Course Information

Our extended degree in biology is a dynamic, multidisciplinary approach to understanding the processes of life. It includes a foundation year and requires lower entry points.

Biology is the study of every aspect of life, from drug discovery and vaccinations for diseases to environmental factors and climate change. Our cutting-edge biology degree offers topics as diverse as cancer therapeutics, applied plant ecology and neuroscience. You begin this extended degree with a foundation year before moving to our three-year course.

You will develop the skills to address some of our greatest problems, from sustainable food production using plant-based products to how we treat Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. You'll have the chance to put your learning into practice through laboratory sessions and fieldwork, plus an international placement.

Our degree provides the scientific training and transferable skills you need to become a professional scientist. Your potential career options as a biology graduate include research roles in laboratories to positions in food and farming start-ups and roles in education. You could explore careers investigating cures in medical research or inspiring the next generation of scientists by training to become a biology teacher.
