Develop the knowledge and skills to play a vital role as a practical scientist and interpreter of modern bioscience. You will learn about life on all scales, from the molecular to global ecosystems. You’ll start by studying a broad range of topics in modern biosciences before focussing on a few specific areas of biology. Specialisms include areas such as organismal interrelationships, developmental biology and genomic evolution. In the first year you’ll study a broad introduction to biosciences through a set of core units. You’ll also gain hands-on experience of practical scientific techniques in dedicated undergraduate laboratories. You will be able to use your fundamental knowledge base to decide what area of biology you’d like to specialise in later. In the final year you’ll undertake a research project, giving you first-hand experience as a researcher. Research areas include evolution and biodiversity, infection and immunity, industrial biotechnology and developmental biology. You’ll graduate with a solid foundation for further study or for graduate roles where a broader knowledge of biosciences is needed. The skills you develop will also prepare you for a wide array of other careers.
