Our Biology degree scheme offers an excellent range of laboratory and field-based topics with a strong emphasis on the development of key practical skills. Most modules in Biology are supported by laboratory and field based classes. All students have the opportunity to attend a week-long field course . Our close proximity to a diverse range of contrasting environments plus our own facilities provides a wide scope for customising your learning experience. All Biology students carry out a research project module in Year Three. This can be either laboratory or field-based depending on the interests of the student. Some students carry out their projects abroad. The course has a strong emphasis on the development of personal and transferable skills to assist in later employability.
