Course summary

OVERVIEW

Why choose this course

Our BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences gives you the exciting opportunity to study biology in its widest sense. As you study, you’ll be able to tailor your course to reflect your emerging interests and prepare you for the career you aspire to.

What you will study

Our BSc (Hons) Biological Sciences course will give you the opportunity to study biological structure and function at various levels, from molecules to cells, whole organisms, and beyond into communities and ecosystems.

You’ll develop your knowledge in a number of current areas including environmental impact, human and animal health issues, and food security.

You’ll study the topics that are fundamental to biosciences and will have opportunities to specialise and tailor your degree, particularly in your final two years, to the areas that interest you.

The skills you will develop include critical thinking, the ability to solve problems, evaluate evidence and analyse data. These skills will be with you for life and prepare you for a wide variety of careers.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

This course will prepare you for a wide range of careers, from scientific and technical roles in specialised areas, through to those which draw upon the breadth of biological sciences, such as teaching and science journalism.

While many of our students go immediately into the scientific job market, others choose to complete further study, such as masters degrees or PhD studentships.

The scientific problem solving skills you will develop may be put to good use within the industrial or finance sector, while biological sciences graduates’ professional and communication skills make them ideal candidates for managerial roles.

Foundation

If you don’t meet our entry requirements, you might still be able to apply for this course with a foundation year. A course with a foundation year includes an extra year of study to prepare you for a full degree course.

Placements

You have the option to complete a Professional Training placement as part of this course. This will give you the opportunity to develop your professional, academic and personal potential, helping to prepare you for your future career.

A significant proportion of placement students at Surrey are offered graduate-level jobs or go onto postgraduate study.
