Biology at Keele focuses on the amazing world of organisms – from how they’ve evolved to their relationships with the environment and each other.
Keele takes a broad approach to biology, examining the diversity of life and its evolution from the geological past. You’ll consider the complexity of biological processes and mechanisms at molecular, cellular, organismal and ecosystem levels, exploring related philosophical and ethical issues. You’ll sample, record and analyse data in the field and in our excellent labs, and learn how biology can help to improve the quality and sustainability of life. Complete this course over three years, or add an extra year with an industrial work placement between the second and third year. You can choose to study Biology at Keele as a single honours programme or combined with another subject for dual honours (including major and minor routes).
We accept a number of EU and International qualifications for entry to our degree programmes.
Please note that there will normally be English Language requirements for entry to our courses.
