Biology - University of Leeds

Studying Biology at Leeds will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of genetics, immunology, microbiology and other key disciplines as well as giving you the flexibility and choice to explore areas such as plant growth, conservation biology, population genetics, bioinformatics and many more. This means you can tailor your degree programme to your interests, maintaining the core breadth of Biology but allowing specialisation into topics and research areas as you progress through the programme. Our integrated Masters offers you an additional year of specialist training. You’ll be introduced to advanced topics such as Host-Parasite Interactions and Infection Diseases. You’ll also undertake an extended research project. **Make an impact** Biology impacts on everything from global warming and climate change to the challenges associated with a growing world population and its impact on the environment, food security, medicine, health, disease and an ageing population. New technologies, including genomics in medicine, gene modification and biotechnology and digital sensing are transforming the world around us and the way we live. As part of the new generation of graduates, you will be equipped to understand and push forward these new developments, with the skills and knowledge of the fundamental biological processes required to make the future advances that will shape our lives in the coming decades. **Course highlights** - Contribute to science with your final year research project with an expert in the field. For example, you could work with Dr Maria Beger on her project 'How can we manage coral reefs threatened by climate change?' - Field courses options including Marine Zoology in Pembrokeshire, Mediterranean Ecology in Spain and African Ecology in South Africa. - Access to visit and conduct research on the University pig farm, an international centre for research - Practical experience and fieldwork. Practical modules include Practical Genetics, Parasitology and Field Course options.
