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.

In the first two years, you’ll gain a foundation in the biosciences through a set of core units. You’ll also gain hands-on experience of practical scientific techniques in dedicated undergraduate laboratories.

In the final year, you’ll undertake a research project, giving you first-hand experience as a researcher and the opportunity to contribute to some of the world-leading research in the Department.

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 Lilly, Field Studies Council, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, Oxford Gene Technology, AstraZeneca, Genesys and LifeArc.
