A wide variety of UK field trips studying marine biology, parasitology, ecology and biodiversity during the degree. Extensive opportunities for work placements and overseas study, including a year in the USA. Taught by internationally-leading researchers in parasitology, biomedical science and molecular biology Biology is the science of living things and is also used to explain how humans interact with and influence the natural environment. Furthering our knowledge in biology has led to new technological advances and a deeper understanding of the world around us. This course will develop your appreciation of the diversity of living organisms and your understanding of biological principles. You will get plenty of hands-on experience in the labs as well as many fieldwork opportunities. Practical training will equip you with many of the subject-specific, personal and practical skills you will need for your future career. You can opt to take this course with a year of study in the USA; an exchange programme with the University of Toledo in Ohio, which has been running for over 30 years. The University of Toledo was named as a top global player when it comes to taking biotechnology research from the laboratory to the world, and has been recognised by the American Society of Landscape Architects as one of the 22 most beautiful landscaped campuses in the United States.
