips include South Africa and Portugal.
You will learn with a course team who are internationally recognised experts in their field, with research strengths in areas such as zoonotic disease, human physiology, diabetes, genomics, disease processes, and ecology and conservation.
If you achieve the required standard in year 2, you can choose to progress directly to the third year of the Biological Sciences MSci and study towards a masters-level qualification.
