BSc Biology offers a unique breadth of study. You will experience the subject from a cellular level through to human biology to an environmental, global level. The degree includes many of the same core options that Biomedical Science and Biological Science offer, as well as further modules for you to choose from year two onwards. Study a whole module on cancer therapeutics taught by a leading writer Lauren Pecorino, or neuroscience to explore the the complexities of neuro-degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease. This programme is highly practical - it offers a lot of field work and laboratory practical work opportunities. iPads and online interaction during lectures make for an exciting learning experience. You can expect to have small laboratory class sizes and tutor support. Your personal tutor knows your name, and you won't feel like a statistic. You will also benefit from exposure to popular lectures from other programmes such as biomedical science, human nutrition, pharmaceutical science, geography and environmental science, as you choose. There is an international focus to the BSc Biology programme: you can travel to Spain for field trip, hear from speakers with international experience, and benefit from global expertise across four different departments. This includes the Natural Resources Institute (NRI) which specialises on international issues like biofuels, food security, biodiversity, genetic modification and organic crops. The BSc Biology programme's multi-disciplinary structure offers you a wide choice of modules to study broadly or specialise in an area of your choice such as molecular biology or medical research. You are exposed to an international team of professors from across all these disciplines from day one, and can get a sense of what area you're interested in and want to continue in. Modules require a minimum number of students to run each year, so these are subject to change. We provide you with a white laboratory coat, an iPad, safety glasses in the first few weeks of your programme. Although field work would be funded by student, we offer a range of bursaries and scholarships to support you with tuition fees. The aims of the programme are to: Provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary understanding of biology, from the molecular to the global level Develop the learning, analytical, critical, and presentational skills to support lifetime learning and career development Investigate, document and analyse living systems and understand underlying philosophical, ethical and scientific paradigms relevant to biology Provide the understanding, knowledge portfolio and skills needed to thrive in industry, academia or public sector locally and globally Prepare graduates for employment opportunities in the biomedical science, biotechnology, environmental consultancy, agribusiness and sustainable development sectors.
