Why choose this course?

The biological sciences form the basis of many new integrated areas of science and technology. They are the foundation of our comprehension of a diverse range of subjects, from evolution, genetics and diversity, to medicine, drug and human development, and are employed in new and novel technologies. You can choose to study environmental, human, medical or genetics and molecular biology.

You can also choose to study the Environmental Biology or Genetics and Molecular Biology streams of Biological Sciences in combination with Business. See the Course combinations section for more information.

What will you study?

Year 1 is common to all streams of this Biological Sciences degree – Environmental Biology, Human Biology, Medical Biology, and Genetics and Molecular Biology – as well as a number of other degrees. It has been designed to ensure you have a thorough comprehension of the core subjects within life sciences and provides a measure of flexibility between courses during or at the end of the year.

In Year 2, you will follow the modules within your chosen specialism (Environmental Biology, Human Biology, Medical Biology or Genetics and Molecular Biology) and will develop your knowledge, techniques and practical skills, as well as additional transferable and employability skills. Key to this is a core module associated with your specialist stream that will integrate subject-specific knowledge and develop your skills in preparation for your final-year research project.

All students are encouraged to identify opportunities for work experience during the course, which may be through an optional sandwich year taken between Years 2 and 3.

In your final year, you will examine more-advanced and applied aspects within your subject area. You will also undertake an independent project, which provides an opportunity to research a topic of your choice within your specialism as either a laboratory-based project or a library-based dissertation.
