Biological Sciences

Biological Sciences

Biological Sciences encompasses many aspects of the biosciences, from molecular biology through to whole organisms and ecosystems, and includes exploration of:

  • Biological diversity, systematics and conservation
  • Cell and tissue structure, function and physiology
  • Ecology and behaviour
  • Form and function of microorganisms, protists, fungi, plants and animals
  • Genetics and mechanisms and pathways of evolution

Students will gain core technical skills and subject specific practical laboratory / field-based skills to help them investigate and manipulate biological material including relevant physical, chemical and biological measurements and their application in a laboratory, field, and research project setting. During the final year project, students will have access to cutting-edge research facilities across the molecular and ecological disciplines. 

This course has been accredited by the Royal Society of Biology. This highlights the academic quality of the course and recognises the course in enabling graduates to meet the needs of the employer through development of technical and transferable skills.

“What I enjoyed about the Biological Sciences pathway was the ability for me to choose my modules as the degree progressed, allowing me to decide on what I wanted to specialise in. There is a huge range of subjects covered and so I was guaranteed to find the pathway that I enjoyed the most. After third year, I am hoping to pursue a Masters course in parasitology- a subject introduced to me in my final year."
