Biological Sciences

Our flagship Biological Sciences degree allows you to study a wide range of science subjects in the first year without prematurely committing yourself to any particular specialisation. You’ll also be given a grounding in other core sciences such as mathematics, statistics and chemistry. As the course progresses, the flexibility of the programme encourages you to explore and pursue your own specialist interests within Biological Sciences. You’ll also have the chance to develop your specific scientific interests through independent research in your final year, when you’ll complete a substantial research project. If you love the world around you – examining how this connects to that, and how that impacts on this – our degree is an excellent choice. You’ll cover topics from antibiotic resistance to biofuels, from cancer to bees. And you’ll be preparing for a career at the forefront of biological research, where you could have a positive impact on people’s daily lives. You will benefit from our enviable position as an integral partner of the Norwich Research Park, which is also home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and independent, world-renowned research institutes such as the John Innes Centre, The Sainsbury Laboratory, the Earlham Institute, and the new £75-million Quadram Institute. **Course Structure** **Year 1** In the first year of your degree you’ll be given a thorough introduction to Biological Sciences, alongside other core elements relating to the study of science, such as mathematics. You’ll also begin to develop the key scientific skills essential to your future research projects. **Year 2** The second year will allow you to pursue your interests in specialist biological subjects through a range of optional modules. Meanwhile a defined choice module will allow you to select a topic from other Science Schools or even a language, subject to the approval of the desired School of study. **Year 3** In your final year you’ll have an even greater range of modules to choose from, which will focus on specific biological issues ranging from molecular plant-microbe interactions to cancer biology. You’ll also study some topics in more depth and can choose to take modules that will support your research as you conduct your substantial independent research project. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
