Biological Sciences with a Year Abroad

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. You’ll spend your third year studying at one of our partner universities in Australasia, North America or Europe. This is a fantastic opportunity – academically, socially and culturally – to experience university life in another country. Your year abroad, and the adaptability it fosters, will also be an attractive asset to future employers. As the course progresses, the flexibility of your programme encourages you to explore and pursue your own specialist interests within biological sciences. You’ll also have the chance to further develop these interests when you complete a substantial final year 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 lay the foundations for a career at the forefront of biological research, where you could have a positive impact on the daily lives of people all over the world. At UEA we are uniquely partnered with the Norwich Research Park, providing you with access to learning experience that is dynamic and fascinating – and fueled by current research, which is happening right here, right now. **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** Your second year will enable 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** Complete years one and two successfully and you’ll spend your third year studying overseas at one of our partner universities in Australasia, North America or Europe. All universities have their own area of research focus, and they’re reflected in their teachings. So your year abroad is a fantastic chance to cover aspects of biology that aren’t our main focus at UEA. Which means you’ll not only get to experience another country and culture, you’ll broaden your academic horizons, too. **Year 4** 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.
