Our flagship BSc Biological Sciences course allows you to study a wide range of science subjects in the first year without prematurely committing yourself to any particular specialisation. The first year modules cover all the major areas of biology, alongside giving you a grounding in mathematics, statistics, computing, physics and chemistry. You will find the latter units especially valuable if you do not have A-levels in these subjects.
The flexibility of the programme encourages you to explore and pursue your own specialist interests within Biological Sciences as the course progresses. You will have the opportunity to select from more than 25 advanced optional modules that cover a diverse range of scientific subjects, ranging from Behavioural Ecology to Evolutionary Biology. You will also have the chance to apply your developing scientific interests through independent research, as you complete a substantial research project in your final year.
