Course summary

Develop a broad knowledge of biological systems, and skills that can lead to a range of careers in the biosciences and beyond.

Of all our biosciences courses, biology offers the broadest range of subjects. You’ll gain a wide range of skills and knowledge by learning about life on Earth across all levels. This will give you a broad foundation in biology in areas such as paleontology, ecology, biodiversity, genetics, evolution, cell biology and microbiology.

You will graduate with a solid foundation for further study or graduate roles where a broader knowledge of biosciences is needed. The academic and key skills you develop will also prepare you for a wide range of other careers.

Placement

Going on placement gives you the opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge to a year working professionally. You’ll be employed full-time in a role to match your future career ambitions, broadening your experience and transferable skills. This could give you a competitive edge when applying for graduate jobs.

There is a wide range of placement opportunities available each year, from working in marketing for a pharmaceutical company to a lab-based role at a world-renowned research institute. We have links with some of industry's leading companies. Recent employers include AstraZeneca, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and LifeArc.

Prepare for your future

You’ll graduate with the knowledge and skills for work in a variety of areas, such as the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, environment and education. You could also go on to further study, such as a master’s or PhD.

Studying a biosciences degree requires you to apply a broad skill set to the understanding of complex processes. This skill set is also useful in a range of other careers, such as business, management, marketing and science teaching.
