Our BSc (Hons) Biology programme offers the chance to gain a solid grounding in the biological sciences – with the flexibility to develop your own interests and learn about the areas and aspects that match your career ambitions. Study Biology at Manchester Met and you’ll begin by learning the fundamentals of the subject, before exploring the areas that interest you most through a variety of option units. Along the way, you’ll explore the issues that shape our world and touch our lives – from molecular biology and genetics, to ecology, biodiversity and conservation. In our laboratories, you’ll get to grips with the latest equipment, as we help you develop a range of practical skills that you can take into your career. And, by getting out in the field, you can learn about biology out in the real world – whether in the UK or overseas. **FEATURES AND BENEFITS:** - Take the four-year route, spending a year studying overseas in Europe, North America or Australia, or boosting your career prospects with a 12-month placement. - Develop practical skills in the laboratory and in the field – that could include fieldwork in the UK, Portugal, Tanzania, Kenya or South America. - Learn in high-spec laboratories, including a specialist microbiology and cell/molecular biology lab, a DNA-sequencing lab, specialist animal behaviour facilities with Ethovision and Observer software, invertebrate behaviour, freshwater and terrestrial ecology labs and controlled environment plant growth chambers.
