Our programme focuses on both the molecular and organismal aspects of biology, bringing together practical lab and field based teaching with cell biology, genetics, evolutionary genomics, ecology and physiology. You will have the opportunity to specialise in your area of interest, choosing a focus in animal, plant or environmental science.
Studying Biological Sciences helps you develop a broad understanding of the nature of living things, from molecules and cells, organisms and populations, to communities and biomes.
Your courses will give you an excellent foundation in the theory and practical elements behind the study of life and provide you with the technical skills to pursue your own interests through your project work.
