Plant Sciences University of Bristol

Undergraduate

At Bristol, we offer a Plant Sciences degree which studies the full range of plant biology, from enzymes through to ecosystems. During your study with us you will gain knowledge of the diversity, evolution and function of plants and of the latest developments in functional genomics, bioinformatics, plant developmental biology, plant pathology, parasite biology, cell signalling, pollination biology, ecology, plant conservation and systems biology.

Your Plant Sciences degree will start broadly and then introduce more choice in years two and three, including a week-long field or laboratory course, along with a ten-week practical research project.

The University Botanic Garden is nearby with more than 4500 plant species and was the first new university botanic garden to be built for 40 years.
