Biology is the study of life. All life processes are the result of a series of complex interactions at a molecular, cellular and whole organism level. Through this course, you’ll investigate these systems in all their fascinating detail, and develop your academic and practical skills, enabling you to interpret and analyse biological data and evaluate your own work.
The Biological Science BSc (Hons) degree encompasses a broad scope of topics designed to interest the enquiring mind. During the first year you will acquire a solid foundation in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, microbiology, chemistry, human anatomy and data analysis. You’ll begin to understand how macromolecules drive cellular processes and you’ll be introduced to essential data handling and laboratory skills.
