Course summary

This hands-on BSc course will equip you with a wealth of biological knowledge and the practical skills to tackle some of the world's greatest challenges. From genes to ecosystems, you will explore the fundamentals of life on Earth and how this knowledge can be applied to make positive changes to individuals, societies and global environments.The first year consolidates and develops your core knowledge and understanding of biological chemistry, cell biology, human physiology and evolutionary biology. In addition, you'll develop important practical laboratory and scientific skills that will form the basis of future successes in academic writing and experimental design. You'll start to define your pathway through the degree, begin to specialise as a biological scientist and identify potential placement opportunities.Year two provides opportunities to explore your chosen subjects in greater depth. With guidance from expert academics you'll start to take ownership of your knowledge by developing your own project ideas and considering potential career paths. You'll explore connections between subjects and gain an appreciation of how professional research is conducted. At this point you might also choose to undertake a 30-week placement.The final year offers further opportunities to specialise in your biological disciplines and really focuses your mind on career paths. You'll develop and complete a defining capstone dissertation project that will highlight your abilities and interests – ending the degree as an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and skilled biological scientist.Our students in the Life and Environmental Sciences Department often work in partnership with staff to co-create research, collaborating with professionals and assisting with placement opportunities. You can learn more about this and the exciting opportunities available at our Co-creating Science web page. Graduates from this degree have gone on to work in industries surrounding biotechnology, forensic and biomedical research, environmental science and education to name a few.
