Biology influences our everyday lives, and is at the forefront of social change, for example, stem-cell research, the use of genetically-modified organisms, humanity’s effect on the environment, and sustainable energy and food production. Studying Biology, you investigate, describe and analyse the structures and functions of living organisms together with how they interact with the environment. This BSc programme provides a broad survey of the various biological disciplines, including anthropology, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, evolution, genetics, infection and immunity, microbiology, and the physiology of animals and plants. The 'Sandwich Year' between Stages 2 and 3, provides an excellent opportunity to gain relevant work experience in industry in the UK or abroad. During your placement you are paid by your employer and produce an independent research project. Opportunities are also available to work in one of our research labs during the summer vacation.
