Biological Sciences - University of Huddersfield

**Biological Sciences is a fascinating subject area and it’s related to our everyday existence. It studies life and living organisms including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution and taxonomy. From the growth and division of simple bacteria through to the evolution, development, growth and adaptation of complex multi-cellular organisms, and the emerging role of genomics in personalised medicine and biodiversity in a changing world.** - This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology (https://www.rsb.org.uk/education/accreditation) - You’ll have the opportunity to study core topics and consider contemporary issues in all major aspects of biology. Optional choices in each year of your course provide you with opportunities to specialise further in core areas of molecular cell biology, organismal biology, and ecology and environmental biology. Or alternatively, you can vary your choice of optional modules to keep your coverage of the biological sciences broad. - Your learning will be supported by doctoral-level academics with expertise or active research interests in diverse areas of biology and genetics, including cancer pharmacology, ancient and modern patterns of human migration, environmental and evolutionary microbiology, novel antimicrobials, and the cell biology of human disease. - You’ll receive hands-on practical training in the laboratory using modern equipment, developing the skills and interests that help to prepare you for a research dissertation in the final year. As a further boost for your CV and employment prospects there’s also the opportunity of a placement year in industry or research in the third year of the course. - As a student on this course you’ll be able to apply for undergraduate membership of the Biochemical Society (https://www.biochemistry.org/Membership/Join/Undergraduate.aspx) and The Physiological Society (UK) (https://www.physoc.org/undergraduate-membership).
