Course summary

**Four pathways are available:Biology (Biological Science), Biology (Animal Biology), Biology (Human Biology) and Biology (Biochemistry).**Biology is one of the most actively changing subjects in the sciences, with biologists seeking solutions to the many challenges that shape our world. You will engage with the subject at every level, from the molecular level, through whole organisms and beyond to their relationships with each other and the wider environment.Our BSc Biology degree has a strong practical emphasis, designed to prepare you for an exciting career in this fascinating field. We have new laboratories equipped with some of the latest technology. Our applied approach is designed to enhance your skills and expertise and boost your graduate employability.If you choose the Animal Biology pathway, you will have the opportunity to explore the wonders of the animal kingdom and the natural world. You'll learn about the fundamentals of biology, from the functioning of a single cell right up to the processes that control reproduction and survival in complex organisms.Taking a broad approach to the subject is the strong feature of our Biological Science pathway. You will study all areas of Biology from DNA to physiology, from cells to ecosystems, from genetics to conservation. In this you will have the opportunity to undertake unique research opportunities in a field based on your area of interest. You’ll also get to explore the latest discoveries and their relationship with established biological principles.Following the Human Biology pathway provides you with insights into an age of unprecedented scientific discovery, with the mapping of the human genome and the potential of stem cell research revolutionising our understanding of how our bodies work.Opting to follow the Biochemistry pathway will enable you to explore the molecular machinery that lies at the heart of the cell and drives all living organisms. There is emphasis on human health, from the processes that cause cancer to the progression of Alzheimer's disease. **Key features**- Opportunity to explore a range of biological science topics and flexibility to focus on Animal Biology, Biological Science, Biochemistry or Human Biology.- Study in a friendly and supportive environment.- Opportunity to undertake an optional international field trip on Biological Science and Animal Biology pathways (additional costs apply).- Links with local Wildlife Trusts and other environmental and conservations agencies, Sea Life Centres and Safari parks.- Volunteer as part of the University’s Environmental Sustainability Eco Campus initiative.- Excellent partnerships with many UK and international research institutions, including The Karolinska Institute - home of the Nobel Prize- New laboratories and extensive specialist equipment - an inspiring environment for you to develop your ideas- Accreditation with the Royal Society of Biology being sought
