The BSc Biology degree scheme is designed to provide a broad-spectrum understanding of the themes that run through modern biology. This is ideal for those students who wish to have a comprehensive and integrated degree scheme.
A levels: grades ABB-BBB, to include Biology or Human Biology, or equivalent
Welsh Baccalaureate: Pass acceptable as equivalent to an A grade A level
BTEC: DDM plus A level grade B in Biology/Human Biology
Scottish Highers: ABBCC to include Biology grade B
Access to HE (Science): Pass with Distinction (24 Dist to include 3 in Biology, plus 15 Merits)
IB: 33-32 (including 5 in Biology or Human Biology at Higher Level)
IELTS 6.0 (with a minimum of 6.0 in each component) or equivalent English test
We may consider other qualifications if they are Science-based, if they are equivalent to A-levels, and if the content of the qualification includes significant amounts of Biology (i.e., equivalent to A-level Biology).
All applications will be considered on an individual basis, and we will look at the whole application when deciding whether to make an offer of a place, including: the balance, nature and quality of A-level, AS and GCSE subjects (or equivalent); personal statement and referee’s comments.
General Studies and Key Skills qualifications are normally excluded from our offers.
Our Biology degree scheme offers an excellent range of laboratory and field-based topics with a strong emphasis on the development of key practical skills.
Most modules in Biology have two or three practical and/or field excursion classes.
All students have the opportunity to attend week-long field courses either at the end of Year Two or at the start of Year Three.
Our close proximity to a diverse range of contrasting environments plus our own facilities provides a wide scope for customising your learning experience.
All Biology students carry out a ten week research project module in Year Three. This can be either laboratory or field-based depending on the interests of the student. Some students carry out their projects abroad.
The course has a strong emphasis on the development of personal and transferable skills to assist in later employability.
As scientists in training you will be taught a full range of core skills and practises by leading experts that will enable you to successfully pursue a career within biology and ecology.
