Become a scientist
Learn to understand the practice of science, designing experiments and interpreting data. We teach you to make connections between different aspects of the course. For example, how micro-organisms infect and cause disease and then how we respond to this infection with an immune response. You will learn how to read and interpret scientific reports.
Learn the latest research
Science doesn’t stand still and neither do we. Our academics are always reading the latest research - many of them are involved in it. We incorporate these findings into the lectures so that you can benefit from the latest knowledge.
We have well-equipped labs with anatomical models, microscopes etc. Our fully equipped Category II laboratories enable students to handle pathogenic bacteria. Come to an Open Day and you will get to see for yourself.
Our BSc (Hons) Biology is recognised by the Royal Society of Biology, which ensures that graduates automatically fulfil the educational requirements for Associate Membership (AMRSB) of the Royal Society - a great boost to your CV!
Study diverse modules from Tropical Medicine and Pharmacology to Anatomy and Physiology to Immunology and Biological Anthropology.
Practical sessions are the best way to learn. You will get plenty of lab time and get to work on a wide range of practicals. These sessions allow you to apply the knowledge you have learnt in lectures.
Here are a few examples of our practicals:
