Research and Study Skills in Biology
Life scientists are employed throughout business and industry, in universities, schools and hospitals, as well as government departments and charitable foundations. They develop new technology, and improve our health and living standards. They’re vitally important to the economy.
Research, education, environmental planning, biomedical science, agri-business and biotechnology, international and domestic government (eg DEFRA, Environment Agency, Food Standards, World Bank), and international conservation agencies (eg RSPB).
Local, national and international government and industries, addressing issues ranging from conservation and management of natural resources through to medical, veterinary or agricultural research.
The national shortage of plant science graduates means there are excellent career opportunities in research institutes, universities, agricultural and horticultural services, in biotechnology and any sector of the economy dealing with climate change.
Environmental assessment, management and conservation, biodiversity monitoring, sustainable forestry and agriculture, environmental impact assessment and waste management.
Conservation and Biodiversity
Resource management, conservation, research and education, finance, forensic science, regional planning, journalism, law and bioethics.
