Biological Sciences (Biotechnology)

Biology is the study of life and embraces many different areas of both biological and biomedical interest. Studies range from exploring molecular structures, to understanding how genes work, the development and behaviour of microorganisms, plants and animals, their evolution, and their environmental interactions and impacts. It reveals core scientific knowledge of how cells and organisms function, and results in applications that underpin up-to-the-minute technological and scientific advances. Biotechnology is one of the most dynamic areas of modern biology and takes a 'finding solutions' approach. It includes the study of microbial biotechnology, genetic and cloning technologies, drug design, plant cell technology, synthetic biology, stem cells and biological production methods. Our research in biological sciences is consistently ranked as internationally excellent. We offer a flexible programme structure, taught by dedicated teaching staff who are world leaders in their research disciplines, using state-of-the-art facilities. Within the School of Biological Sciences, a wide range of subject choices is open to all students beyond first year.
