Covering everything from microbiology, human physiology and biochemistry, to ecology, genetics and molecular biology, this degree allows students to discover how modern biology can be used to understand and change the world we live in. With an emphasis on practical learning, students explore biological systems at molecular, cell, tissue and whole organism levels. Using facilities that replicate industry, and undertaking placement opportunities, students graduate with the skills needed for a career in the biosciences. Fieldwork in the UK and overseas, including the option to visit South Africa, further develops practical skills. Students learn with internationally recognised teaching staff who are experts in their fields.
