Program Overview

This course provides excellent teaching in all of key areas of biological sciences including biostatistics, programming in R and data modelling, helping you learn how to design biological research, analyse and model data, and present your results, preparing you for a career where your skills can be applied.

You will do a year-long project as part of a team in the second year, and another year-long project individually, in your third and final year, as well as present your research at the course research conference.

This Biological Sciences degree offers you the flexibility to choose certain modules in your second and third years depending on your interest, allowing you to specialise - from the second year - by taking one of four specialist pathways:

  • Developmental biology
  • Genomics and computational biology
  • Ecology and conservation
  • Animal behaviour and artificial intelligence.

The foundation year course is designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to continue onto your Honours degree. You will study a range of subjects that will underpin your future study and also gain valuable experience of university life, with full access to campus facilities. Successful completion of the year allows you to progress straight onto Level 4 of this course.
