Overview

BSc Biology programme starts with a broad study of the biosciences, to include microbes, plants and animals, giving you a fuller understanding of living matter. You will also study life at several different levels, from molecules and cells to whole organisms and species, right up to communities and ecosystems. Teaching you and helping you to become a biologist will be lecturers who are world experts in their research areas.

The university’s scientists are actively working at the cutting edge of a broad range of fields within biological science, from neuroscience to ecological and evolutionary theory to the adaptations of plants and animals under global environmental changes and the development of strategies to combat the detrimental effects of these changes.

Programme structure

On this BSc Biology degree eight modular units are taken each academic year, four in semester one and four in semester two. A unit normally consists of two lectures a week plus a three-hour practical on alternate weeks. Practicals and other components of in-course assessment make up 25% of your final mark for the year.

In your third year, you have the opportunity to do an individual research project in one of the laboratories at the university, in which you will make new discoveries alongside other researchers. You will use up-to-date equipment and gain important experimental skills .
